Random Sampling Statement

Random Sampling Statement (for those who are not surveying entire population):

For results to be generalized to the entire population, every effort should be made to select a random group of students across your campus. The selection of the population sample is as important as the sample size. We strongly recommend that, unless you have an expert on your staff, you work with your institutional research department or acknowledgeable research faculty member regarding sample selection and survey administration. If you do not have the expertise to create a random sample, you may be wise to invest in more surveys in the interest of collecting statistically valid data. If you need more surveys, contact the EBI Service Center.
