“Every element of one sub-section of the population is selected.” This is an example of ‘Stratified’ sampling, right? Or, is this an example of ‘Cluster’ sampling?

Firstly, I would like to say thanks for your useful lecture.
In my opinion, stratified sampling is same as quota sampling as both of them require knowledge of the proportion of the population, and with stratified sampling we also need a specific sample to examine (say 200 people) and now it is same as quota sampling (question in the sample of 200 with 60% women and 40% men).
I also have another question about systematic. I think systematic is also impossible as random sampling as we are almost unable to mark number to all items to know which of them is 8th and which are every 10th (unless they are already numbered).
Sorry if I miss some things in the lecture that are related to my questions as I cannot hear what the teacher said clearly. Thanks again !

Stratified and quota are similar, but not the same.
With stratified having decided how many to select you select at random from each group.
With quota you ask (in the example in the notes) the first 120 women and then no more women – they are not selected at random.
Systematic sampling is not random. The only truly random sampling is where every item has an equal chance of being selected..

Thank you very much for the lessons very helpful.
I am still not quite clear the difference between Stratified and Multistage sampling, as in both you need to divide or split in group. However, it looks to me that if the question mention the word “proportion” or “percentage” it will be definitely Stratified. Am I correct?
Thank you in advance for your help.

As the professor said in the lesson that Stratified sampling focuses on category while Multistage sampling focuses more on groups. e.g. Man or Woman(it’s a category); a big group divided into small groups (it’s not specifically concerning about men or women, they can both in those groups)
and..yes, “proportion” and “percentage” can be a distinction between these two sampling methods.

Can we use these lectures for June 15 exams
January 19, 2015 at 11:54 am
Yes – the syllabus has not changed.

Thank you for the material. I do have a question: i have kaplan f2 book, it only has 20 chapters (2 of which is exam papers and question), is it ok? Thanks again
November 18, 2014 at 4:58 pm
If it is Kaplan then certainly it is OK
But most important is the Exam Kit. If you watch and understand our free lectures then you do not need the Study Text so much.
However what you do need is lots of practice – the Exam Kit contains lots of exam-standard questions to practice on.

I have a same question as person below me. The questions on page 7 of the lecture notes I have and the questions mentioned on the video don’t match.
August 25, 2014 at 4:53 pm
I changed the questions a little because one of them certainly was not a good question.
However, I am not going to re-record the lecture just for that
August 25, 2014 at 5:52 pm
hehe I was bit confused. Thanks! (Love your lecture btw)
February 2, 2016 at 12:49 am
May I ask which one was not a good question, sir?
February 2, 2016 at 12:51 am
If you don’t mind, that is..
June 11, 2014 at 10:50 pm
Are the test questions in the video around 30:23 the same as the ones in the course notes or different? Are they there or am I looking in the wrong place. The questions on page 7(mentioned in the lecture) are not the same as the ones in the notes.
February 18, 2014 at 8:50 pm
Is there any way to increase the speed of the videos? If not it would be a great feature to add that way people can watch at what they feel is a comfortable speed.
January 15, 2014 at 5:07 am
