random sampling within each group
after deciding subgroups, randomly selecting a group and surveying the entire group
creating a system in order to randomly pick people
includes individuals who are convenient, not a good representative
Voluntary response sample

everyone available to be framed
who ended up being chosen
looking at data, drawing conclusions

analyze data that has already been collected
To determine cause/effect relationships
Random assignement of subject/units to treatments is required
Random selection of subjects is not required (can volunteer)
To draw conclusions about the relationships against variables
Factor in designing experiments

Multiply levels x factors
break subjects into groups by characteristic that could possibly be influenced in the experiment
when subject doesn't know what theyre getting
