Administrators at Texas A&M University were interested in estimating the percentage of students who are the first in their family to go to college. The A&M student body has about 46,000 members. A professor teaching a large lecture class of 350 students samples her class by rolling a die. Then, starting with the row number on the die (1 to 6), she passes out a survey to every fourth row of the large lecture hall. She says that this is a Simple Random Sample because everyone had an equal opportunity to sit in any seat and because she randomized the choice of rows. What do you think? Be specific.

Solution

VerifiedNot a simple random sample, because friends often sit together in class and thus groups of friends will be either in the sample or not in the sample. Thus each individual will not have an equal chance of being in the sample.
