What is the difference between a random sample and a simple random​ sample?

With a random​ sample, each individual has the same chance of being selected.

With a simple random​ sample, all samples of the same size have the same chance of being selected.

2

Systematic sampling

12

Determine whether the sample described below is a simple random sample.

A quality control engineer selects every 5000th chocolate that is produced.

The sample is not a simple random sample because every sample of the same size does not have the same chance of being selected.

13

Determine whether the sample described below is a simple random sample.

In order to test for a difference in the way that workers and non-workers purchase magazines, a research institution polls exactly 522 adult workers and 522 adult non-workers randomly selected from adults in the United States.

14

Determine whether the sample described below is a simple random sample.

In the last election​, 183,644 adults voted in a county. A researcher plans to conduct a survey of 800 of those voters. After obtaining a list of those who voted, he numbers the list from 1 to 183,644, and then he uses a computer to randomly generate 800 numbers between 1 and 183,644. His sample consists of the voters corresponding to the selected numbers.

The sample is a simple random sample because every sample of size 800 has the same chance of being selected.

15

Determine whether the sample described below is a simple random sample.

Names from the list are randomly selected in a way that is equivalent to writing the names on slips of​ paper, mixing them in a​ bowl, and selecting the required number of potential house buyers.
