Why is sampling important?

Usually want to talk about a POPULATION

Easier to get a sub-set of the population (SAMPLE)

In a good sample

Results from a good sample should match the parent population (REPRESENTATIVE)

Participants should be chosen without bias (RANDOM)

This allows you to GENERALIZE the results--

what holds for the sample should also hold for   the larger group
