Piloting a Representative Sampling Strategy for Enrolling MURDOCK Study Participants
What is a representative sample?
- An unbiased, randomly selected group within a population that represents the characteristics of that population
Why is it important?
- To include a broad representation of the population’s characteristics so that study findings more accurately represent our local population.
Why a pilot?
- To test our representative sample recruitment processes on a small number of households (only 100) before pursuing recruitment of a much larger group within the local population.
