Introduction:

Random sampling: It is a probabilistic method of sampling, in which, each population unit is equally likely to be selected into the sample, during a particular selection.

Systematic sampling: It is a probabilistic method of sampling, in which, a constant k is first determined, such that a random number is selected between 1 and k; the population unit corresponding to this number (say, k0) is selected into the sample; thereafter every kth population unit is taken into the sample, till the desired sample size, n is attained. the If the population size, N is known, then k = N/n, or the nearest whole number to the fraction.

Convenience sampling: It is a non-probabilistic method of sampling, in which, data is collected from a section of the population that is most convenient to collect data fr...
