What does it mean?
Sampling is a method that allows researchers to interview, observe or ask questions of a smaller group drawn from a larger one. Ideally, if the sample is sufficiently large in proportion to the whole group and is chosen carefully, the results obtained from the smaller group (the sample) will be very similar to those that would be obtained if everybody in the group under investigation (the population) had been involved in the research.
