Simple Random Sampling

  • Sarjinder Singh

Abstract

Simple Random Sampling (SRS) is the simplest and most common method of selecting a sample, in which the sample is selected unit by unit, with equal probability of selection for each unit at each draw. In other words, simple random sampling is a method of selecting a sample s of n units from a population Ω of size N by giving equal probability of selection to all units. It is a sampling scheme in which all possible combinations of n units may be formed from the population of N units with the same chance of selection.
