Sample size
The process of determining the proper sample size was established through a series of calculations and after obtaining all the possible sample sizes, the largest one was taken into consideration to collect the closest number to a representative sample of the population. The following two equations where used: Equation 1:

N=z2 *(p.q)
E2
N= sample size
Z=level of confidence interval at 95% so z=1.96
P=estimated percent of population
E=acceptable sample error expressed as a percent (5%).

Equation 2:

N=s2*z2
E2
N= sample size
S=(minimum-maximum value) and divide the range by 6.
Z=level of confidence interval at 95% so z=1.96.
E=acceptable sample error expressed as a percent (5%).

For each question the series of calculations lead to the following results: The sample size for question 1 is calculated using equation 1 and n=245.8624 rounded to n=246. The sample size for question 2 is calculated using equation 1 and n=368.79 rounded to n=369. The sample size for question 3 is calculated using equation 1 and n=288.12 rounded to n=289. The sample size for question 4 is calculated using equation 1 and n=349.5856 rounded to n=350. The sample size for question 5 is calculated using equation 1 and n=276.5952 rounded to n=277. The sample size for question 6 is calculated using equation 1 and n=248.8624 rounded to n=246. The sample size for question 7 is calculated using equation 1 and n=368.7936 rounded to n=369. The sample size for question 8 is calculated using equation 1 and n=349.5856 rounded to n=350. The sample size for question 9 is calculated using equation 1 and n=368.7936 rounded to n=369. The sample size for question 10, 11, and 12 are calculated using equation 2 the following way: N=4/62*1.962

0.52
N=sample size
S=(5-1)/6=4/6=
Z=95% equivalent to z=1.96
E=the average between two scales. Then 2-1=1/2=0.5
Therefor the sample size n=6.8295 rounded to n=7
The sample size for question 13 is calculated using equation 2...

...things that is the subject of exploration.
A census involves obtaining information, not from a sample, but rather from the entire population or universe.
A sample (as opposed sampling) is a subset of the population/universe.
For Marketing Research purposes, sampling usually involves people, not data or things.
Sampling Plans are strategies and mechanics for selecting members of the sample from the population:

Types of Samples
Subjective or Convenience Sample
- Has some possibility of bias
- Cannot usually say it is representative
- Selection made by ease of collection
Simple Random Sample
- No subjective bias
- Equal chance of selection; e.g., select the fifth chart seen on every third day
- Can usually be backed to say it is representative
Systematic Sample
- Is a random...

The difference between nonprobability and probability sampling is that nonprobability sampling does not involve random selection and probability sampling does. Does that mean that nonprobability samples aren't representative of the population? Not...
