Systematic Matching sampling is a way, a procedure or a manner of taking action following processes. In such cases before conducting field research, it is taking a certain approach of identifying which course of action best suits the chosen field of study with concern to undertaking research. The purpose of this essay is to discuss what systematic matching is and how researchers use this method to determine satisfactory results. “The purpose of matching is to find an available respondent who is as similar as possible to the selected member of the target sample” (Rivers, 2009: 6).

Systematic matching sampling is when an individual or a targeted group of people are matched due to similarities they may have. According to Black, “Systematic sampling is to be applied only if the given population is logically homogenous, because systematic sample units are uniformily distributed over the population” (Black, 2004: 7). Black further states that in using this procedure each member of the population has an equal chance of being selected for study and that it is a more efficient way of conducting research. As an example, a supermarket wants to investigate the buying habits of their customers and so resorts to using systematic matching sampling choosing every tenth and fifteenth customer that enters the supermarket and so they conduct the study on that particular sample. This is random sampling done systematically for systematic matching sampling cannot be rendered alone. The first and foremost step is to select the first case randomly and from this step, choices that are made thereafter will be at regular intervals.

In our area of study we would like to review the effectiveness of Student Learning Support Services formerly CELT to students of the USP, concentrating on those who have accessed such services and are in their 2nd and 3rd years of study. For example, we would like to sample 6 students from a class of 85 students who have accessed a Study Skills...

INTRODUCTION
A sample is a unit or subset of selection from a larger population that is used in studying to draw conclusions regarding the whole population. A sample is usually selected from the population because it is not easy to study the entire population at once and the cost of doing so may be very high. The sample should be the best representation of the whole population to enable accurate...

...Sampling is concerned with the selection of a subset of individuals from within a statistical population to estimate characteristics of the whole population. Acceptance sampling is used to determine if a production lot of material meets the governing specifications. Two advantages of sampling are that the cost is lower and data collection is faster than measuring the entire population.
Sampling is the process of selecting units (e.g.,...

Sampling methodologies
Sampling
It may be defined as a process of selecting units that may be people, organizations etc, from a larger whole i.e. from a population of interest, so that by studying the sample we may come up with general characteristics of the entire population under consideration.

...There are many ways to select a random sample. Four of them are discussed below:
Simple Random Sampling: In this sampling technique, each sample of the same size has the same probability of being selected. Such a sample is called a simple random sample. One way to select a simple random sample is by a lottery or drawing. For example, if we need to select 5 students from a class of 50, we write each of the 50 names on a separate piece of paper. Then, we place all...

1. RANDOM SAMPLING
Random sampling is usually carried out when the area under study is fairly uniform, very large, and or there is limited time available. When using random sampling techniques, large numbers of samples/records are taken from different positions within the habitat. A quadrat frame is most often used for this type of...

Sampling
We are now putting all of the pieces together. Considering each observation xi as an outcome from a random variable Xi , we have that functions g(x1 ; x2 ; :::; xn ) are draws from the random variable
Pn g(X1 ; X2 ; :::; Xn ):
For 120a the function we are interested in is the sample mean — g(x1 ; x2 ; :::; xn ) = n1 i=1 xi : In this chapter
we work with this function for distributions with many random variables.

Purposive sampling, also known as judgmental, selective or subjective sampling, is a type of non-probability sampling technique. Non-probability sampling focuses on sampling techniques where the units that are investigated are based on the judgement of the researcher.

Purposive sampling represents a group of...
