Cluster Sampling

Cluster Sampling divides the population area into sections (clusters) then randomly selects clusters and chooses all the members of those clusters.

- Triola (2009).


This example shows clusters of individuals separated by their street/avenue.  Joe then chooses one street/avenue to do his survey. This is just one example of a cluster sampling.
