Cluster Sample

A sampling method where the population is separated into groups, typically geographically, and a random selection of clusters is made. Each individual in the cluster becomes part of the sample.

Clusters

Smaller subgroups of the population, not necessarily similar in any way besides all being together in one place, making the individuals easier to sample together.
