  • 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.
