The first step is to develop representative samples. This must be done with a scientifically drawn random selection process. No volunteers can be accepted or the statistical accuracy of the sample would be in jeopardy. Nationally, there are 5,000 television households in which electronic meters (called People Meters) are attached to every TV set, VCR, cable converter box, satellite dish, or other video equipment in the home. The meters continually record all set tunings. In addition, NMR asks each member of the household to let them know when they are watching by pressing a pre-assigned button on the People Meter.

Furthermore, the students may be coerced into participating in the study by their instructor and hence may not give the most candid answers to questions on a survey. Thus, the manner in which a sample is selected is of utmost importance to the credibility and applicability of the study’s results. In order to precisely describe the components that are necessary for a sample to be effective, the following definitions are required. target population sample sampled population observation unit sampling unit Target population: The complete collection of objects whose description is the major goal of the study.

In this method, a telephone exchange number (the first three digits of a seven-digit number) is selected, and then the last four digits are dialed randomly until a fixed number of households of a specified type are reached. This technique produces samples from the target population but most random digit-dialing samples include only landline numbers. Thus, the increasing number of households with cell phones only are excluded. Also, many people screen calls before answering a call. These two problems are creating potentially large biases in telephone surveys.
