How do the sampling methods and sample sizes vary for the different types of quantitative and qualitative research? Using your research questions (qualitative and quantitative), what sampling method would you use to conduct your study? Why? How would you determine the sample type and size? “The process of selecting a group of people, events, behaviors, or other elements that represent the population being studied” is a sampling method”(Stillwell, Fineout-Overholt, Melnyk, & Williamson, 2010, p. 336).
