Imagine that a researcher wants to understand more about the career goals of students at a particular university. Let?s say that the university has roughly 10,000 students. These 10,000 students are our population ( N ). Each of the 10,000 students is known as a unit. In order to select a sample ( n ) of students from this population of 10,000 students, we could choose to use self-selection sampling. Let's imagine that because we have a small budget and limited time, we choose a sample size of 100 students. However, it is important to the sampling strategy that each of the students is in their final year of university. Therefore, you would need to ensure that only final year students took part in the research. To publicise this, the study could run an advertisement on student radio, the student newspaper, or on physical and online notice boards accessed by students at the university.
"Thanks a million for your help with refining my problem statement a few weeks ago. I followed your advice, and my resubmitted proposal passed IRB approval. I was most impressed with your time efficiency. You were able to, in a matter of minutes, extract the most important aspects of my existing problem statement, add verbiage that sorely needed emphasizing, and relate it beautifully to my overall purpose statement... nothing short of brilliant on your part, Dr. Lani. I even got positive accolade on my revised problem statement from the ARB reviewer! I will definitely be in touch once my data collection is complete and Chapter 4 is ready for construction."
Policy Option C
The last option that constitutes a combination of all possible options available makes it the best one. The project will be called the “AAA” or Action on Aids in Africa, and in alliance with the IMF, the World Bank, and the UN, the plan for eliminating the threat of AIDS in Africa will come to a close. Funding of $20 billion will be presented to the project over a five year initiative.
The goals of the plan are as follows:
· Every African living with HIV/AIDS should have access to lifesaving
antiretroviral therapy on or before December 2003.
· Every African pregnant woman should have access to life saving medicines that can reduce or elimate mother to child transmission of HIV on or before August 2003.
· Every African AIDS orphan should be in school and receive appropriate medical care on or before December 2003.
· The African nation should have enough resources to mount a credible information, education, and communication campaign against HIV transmission on or before August 2003.
· Every African country with five percent or more of its population living with
HIV/AIDS should have their debts cancelled and the savings channeled to
health and social programs on or before August 2003.
