Hi, Dr. Mel. I’ve learned about non-probability sampling from MEL courses. Do you think that we could use snowball sampling in a survey on the collaboration scheme of community development in HK?

Hi there. While it sounds like data visualizations are so valuable, I wonder if there is any weakness about it that social workers should keep in mind?

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
