A representative sample is a subset of a population that seeks to accurately reflect the characteristics of the larger group. For example, a classroom of 30 students with 15 male and 15 female students could generate a representative sample that might include six students: three males and three females.

I thought it would take too long and be too expensive to conduct a social survey. To do research as a front-line employee would be too challenging. Please suggest a more effective approach.

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?
