Simple Random Sampling The simplest form of random sampling is called simple random sampling. Pretty tricky, huh? Here's the quick description of simple random sampling: Objective: To select n units out of N such that each N C n has an equal chance of being selected. Procedure: Use a table of random numbers, a computer random number generator, or a

### Independence of random variables

question is, which explanatory variables (also called independent variables or covariates) to give random effects. A quantity being random means that it fluctuates over units in some population; and which particular unit is being observed, depends on chance. When some effect in a statistical model is modeled as being random, we mean that we wish to

The usual method of obtaining random numbers is to use computer packages such as SPSS. Tables of random numbers may also be found in the appendices of most statistical textbooks. Simple random sampling, although technically valid, is a very laborious way of carrying out sampling. A simpler and quicker way is to use systematic sampling.
