Instead you continue using your chosen procedure such as snowballing or theoretical sampling until a ‘saturation point’ is reached. This was a term used by Glaser and Strauss (1967) to describe that time of your research when you really do think that everything is complete and that you’re not obtaining any new information by continuing. In your written report you can then describe your sam- pling procedure, including a description of how many people were contacted. SUMMARY X If it is not possible to contact everyone in the research population, researchers select a number of people to contact. X There are two main types of sampling category – prob- ability samples and purposive samples. X In probability samples, all people within the research population have a specifiable chance of being selected. Only within random samples do participants have an equal chance of being selected. X The size of sample will depend upon the type and pur- pose of the research. X Remember that with postal surveys it might be difficult to control and know who has filled in a questionnaire. X In some purposive samples it is difficult to specify at the beginning of the research how many people will be contacted. X It is possible to use a mixture of sampling techniques within one project which may help to overcome some of the disadvantages found within different procedures. This is a document which sets out your ideas in an easily accessible way.
