About Lesson

Multi-stage sampling is a form of random sampling where samples are selected in a sequence of stages where each sample is drawn from within the previously selected sample. It is similar to cluster sampling only that while cluster sampling conducts a complete enumeration of all the people in the cluster, multi-stage samples within the cluster. Sampling in multi-stage occurs in stages.
