Systematic sampling design is another random sampling design where the selection of subjects is dependent on a system. The system is to select every nth or kth number and then selecting at equal intervals until an adequate sample is achieved.
To determine n or k, we divided the sample size from the population. It is also important to note that the starting point is randomly selected and not necessarily the first on the list.
