cluster sampling


cluster sampling
A method of selecting a sample in which the population is divided into clusters (groups) from each of which a random sample is taken. This technique is often used in auditing. For example, groups of, say, invoices are chosen at random by the auditor and then each item in each group is examined in detail.
