C. Describe a situation where you would use cluster sampling.
A)in cluster analysis,researcher divides the population into separate groups, called clusters. Then, a simple random sample of clusters is selected from the population. So cluster sample is a probability sample design.
B) advantages of cluster sampling
#very useful when population is large
Disadvantages of cluster sampling
#standard error of the estimate is likely to be large
#representation is likely to become an issue
