The owner of a large company is conducting a survey about job satisfaction, including questions about salary, hours, stress, and other conditions. There are about 800 employees in the company, including 100 executive positions, 650 middle-management positions, and 50 custodial positions. The owner wants to include about 10% of his employees in the survey sample.
Identify a sampling method that would lead to a representative sample for the survey. Explain why it would be a good choice and give details about the process.
10% of 800 = 80 total in the sample
Your sample should be based on the ratio of actual positions. Randomly choose 10% of each of the employee categories.
