Sampling with Hard to Reach Populations

The purpose of this assignment is to critically think about strategies for including hard to reach populations into research.

For your initial post, respond to each of the following:

· Define what is meant by hard to reach populations;

· Briefly describe the difference between probability and non-probability sampling methods;

· Name 3 (three) specific populations that could be considered hard to reach;

· For one of these populations, if you were conducting a study on the population, identify the type of non-probability sampling method and one strategy you would use to recruit individuals from the population for your study. Be sure to include brief rationales for each of your choices.
