    The definition for Stratified sampling I have is:

    "Interviewing only those with a key characteristic for the sample. For example, Olay might only interview women aged 30 to 45 as they are key potential buyers."

I have two books and one says that but he other says once the subsections have have been interviews will be conducted picking people from each subsection and the amount of people interviewed reflects the portion of then entire population ..

    I think so.

    That's pretty cool! I do AQA German and I thought it was quite hard. I'm not very good at that.
    Same. I thought it was pretty hard, sometimes I regret taking it but I am either dropping Business or German.

    I swear the definition varies. I learnt randomly sampled from people who share common characteristics.

    The variation really annoys me because I am never sure whether an examiner would give you a mark if the definition was correct, despite whethet they were looking for a specific one.

    Stratified sampling I put: The sample is a proportional representation of the target population.

    It was only 4000 people out of half a million (the target market) so it under-represents your target market.

    If I put 1 argument for and 1 argument against and a good evaluation, would I still get ok marks?

    yes, if your evaluation was good (5 marks) and your 2 arguments were good (4-5 marks each) then you've covered all 15 marks.

    I said a stratified sample was one where people were randomly chosen from within a sub group.

    For demand I wrote 'The amount of people that would be willing to buy a product at a given price' however I have no idea if this is right as never learnt a definition for it when revising!

    On the stratified sampling question would you still get definition marks if you designed primary market research instead?

    They usually allow marks to be offered to either words when there is two that can be defined like in that question!

    I hope so. I defined primary market research because I didn't know the meaning of stratified sampling...should've gone over it beforehand :rolleyes:
