Can you help me get started with this assignment?

1. (a) How can you avoid bias when selecting samples for human services research?

(b) Imagine that you are going to design a survey that will be administered to consumers/clients in your field (e.g., nursing home residents, youth mentors, single mothers).
— How would you go about sampling from this population in order to generate meaningful data?
— What might be some of the challenges in ending up with a representative sample?

2. List different measures of variability discussed in the readings and, using your professional field, provide an example to illustrate the concept. If you were a manager looking at these measures of variability around some aspect of employee productivity, what may they tell you about an individual’s or team’s performance?
