Question from Tuesday lecture : LUSENET : SCILS-Comm300 : One Thread

During Tuesday's lecture about Sampling, Dr. Katz had a subheading of "Buying of Informaion" on his outline. What was this part about?

Hi, Dom and others-

"Buying information" might be a phrase that indicates that social research involves costs. irregardless of various means of doing reseach, the research should consider "fund" factor very carefully -- calling out 1000 people to ask 10 question; sending out 2000 letters with "return envelop and a stamp"; and so on. Therefore, sampling should be carefully designed and executed; otherwise, it may become waste of money...

That's what I am guessing. You may want to ask him in face to face later? (hey! impress me! :-))

impress him... not me (I am already impressed!).

Sorry, I spelt a word wrong. It's "Buying of Information". Thanx.
