Random Selection: Each member of the population is equally likely to be chosen.Critical for many statistical tests that make assumptions about the distribution of the population
With Q-Select, we sample and recruit from entire populations using our proprietary lists. The larger sample frames give our studies greater validity than those using research panels.9
