Solid Waste Management

30 to 60 percent of all the urban solid waste in developing countries is uncollected and less than 50 percent of the population is served (Woldbank, 2014)

Simple Random Sampling Fact

" Simple Random Sampling is often meaningless, for it is unrepresentative in face of large amounts of information about units (University of Reading)."

The ever increasing need for a representative statistical sample in empirical research has created the demand for an effective method of determining sample size.  To address the existing gap, Krejcie & Morgan (1970) came up with a table for determining sample size for a given population for easy reference.

 

Table 1: Table for Determining Sample Size for a Finite Population   krejcie and morgan table of determining sample size

The Table is constructed using the following formula for determining sample size: krejcie-and-morgan-formula-for-determining-sample-size-

NOTE:

There is no need of using the formula since the table of determining sample size has all the provisions you require to arrive at your sample size.
