# Part 1: Sampling Design

**Write **a 350- to 700-word paper using** **the scenario and two variables your learning team developed for the Week 2 Business Research Project Part 1 assignment, in which the goal is to submit a random sampling plan in such detail that another researcher could replicate the method.

I want to use the example of whjen people will ugrade thier phones. You can make up the population size and so forth. This paper will be used later to build a bigger more in depth presentation. Keep that in mind. If you have any questions please contact me.

- The sample size
- Method of random sampling which may include:
- Simple
- Stratified
- Systematic
- Cluster

**Calculate** the sample size for the mean or sample or sample size for the proportion, using a 95% confidence level, estimated population standard deviation or estimate of the true population proportion, and a 5% margin of error. Place the calculation in the Appendix.

**Discuss** how validity and reliability will be achieved.

If applicable,** explain** how human subjects will be protected.
