Last week I put a call out to adults alienated as children, inviting them to take part in my research which will form the basis of a new therapy for this group of people.
Research. Great Karen. “put out a call” – you do realize the requirements of research regarding subject recruitment and bias, don’t you Karen? It has to do with sampling from the population. You do know about sampling, don’t you Karen? You have a whole population, and you are going to draw a sample from that population. Then you are going to extrapolate back to the whole population, based on the characteristics of your sample. So you want your sample to be – representative – of the whole population. That’s really, really important in research Karen. If your sample isn’t representative, if it’s biased in some way, then the conclusions you will draw will be… wrong.
