To get a sense of election outcomes, we cannot collect data from the entire population as a whole . The political group conduct a survey of voters in ten precincts .
This is an example of Cluster sampling
Cluster sampling is used when we cannot get information about the population as a whole but can get information about the clusters or group . For this population should contain different types of subpopulation.
In the above question also we have taken ten precincts and then conducted the survey.
So , Cluster sampling is used here.
