According to the provided information, a population is divided into clusters and it is found that all the items within a cluster are alike.
The most appropriate sampling procedure to adopt here is the cluster sampling.
Cluster sampling is a sampling method in which the researcher divides the population into clusters, after which another simple random sample is selected to perform the data analysis. This sampling method helps in obtaining information from one or more area.
In cluster sampling, mutually homogeneous yet internally heterogeneous groupings are evident in a population.
