Abstract: This paper investigated how sampling weights were implemented in regression model under an informative sampling design. Two classes of estimators were tested, one is based on design-based method, and the others are based on model based method. In particular, this study examined the estimators derived from the so-called sample distribution approach. A simulation was conducted to compare the relative performance of those estimators under non-ignorable sampling design.

Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: Based on a pilot study of 159 university undergraduates, this paper presents Respondent Driven Sampling, a new method of studying hidden populations, as a viable method of understanding overall network structure. The method was found to be highly effective and efficient. Examples identifying bridge groups, centrality, and multiplex association are discussed.

Abstract: Sampling procedures are crucial to the accuracy of research findings. Yet mass communication studies often rely on convenience samples of college students, thus threatening the external validity and generalizability of findings. The present study contributes a critical evaluation of sampling methods and sample populations in all quantitative mass communication studies (N = 1,178), both surveys and experiments, conducted in the United States and published over 15 years (2000-2014) in six leading peer-reviewed communication journals. Results revealed that the majority of quantitative studies (82.8%) relied on nonprobability sampling methods. Only 29.0% of the surveys used probability sampling methods. College student samples were used in 51.2% of quantitative studies. Experimental studies (79.0%) were more likely to use student samples than survey studies (28.2%). An overreliance on nonprobability sampling methods and, to a much lesser degree, college student samples, can cast doubt on the conclusions drawn from many mass communication studies.
