What is a random sample

A random sample is a selection from the population of interest where each item (persons, households, widgets, etc.) has an equal chance of being selected. The idea being that measuring a random sample of sufficient size will accurately (within a margin of error) reflect the "true" value that exists in the population - while at the same time reducing your study to a manageable size.

A random sample is integral in good survey design to reduce bias in your experiment.
