1. Can you identify and explain the sampling design that could be used in evaluating how the Veterans Health Admin curtail delays in Vets receiving medical appointments and how the design addresses issues of validity and reliability.

There are several choices both under probability and non-probability. For Non-probability, one might consider quota sampling. This allows the researcher to select based on pre-identified characteristics. These characteristics should exist in the population, so identifying the characteristics and their variables is important.
Under probability sampling, stratified would be an option. Simple random or cluster random would work, but sometimes does not focus on the targets the researcher is trying to reach. Stratified samples divide the entire target population into strata (sub groups) then perform random ...
