Comparisons of Sampling Methods for Inventory of Nursery Stock

This study was conducted to meet the demand of our nurserymen for a comparison of the relatively simple and cheap procedures of systematic sampling with those of random and stratified random sampling which were considered in a previous report of this Department (12). In the last two methods of sampling, sample size, number, and sampling technique were considered. The present samplings were concerned with only the number of living trees. In this discussion the term "systematic" indicates that the first count was taken at a random placement and all subsequent counts at equal intervals. It is not claimed that this procedure is the equivalent of random sampling.
