Can I perform statistical analysis on convenience sampling? I searched about it online and in many books, but, couldn’t find an answer. So that’s why I am here asking the same question from all of you. I also consulted one of my seniors, and she said no because it’s not a representative sample. I would appreciate the urgent tips and suggestions from all of you.
If your sample is biased in your report, and it is clearly stated then, you can use convenience sampling in the analysis.
According to me, convenient sampling will not represent the desired population in your study. It will not give you an accurate representation of the population. You can use statistical and social research methods, but the problem with them is they are not included in probability sampling.
