# Oblique Sampling

## Definition of Oblique Sampling

Oblique Sampling: Oblique sampling is a type of non-random sampling technique. It is used when the researcher wants to study a specific population but does not have access to all members of that population. Oblique sampling involves selecting units for the study in a way that is not completely random. The units can be selected in any number of ways, including by using quotas, stratified sampling, or cluster sampling. This technique is often used when the population is difficult to access or when the population is too large to sample randomly.
