       For the fact that the researcher could not cover the entire population, some proportions were chosen to represent the entire population. The formular used to determining the sample size if Taro formular because it is a finite population.

Taro Yamane   n     =          N

                                  1 + N(e)2

 

Where     n     =     Sample size

              N     =     Total population

              e     =     Unit of tolerable errors

              I      =     Constant

       n     =            500

                     1 + 500 (0.05)2

 

       n     =           500

                     1+ 500 x 0.0025

 

       n     =        500

                     1 + 1.25

 

       n     =     500

                     2.25

 

       n     =     222 

 

       Sampling techniques used in this study is stratified random sampling techniques which divide the population into sub-groups or strata and random sampling method is used to determine the sample size. This technique is used to obtain information on the entire population as well as the individual stratum. This technique is more expensive than the random sampling.
