# OBJECTIVE: To understand the perception of people about the premium prices of Apple products.

POPULATION: A population can be defined as including all people or items with the characteristic one wishes to understand. SAMPLE: A sample is a subset of the population being studied. It represents the larger population and is used to draw inferences about that population. 55 is the sample subset for this analysis. SAMPLE TECHNIQUES: There are several different types and ways of choosing a sample from a population, from simple to complex. 1. Non- Probability sampling: Non-probability sampling is a sampling technique where the samples are gathered in a process that does not give all the individuals in the population equal chances of being selected. 2. Probability sampling: Probability sampling is a sampling technique where the samples are gathered in a process that gives all the individuals in the population equal chances of being selected. a. Simple Random sampling: The simple random sample is the basic sampling method assumed in statistical methods and computations. To collect a simple random sample, each unit of the target population is assigned a number. A set of random numbers is then generated and the units having those numbers are included in the sample. b. Systematic sampling: In a systematic sample, the elements of the population are put into a list and then every kth element in the list is chosen (systematically) for inclusion in the sample. c. Stratified sampling: A stratified sample is a sampling technique in which the researcher divided the entire target population into different subgroups, or strata, and then randomly selects the final subjects proportionally from the different strata. This type of sampling is used when the researcher wants to highlight specific subgroups within the population. d. Cluster sampling: Cluster sampling may be used when it is either impossible or impractical to compile an exhaustive list of the elements that make up the target population. Usually, however, the population elements are already grouped into subpopulations and lists of those subpopulations already exist or can be created. e. Multi stage sampling: Complex form of cluster sampling in which two or more levels of units are embedded one in the other. SAMPLE DESIGN: METHODS: Research data may be collected in various ways. Some of these methods depend on the methodology and the theoretical assumptions used in the research. There is a tendency for researchers in the functionalist, positivist paradigm to collect hard objective numbers. We have used questionnaire to collect the data. QUESTONNAIR:
