Stratified sample in practice


New Member
Hi dears,

In practice, how do you draw a stratified sample with several stratification variables? So far, I am using Excel and it takes a lot of time. Do you use a specific software?

Thank you in advance!

1) assign random number to each row (rand(0,1) in excel?)
2) sort by stratification variable(s) then random number.
3) take first few (not sure how many, just depends) from each stratum, after sort.

good luck dears.
