Sampling Procedures

Out of 9,000 questionnaires, 5,369 or 60 percent were returned. Out of these 5,369, 3,073 were randomly selected. To ensure that Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Native Americans, Eskimos and Aleuts were represented, any deacons in the 5,369 returns found to be of these cultures were included. Hence, within the random sample, there's a selected sample of cultures other than white Anglos.
