Proportionate and disproportionate samples

A proportionate sample is one in which each stratum is properly represented so that the sample drawn from it is proportional to the stratum’s share of the total population. A disproportionate sample simply means that the sample’s stratus is not proportionate to the total populations’. Disproportionate sampling is theoretically superior; however, it is less practical.
