:3. A survey of the attitudes about possible construction of a nuclear power pllant in an adjacent town is to be carried out in a city of 200,000 persons in upstate New York. There is no up-to- date list of all the households in this city, and it is too expensive to construct such a list. It is expected that attitudes will be affected by the distance of a household from the proposed site of the plant. Which of the following is the best sample design for this survey?

a. Stratified, multistage cluster sampling

b. Multistage cluster sampling

c. Stratified random sampling

d. Quota sampling

e. Simple random sampling
