The faculty of a college consists of 820 members. A new president has just been appointed. The president wants to get an idea of what the faculty considers the most important issues currently facing the school. She does not have time to interview all the faculty members and so decides to stratify the faculty by rank and use stratified random sampling with proportional allocation to obtain a sample of 40 faculty members. There are 205 full professors, 328 associate professors, 246 assistant professors, and 41 instructors.
a. How many faculty members of each rank should be selected for interviewing?
b. Use Table I in Appendix A to obtain the required sample. Explain your procedure in detail.
