    Respected Madam,
    Thank you very much for your kind reply. I am from India and my research topic is Role of Line Managers, Top Manager and External HR service providers in Management of Human Resources. I am also helping one of my coschloar to calcuate sample size out of approximately 1000 mutual fund schemes provided by 46 fund houses for the past ten years. There is no uniformity regarding starting of different schemes.
    My first question is how to do sampling in finacial research? Most of the research methodology books cite marketing or behavioural science examples. Do you have a reference with respect to finance. Thank you very much for your kind reply.
    With warm regards
    Yours sincerely,
    Shahid Mushtaq

    Dear Shahid
    you can put this in Google Books sampling methodology in finance and you can find almost 778 books that will help you alot or atleast give you an idea to play. What i can suggest you is to split the funds group according to their type and after that you can get sample from them. Actually I dont know the objective of your study and i would not be confident until i know what you actually want to do. may be the date of induction of various funds is not important at the stage of sampling or it may be very important. 2nd evaluation of fund performance is also a litle bit vague because from what angle you are trying to evaluate teh funds either from risk side or return side or price wise or their strategies wise or their no of subscribers wise..?

    There is not a single way to sample size calculation and ussually you need some inofrmation (numbers) to enter into the formula and use a stats method to calculate. i suggest that you speak to a statistician about this as they can do it simply.

    Dear Mzikazi Nduna,
    I think that your suggestion to Shahis is very good. When we have a lot of experimental dates, the help of a statistician is very important.
