Trends in prevalence of HIV, syphilis, hepatitis C, hepatitis B, and sexual risk behavior among men who have sex with men: results of 3 consecutive respondentdriven sampling surveys in Beijing, 2004 through 2006. 1 Introduction to RespondentDriven Sampling. RespondentDriven Sampling (RDS, introduced by Heckathorn 1997, also 2002, 2007, see also Salganik and Heckathorn, 2004, Volz and Heckathorn 2008) is an approach to sampling design and inference in hardtoreach populations.
Respondentdriven sampling (RDS) is a recently developed method used to sample hidden and hard to reach populations such as injecting drug users, commercial sex RespondentDriven Sampling: A New Approach to the Study of Hidden Populations DOUGLAS D. HECKATHORN, University of Connecticut A population is" hidden" when no sampling frame exists and public acknowledgment of membership in What is Respondent Driven Sampling?
Respondentdriven sampling (RDS), combines" snowball sampling" with a mathematical model that weights the sample to compensate for the fact that the sample was collected in a nonrandom way. Respondentdriven sampling is both appropriate and useful for JohnJayRECs evaluation of Cure Violence. It provides a method of sampling a population thatwhile perhaps not hiddenis difficult to recruit for research studies.
Respondent Driven Sampling Blog has been setup for researchers using respondent driven sampling methods for their research projects. To create a platform to share their experience or needs to setup a research surveillance site and what systems to put in p 2 Abstract Respondent driven sampling (RDS) is a network sampling technique typically employed for hardtoreach populations (e.
g. drug users, men who have sex with men, people with HIV). Assessing respondentdriven sampling Sharad Goela, 1 and Matthew J. Salganikb, 1 aMicroeconomics and Social Systems, Yahoo!

RDS is based on the theory that bias in recruitment is overcome after recruitment proceeds through a sufficiently large number of waves.
