Simple random sampling is an example of probability sampling where the chance of inclusion is equal for all elements in the target population. The achievement of a random sample requires not only a random sampling process, but also a 100% response rate. Since in practice, the latter is usually not achievable there is always some bias, however big or small it may be, in “random sampling”.
