To produce a stratified sample, however, something must already be known about the groups which make up the total population and their proportions. For instance, returning to our requirement to find what percentage of patients had houses, assume that we know that patients are made up of 50 per cent male - adult, 30 per cent female - adult and 20 per cent children. Thus we already know that 20 per cent of our population will not 'have' houses (within our definition), so we pick a sample from the male and female adult population to find what percentage of those left have houses taking the same proportions from each group (eg 50 male and 30 female adults).
