Sample text

Following Martin and Bateson (1993: 84–86), I distinguish between sampling rules (who or what is observed) and recording rules (whether behavior is recorded continuously or instantaneously). Any behavior measurement is a combination of a sampling rule and a recording rule. 1 I will briefly characterize the logic behind using different sampling rules and then turn to a much more detailed consideration of recording rules reflecting dominant ethnographic interest and research. I do not discuss ad libitum sampling, a kind of behavior sampling, which involves 1 the unsystematic recording of “interesting” behaviors and is only useful for initial investigation or, perhaps, rare but important events.
