Abstract: Respondent-Driven Sampling is type of link-tracing network sampling used to study hard-to-reach populations.  Beginning with a convenience sample, each person sampled is given 2-3 uniquely identified coupons to distribute to other members of the target population, making them eligible for enrollment in the study.  This is effective at collecting large diverse samples from my populations.
