The Consumer Bankruptcy Project of 2001 (Warren and Tyagi, 2003; data collection is described on pages 181–188) surveyed 2220 households who filed for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, with the goal of studying why families file for bankruptcy. Questionnaires were given to debtors attending the mandatory meeting with the bankruptcy trustee assigned to their case in the five districts selected by the investigators for the study (these districts included the cities of Nashville, Chicago, Dallas, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles) on specified target dates. Additional samples were taken from two rural districts in Tennessee and Iowa. Quota sampling was used in each district, with the goal of collecting 250 questionnaires from each district that had the same proportions of Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies as were filed in the district. Discuss the relative merits and disadvantages of using quota sampling for this study.
