"The simple random sampling procedure becomes very tedious if the size of the population is large. For example, if we need to select 150 households from a list of 45,000, it is very time-consuming either to write the 45,000 names on pieces of paper and then select 150 households or to use a table of random numbers. In such cases, it is more convenient to use systematic random sampling."
