The sampling of general populations of individuals or households for survey research is well described. However, much of the focus of pediatric nursing research is on special or rare populations. This article presents techniques that may be used to locate rare populations for pediatric nursing research. Additionally, development and analysis of one technique used to locate a sample frame for a survey of time use of chronically ill school-age children is discussed.
