A nonprobability purposive sampling strategy was used for this study. Attempts to conduct a random/probability sampling technique in Ghana were difficult because of the dilemma of obtaining a complete sampling list of the population, whereby everyone in the population would have an equal or known chance of being included in the sample. Given this sampling limitation, the study used purposive sampling, allowing the researcher to use his judgment when selecting cases that were both difficult and informative regarding the specific content under investigation.
