There are lots of sampling design which is determined for sample survey in various fields. Especially, it is important problem for clinical data because basic characteristic variables by group which consist of experiment group and control group in population should be reflect to sample. Therefore, frequencies, center scales and dispersion scales of variables by group in population should be similar in sample. But usual sampling design is very complicate so it is difficult to use in practice for researcher. In this paper, we consider the sampling method using simulation. We applied the proposed method to colon cancer data from a hospital. We compare basic characteristic variables between population and sample with mean, frequency and statistic hypothesis test.
