The title of my PhD research is "The effect of Technology Transfer on competitive advantage in Omani oil and gas industry". My research is a quantitative research and I'm going to use Structural equation modeling (SEM). The unit of analysis is the industry level.
This study focuses on the Omani oil and gas industry, thus the population includes members in managerial level who have worked with the Omani oil and gas companies.
The total number of employees working at the managerial level was 2640. A sample size (n = 260) will be randomly selected from the population (N=2640).
My question: in the case of using the "industry" as the unit of analysis, is it require to mention the name and number of oil companies which the sample has been selected from it?
