The estimation of any variable of interest such as the one considered in this study: monthly allowance and expenditure of students in the university depends on the sampling scheme used. In this research, estimation using simple random sampling and stratification sampling is considered. Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) was used for easier computation of the estimates needed. It was found that stratification sampling scheme gives a better variance and it is therefore recommended.
