Social Sciences - International Org/Dev/Coop / Proposal on domestic violence project in Columbia
Spanish term or phrase: determinación de muestra
The above phrase appears within a bulleted list of proposed actions within the proposal. The full bullet is:

'determinación de muestra de mujeres y jóvenes violentadas para propiciar una atención integral'

Any ideas about the whole sentence. Is is something about 'demonstrable assessment'?

Many thanks, Lilly
