In statistics, it is called the 'population'. There are two types of populations: finite and infinite. A finite population can simply be counted such as the number of students in a class. An infinite population, on the other hand, cannot be counted or is very difficult to count such as the residents in a city. Statistics is all about infinite populations because we need to make conclusions about the entire population based on observations of a small sample of that population.
