### What is the difference between Sampling error and non sampling error?

In stats, a sampling error is simply one that comes from looking
at a sample of the population in question and not the entire
population. That is where the name comes from. But there are other
kinds of stats errors. In contrast, non sampling error refers to
ANY other kind of error that does NOT come from looking at the
sample instead of the population. One example you may want to know
about of a non sampling error is a systematic error. OR Sampling
Error: There may be inaccuracy in the information collected during
the sample survey, this inaccuracy may be termed as Sampling error.
Sampling error = Frame error + Chance error + Response error.

### What would a sampling error of zero mean?

The sampling error is the error one gets from observing a sample
instead of the whole population. The bigger it is, the less faith
you should have that your sample represents the true value in the
population. If it is zero, your sample is VERY representative of
the population and you can trust that your result is true of the
population.
