### What is data and sample?

Data is commonly referred to the quantitative attributes of a

result, the information is derived. Sometimes we refer to Raw Data
which is unprocessed in nature which can mean a collection of
numbers or characters that collect information and then convert
from quantities to symbols.
Sample, in statistics can mean a subset of a population.
Population can be huge, so the sample can represent just a

### What does sample mean for math?

Suppose you have a population for which you want to measure some
particular attribute. It may not be feasible or sensible to collect
the information from each and every member of the population. In
that case you can take a subset of members from the population -
called a sample - and collect the relevant information for them.
Provided that the sample meets certain statistical conditions, the
measurements made for the sample will be good approximations for
the characteristics of the whole...

###### Asked in Statistics, Probability, The Difference Between, Surveys

### What is the difference between population survey and sample survey?

A population survey, better known as a census, entails the
collection of each unit in the population. In sample survey
information is collected from a subset of the population. The
subset, or sample, needs to be selected carefully so that it is
representative of the whole population and, if that requirement is
met, statistics based on the sample are good estimators for the
corresponding population parameters.
