### What is true of a random sample?

Every member in the population has the same probability of being in the sample.Or, equivalently, every set of the given sample size has the same probability of being selected.

### What is a kick sampling?

kicking around on the bottom of a stream to collect invertebrates or other small water living animals to check the condition of the stream.

### What is sampling bias?

Sampling bias occurs when the sampling frame does not reflect the characteristics of the population which is being tested. Biased samples can result from problems with either the sampling technique or the data-collection method. Essentially, the group does not reflect the population which is supposed to be represented in the given survey or test. For example: If the question being asked in a survey was "do American's prefer Coca-Cola or Pepsi?" and all people asked… Read More

### What sentence is a true statement Is a sample a subset of the population or Is a population a subset of the sample?

A sample is a subset of the population.

### What is small sample size?

One is a small sample size, but that's just my answer, you might want to ask more people.

### Can the variance of a sample be larger than the sample mean?

Yes, Mean is given by, E(X) sum of samples / no. of samples. Variance is Var.(X) = E(X^2) - [E(X)]^2. It is the 1st term which makes the variation of variance independent of mean. In other words, Variance gives a measure of how far the samples are spread out.

### What is sample taken without bias?

When a p-n junction is taken without a bias, it forms a PHOTO VOLTAIC CELL.

### Why is 2kg sample of lead denser than 10kg sample of iron?

Density is a weight per unit volume calculation. There could be different alloys or casting methods with subtle differences in density, or temperature variations in expansion and density. However: Every cubic centimeter of lead weighs 11.34 grams. Every cubic centimeter of iron weighs 7.86 grams. Thus, the density of lead (11.34 g/cc) is greater than iron (7.86 g/cc). This is independent of the actual weight and volume of the sample.

### True or False A sampling distribution is a probability distribution for a statistic?

The statement is true that a sampling distribution is a probability distribution for a statistic.

### What about accidental sampling?

Accidental sampling is a type of nonprobability sampling which involves the sample being drawn from that part of the population which is close to hand. That is, a sample population selected because it is readily available and convenient. The researcher using such a sample cannot scientifically make generalizations about the total population from this sample because it would not be representative enough. For example, if the interviewer was to conduct such a survey at a… Read More

### Why is it so important to have a representative sample?

If the sample is not representative of the population, then the characteristics of the sample are not the characteristics of the population. Example: If I want to estimate the percentage of the population that are men, and my sample is the school's football team, my estimate would be that 100% of the population is comprised of men. What went wrong with my survey ? Simple. The football team is not a representative sample of the… Read More

### What does the VCM represent in a blood sample?

There isn't usually a VCM quantity but there is an MCV quantity. MCV (mean corpuscular volume) represents the average volume of a red blood cell.

### Which one is called non probability sampling a. cluster sampling b.quota sampling c. systematic sampling d. stratified sampling?

Answer is Quota sampling.Its one of the method of non-probability sampling.

### What is the difference between a sample and sampling?

sample is a noun and sampling is TO sample(verb)

### What a sample is?

It is a subset of the population. That is, a subset of the units which are being studied.

### What is a sample?

A sample is a small part of anything or one of a number, intended to show the quality, style, or nature of the whole; specimen. So, for instance, when you go to an ice cream shop and they give you a taste spoon with one flavor you want to try, that is a sample. It is a small portion designed to help you decide if you want more of it.

### How to reduce sampling error?

The only way to get rid of sampling error is to use the entire population under study. This is usually impossible, so the next best thing is to use large samples and good sampling methods.

### Advantages of simple random sampling?

It is cheap, simple easily applied to a small population ensures bias is not introduced; also it can improve our knowledge and help solving problems

### True or false the sample mean is a point of estimate of the population mean?

Nearly true. It is a point estimate, not point of estimate.

### In an SRS of size n what is true about the sampling distributions of p when the sample size n increases?

As n increases the sampling distribution of pË† (p hat) becomes approximately normal.

### What is sampling and sampling theory?

Sampling is done to ascertain the grade of mineral and metal values that vary in proportion from one place to another.

### Why is a large sample better than a small sample?

A large sample will reduce the effects of random variations.

### What is the difference between a biased sample and a random sample?

a biased sample is chosen because it is liked more (looks prettier, more popular etc.) and a random one has no prefeerence hope i helped!!!! :p

### Is cluster sampling is a type of stratified random sampling?

No. Cluster sampling and stratifed random sampling are different, though often confused. (They may, however, be used in conjunction in some sampling designs.) Both are types of random sampling. STRATIFIED sampling involves identifying a variable that will break up your population into separate homogeneous groups (homogeneous in terms of the variable you are interested in). For example, suppose you want to know about the attitudes of kids about their future. Perhaps you have reason to… Read More

### What are the advantages of self selected sample?

The respondents actually cared enough one way or another to participate.

### What are the disadvantages of simple random sampling?

a simple random sampling is very difficult to conduct if the size of the population being studied is large. Moreover , it needs a lot of time and money. - S

### Advantages and disadvantages of random sampling?

Advantage -- Less effort, cost, work Disadvantage -- Less accuracy, information, difficulty of establishing true 'randomness" in some samplings.

### How can sampling error be reduced?

The best way to reduce sampling error is to use random sampling in the study. This means selecting the population to study through a random process. This will ensure that each member of the population under study has an equal chance of being selected.

### What is a sample size?

When something is a sample size, that means it is smaller than the size that is normally available for purchase. Sample size products are usually enough to let you try something before you buy it.

### What is a convenience sample?

a sample that is conveniant. Such as voting. the sample is conveniant because it elects leaders

### What is a sample frame?

A list of all eligable sampling units from which the sample can be drawn (eg telephone directories, electronic registers, company lists, club membership lists etc)

### What is a random sample?

A random sample is a selection from the population of interest where each item (persons, households, widgets, etc.) has an equal chance of being selected. The idea being that measuring a random sample of sufficient size will accurately (within a margin of error) reflect the "true" value that exists in the population - while at the same time reducing your study to a manageable size. A random sample is integral in good survey design to… Read More

### What is a self-selected sample?

It is a sample in which the respondent decides whether or not to participate. A typical situation would be when a pile of questionnaires is left for people to fill in - if they like. Only those so inclined will do so.

### What is a sampling variability?

A sampling variability is the tendency of the same statistic computed from a number of random samples drawn from the same population to differ.

### What is a representative sample?

A sample that accurately reflects the characteristics of the population as a whole

### What is a experimental sample?

An experimental sample is an experiment that is just a sample of what you are looking for.

### What is a iid sampling?

This is an abbreviation for independent and identically distributed. In the mathematical analysis of samples, it is convenient to state that each data value in the sample is a iid random variable. See related link.
