### What is the primary characteristic of a probability sample?

In the context of a sample of size n out of a population
of N, any sample of size n has the same probability
of being selected. This is equivalent to the statement that any
member of the population has the same probability of being included
in the sample.

### What is the random sampling method?

Random sampling is a method of selecting a sample where each
member of the population has the same probability of being included
in the sample. An equivalent statement is that each subset of the
population, of the given size, has the same probability of being
selected as any other subset of that size.

### What is the definition of simple random sample?

There are two equivalent ways of defining a simple random sample
from a larger population.
One definition is that every member of the population has the
same probability of being included in the sample.
The second is that, if you generate all possible samples of the
given size from the population, then each such sample has the same
probability of being selected for use.

### What is the definition for probability sample?

A probability sample is one in which each member of the

### What are the Difference between Probabilistic sampling methods and non probabilistic sampling methods?

With a probabilistic method, each member of the population has
the same probability of being selected for the sample.
Equivalently, given a sample size, every sample of that size has
the same probability of being the sample which is selected. With
such a sample it is easier to find an unbiased estimate of common
statistical measures. None of this is true for non-probabilistic
sampling.

### What kind sampling based on probability?

Probability sampling, according to which, a member of the
population has the same probability of being included in the sample
as any other member. Equivalently, each sample of a given size has
the same probability of being chosen.
Stratified and cluster sampling are variations on this idea. In
stratified sampling, the population can be divided up into strata
such that members within each stratum are more like each other than
across strata. One example may be school pupils in different year
groups. A...

### What is the importance of probability in population?

It is usually impossible to work out exactly how large
population will behave in any given circumstance. However, it may
be possible to assign probabilities of different responses to each
member of the population and then, using the rules of probability,
calculate how the population - as a whole, or on average - is
likely to behave.

### When will natural selection favor altruism?

Altruism is basically when a member sacrifices itself for the
well being of the population. If the population that was protected
has favorable traits, they will be naturally selected for and over
generations become dominant in the population. If they weren't
protected, the population could die out.

Simple random sampling = A process of selecting subjects
in such a way that each member of the population has an equal
likelihood of being selected; you can throw all your subjects into
a hat and draw them out one by one, or assign each member a number
and choose every fifth number to be a participant.

probability that each element of the population will be included in
the sample can be specified; you have...

### What are the methods of sampling?

systematic- a member of the population is selected at random
convenience- the most-available members of the population are
chosen
self-selected- members of the population volunteer to respond to
a survey.
Note: Biased questions- Example what about a new subway
85%yes,15%no.
This question is biased because only people who ride the subway
would say yes.
