A sample from the population does not have to share the same characteristics as the
population
a) True
b) False
Answer is FALSE
Sampling is concerned with the selection of a subset of individuals from within a
statistical population to estimate characteristics of the whole population. Each observation
measures one or more properties like weight, location, or color of observable bodies
distinguished as independent objects or individuals.
In a simple random sample of a given size, all such subsets of the frame are given an
equal probability. Furthermore, any given pair of elements has the same chance of selection as
any other such pair. This minimizes bias and simplifies analysis of results. In particular, the
variance between individual results within the sample is a good indicator of variance in the
overall population, which makes it relatively easy to estimate the accuracy of results.
