1 QM Winter 2009 Winter 2009 Exercises for Test 1 Exercises for Test 1 Chapter s 1- 4 Del Balso
2 Probability Sample Any sample that is chosen by chance. Includes Simple Random Sample (SRS) and Stratified Samples. 1. Simple Random Sample Gives each individual in the population an equal chance of being chosen.
3 Use table of random digits (handout) or computer program to choose individuals or samples. Random: every individual or sample has an equal chance of being picked. This ensures the sample is representative of the population. Therefore, we can generalize the results back to the population.
4 Choose a Simple Random Sample (SRS) Step 1. Assign a number to every individual in the population (or to every sample). Assign numbers beginning with 0 and keep going until everyone has a number. Go down columns of lists. Step 2. Use random digits to select the numbers and choose those people.
