The population of interest is the population you are trying to draw an inference about from the collected data sets. For example if you are interested in the average height of a college student on the east coast then the population of interest would be all college students on the east coast. If you are trying to find out the compressive strength of a certain concrete mixture then the population of interest is all types of concrete of this type.
