Best Answer

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.

Why are interest groups sometime called pressure groups or special interest?

Generally, because they represent a specific segment of the overall population. Not everyone is handicapped, so an interest group representing them would be a "special" interest group because bills/policies affecting them would not affect the general population, per se.
