Population and SamplePopulation is the area in which you are trying to get information from. Sample is a section of your population that you are actually going to survey. It is important to have a sample that will represent your entire population in order to minimize biases. For example:

You want in know how American citizens feel about the war in Iraq. Your population: The United States Your sample: 500 citizens selected randomly from each state.

Since the answers all over the US would greatly vary, it is important to have everyone in the population represented in your sample. This is usually done through random sampling, which assumes no biases seeing as the subjects were selected at random.

A population includes all members from a specified group, all possible outcomes or measurements that are of interest.

A population includes all members from a specified group, all possible outcomes or measurements that are of interest. And a sample consists of some observations drawn from the population, so a part or a subset of the population.

'Population; is the total of all the data to be considered. 'Sample' is a small part of the data, collected in order to make an estimate for the whole population.

NB Some populations are so large or remote , it is impossible to collect all ther data.

The population is the number of people in a particular place. example of how many people are living in Pakistan.

The sample is a subset of the population it is in a smaller number and is chosen randomly.

Population:- population is the total number of people and things which we studied. It refer to an entire group of people,objects which is being studied

For example

We studied all school in Pakistan

Sample:- Sample is the subset of population which is also being studied. it is a small part taken from population to studied.

For example we take any province and then study the school of that province as a sample
