Kyle Gring 1/30/2009 Sta/ 215 Homework Assignment #1 1. A. If I were to measure the model years of the cars driven by five of my closest friends’ I would choose a census. The reason I chose to use a census is because I had a specific group of interest in mind and had intend to comprise the population of that group as a whole. I know who my five closest friends are and it is very easy to get the whole population for that entire group, so a census would fit perfectly. The reason a sample doesn’t work in this example is because samples only take the measurement of a smaller group of interest. This wouldn’t work in this situation because it was only on my five closest friends and its pointless to take a smaller sample of that population. B. If I were to measure the model years of the cars driven by each student in my statistic class, I would choose a census. The reason I chose to use a census is because I had a specific group of interest in mind, which was my stats. class, and had intended to comprise the population as a whole. It would not be difficult to collect data from everyone in my stats. class so I could complete my information of model years of their cars. Sampling the students in my class is not a feasible option to me because it would leave out some data and only get a small proportion of the population, which is not what I am looking for in this situation.
