1. Sampling Purpose of taking a sample ? _______To do Inferential Statistics ________ It is usually impossible to measure every unit in the population because: o population is too large, o cost would be prohibitive, o too time consuming, Instead, we take a sample, or a subset, of the population. Sampling techniques are either probability based (random sampling) or nonprobability based (non-random sampling) [Black, page 221] Of the probability based sampling techniques, we will only consider simple random sampling [Black, page 222] - SRS Simple Random Sample : A sample chosen in such a way so that all samples of size n are equally likely to be selected for the sample. The sampling frame is the list of units “allegedly” comprising the population. o (The whole list below is a sampling frame) Choosing a SRS o Assign a numerical code to every member of the population. o Use randomly generated numbers [page 774] to select the n units in the sample.
Example : Pick a random sample of size 3 from the 30 stocks in the DJIA Alcoa Inc. Common Stock American Express Company  Boeing Company (The)  Bank of America Corporation  Caterpillar, Inc.  Cisco Systems, Inc.
