Which type of sampling is used when we want to make statistical inferences?a.Probability sampling is based on random selection, each case has a chance of being selected and those chances are independent of the chances of selecting another and cannot involve physical mixing or human judgmentb.It differs because cases are randomly selected on purpose and in nonprobability they are selected for a purposec.The goal of probability sampling is to make inferences from a sample to a populationd.Nonprobability sampling is used for practical reasons when cases are selected to advance theoretical understanding e.For statistical inference probability sampling is used.3.Know the difference between a population, a target population, a sampling frame, and a sample. a.Population: the total membership of a defined class of people, objects or eventsb.Target population: population to which you wish to generalize sample results c.Sampling frame: a list or rule that provides the basis for sampling 4.Know the reasons for using stratified random sampling.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
