STAT 210 Lecture 4 Sampling September 1 2017 Example to think about Of interest is to determine the proportion of all public buildings in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania that have central air conditioning What is the population of interest What is the parameter of interest Of interest is to determine the proportion of all public buildings in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania that have central air conditioning What is the population of interest A All buildings B All public buildings C All public buildings in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania D All public buildings in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania with central air conditioning Of interest is to determine the proportion of all public buildings in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania that have central air conditioning What is the population of interest All public buildings in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania What is the parameter of interest Of interest is to determine the proportion of all public buildings in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania that have central air conditioning What is the population of interest All public buildings in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania What is the parameter of interest The proportion of all public buildings in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania that have central air conditioning Test 1 Friday September 8 Questions from 1 00 to 1 10 Test from 1 10 to 1 50 papers due at 1 50 Covers chapters 1 and 2 pages 1 42 Combination of multiple choice questions and a few written questions Practice tests posted on Blackboard Practice Problems Pages 38 through 42 Relevant problems II 2 II 6 Recommended problems II 2 II 5 and II 6 Additional Reading and Examples Pages 26 through 29 Top Hat Sampling Procedures We select a sample of the population and only measure or contact the subjects in the sample Representative Sample The sample should be as representative of the population as possible meaning that the characteristics of the sample should mimic the characteristics of the population Bias Bias exists when some subjects or individuals are systematically favored over others A sample which is representative of the population should be free of bias If the sample is not representative then the results will be biased in favor of the responses of those which are overrepresented Selection Bias Selection bias occurs when one or more types of subjects are systematically excluded from the sample Nonresponse Bias When an individual randomly chosen to be a part of the sample cannot be contacted or fails or refuses to respond then we have a nonresponse bias Response Bias When respondents give inaccurate information or if the interviewer influences the subject to respond in a certain way due to the way the questions are phrased this is response bias Haphazard Samples A haphazard sample involves selecting a sample by some convenient mechanism that does not involve randomization A mall survey in which questionnaires are distributed to people as they walk through the mall or a campus survey in which students are questioned as they walk across campus are two examples of haphazard samples Volunteer Response Sample A volunteer response sample exists when subjects volunteer to be part of the study Examples include telephone call in polls internet surveys newspaper surveys call in talk show surveys etc The problem with volunteer response samples is that often those who choose to respond often have strong opinions most often negative opinions and hence volunteer response samples over represent those with strong opinions Bias Haphazard and volunteer response samples are particularly prone to bias particularly nonresponse bias Random Samples Samples in which the subjects are chosen randomly to be in the sample are often representative of the population and are for the most part free of bias When each subject of the population has a positive and equal probability of being selected for the sample then we are using a probability sampling design to select our sample This will reduce or eliminate bias Simple Random Sampling With simple random sampling we make a list of all possible individuals in the population and randomly choose n of the subjects in such a way that every set of n subjects has an equal chance of being selected for the sample This procedure is impartial meaning the interviewer has no discretion as to whom is to be included in the sample Simple Random Sampling 1 Label the individuals in the population from 1 to N Examples 1 N 8 Label 1 2 3 8 2 N 80 Label 01 02 03 79 80 3 N 636 Label 001 002 003 635 636 4 N 2198 Label 0001 0002 0003 2197 2198 Simple Random Sampling 1 Label the individuals in the population from 1 to N 2 Use a Table of Random Digits like on page 337 to randomly select a sample of n numbers between 1 and N These numbers correspond to the individuals who are selected to be in the sample Table
