QNT 273 Week 2 DQ 2
A population is all subjects (human or animal) that are being studied. A sample is a group of subjects selected from a population. A population would be every Basketball player in the NBA. A sample would be the Portland Trailblazers (Go Blazers!). You would use a sample instead of a population when the population is so large as to make it impossible to study everyone in the population, such as the entire population of the United States. You could use a sample, say, of 100 random people of different ages from each state.
