Unbiased Sampling Techniques – random, systematic, stratified, and cluster sampling.

To obtain samples that are unbiased—i.e., that give each subject in the population an equally likely chance of being selected—statisticians use four basic methods of sampling: random, systematic, stratified, and cluster sampling.

Difference between Descriptive and Inferential Statistics –Statistics for Machine Learning

To gain knowledge about seemingly haphazard situations, statisticians collect information for variables, which describe the situation. But before we differentiate between Descriptive and Inferential Statistics, Lets define common terms in statistics. Common Terms in Statistics A variable is a characteristic or attribute that can assume different values. Data are the values (measurements or observations) that the variables can assume. Variables […]
