What type of sample is this?



Week 4: Exam Prep Questions Part 1: Multiple Choice/True or False, choose the best answer 1.) Which of the following is an example of non-sampling errors?  A.) Errors that arise when responses are not obtained from some  members of the sample  B.) Errors that arise from the recording of incorrect responses  C.)

Bar graphs are more difficult to create B.) Bar graphs show frequency or counts for quantitative data (aka  numbers) and histograms show categorical data (like gender) C.) Bar graphs show frequency or counts for categorical data (like  gender) and histograms show quantitative data (aka numbers) D.) There is no difference between bar graphs and histograms 6.) Even if you use proper random sampling (such as Simple Random  Sampling) and gather a large enough people for the sample, you will likely  still have some sampling error between the sample and the actual  population.
