Full solutions for Calculus, | 5th Edition
A flaw in the design of a sampling process that systematically causes the sample to differ from the population with respect to the statistic being measured. Undercoverage bias results when the sample systematically excludes one or more segments of the population. Voluntary response bias results when a sample consists only of those who volunteer their responses. Response bias results when the sampling design intentionally or unintentionally influences the responses
