Sampling error

Description

Sampling error is a measure of the variability that occurs by chance because a sample, rather than the entire population, is surveyed. The level of sampling error for any given estimate depends on the number of sampled units, the variability of the estimate, and the sample size. Due to the random nature of the sample selection the error differs for different samples.
