Studies should be designed to discover what we want to know about the variables of interest for individuals in the ________.
________ does not imply causation.
A sample that produces data that is not representative because of the systematic under- or over-estimations of the values of the variable of interest is called _____.
_______ may result from either a poor sampling plan or from poor design for evaluation the variable of interest.
________ is where individuals have offered to participate in the study.
A(n) ________ is almost guaranteed to be biased because participants tend to be comprised of individual who have a particularly strong opinion about and issue and are looking for an opportunity to voice it. They may also be motivated to participate out of desperation.
A(n) ________ is sometimes the only ethical way to obtain a sample, example medical studies.

The safest way to avoid bias is to use _______ sampling.
______ sampling is when individuals are sampled completely at random, and without replacement, then each individual is equally likely to be selected.
simple random sample (SRS)
Obtain a student directory with email addresses of all the university's students, and send your music poll to a randomized subset is an example of ________.
simple random sample (SRS)
In an SRS (simple random sample), suppose only 40% of people sent back their votes. This study potentially has bias from Non Response and __________.
A simple random sample is the _______ way to base a selection on randomness.
A(n) ______ is the simplest probability sampling plan, it is equivalent to selecting random names out of a hat, where each individual has the same chance of being selected.
simple random sample (SRS)
_______ sampling is sampling technique is used when our population is naturally divided into groups. This technique includes some of the groups
in their entirety
In ________ sampling, we take a random sample of groups (or sub-populations), and use all the individuals within the selected clusters as our sample.
In order to get a sample of high-school seniors from a certain city, you choose 3 high schools at random from among all the high schools in that city, and use all the high school seniors in the three selected high schools as your sample, this is an example of _______ sampling
________ sampling is used when our population is naturally divided into groups. This technique ensures that each of the some of the groups is equally represented..
All the students in a certain college are divided by gender or by year in college; all the registered voters in a certain city are divided by race are examples of ______.
In _______ sampling, we choose a simple random sample from each group, and our sample consists of all these simple random samples put together.
In order to get a random sample of high-school seniors from a certain city, we choose a random sample of 25 seniors from each of the high schools in that city. Our sample consists of all these samples put together. This is called a(n) ______ sample.
In ______ sampling, we take a random sample of groups, and include every individual from those groups.
In ______ sampling, we take a simple random sample (SRS) of every group.
______ sampling is a complex form of cluster sampling.
_______ refers to individuals who do not go along with the researchers' intention to include them in a study.
If there are too many nonrespondents, and they are different from respondents in an important way, the sample may have _____.
_______ sampling makes the sampling process more manageable by working down from a large population to successively smaller groups within the population, taking advantage of stratifying or clustering along the way, and often finishes up with either a cluster sample or a simple random sample.
A _______ sampling plan (such as a simple random sample, cluster, or stratified sampling) will result in a nonbiased sample, which can be safely used to make inferences
The entire group of individuals to be studied is called a ______.
A(n) _____ is a person/object that is a member of the population to be studied.
