sampling error


sampling error
Any difference between the true parameters of a population and a conclusion about these parameters based on a sample of the population. Sampling errors are of two kinds. The first, which is inevitable, arises from the laws of statistics and probability. The second, which is preventable, arises from inadequate or unrepresentative sampling techniques (see selection error). Compare non-sampling errors
