Example text

These two figures look different although they have the same number of intervals and the intervals are of the same size. The starting points of the first interval cause the difference in appearance. 8 shows the effect of using 10 intervals instead of 11. 5 are used. 8 use the same data but give different impressions about the data. We see that the shapes of the histo­ grams are dissimilar because of the decisions we made; however, the histo­ grams say basically the same thing about the distribution of the sample data even though their shapes are different.

Telephone surveys may provide another example of failure of the sam­ pling frame to include all members of the target population. If the target population is all the resident households in a geographical area, a survey conducted using the telephone will miss a portion of the resident house­ holds. Even though more than 90 percent of the households in the United States have telephones, the percentage varies with race and socioeconomic status. The telephone directory was used frequently in the past as the sampling frame, but it excluded households without telephones as well as households with unlisted numbers.

We now are going to use two-digit numbers from the beginning of the third row. The set of 10 numbers are the following: 24, 04, 13, 38, 00, 09, 97(47), 63(13), 67(17), 85(35). The value 50 was subtracted from numbers greater than 49 and the values in parentheses are the result of the subtraction and they indicate which students are to be selected. Because the fourteenth student is selected twice, that is, the number 13 appears twice, additional numbers have to be selected until there are 10 distinct values.
