Question

1a.) Stratified Random Sampling involves:

a. Dividing the population into overlapping groups

b. Taking a random sampling of a percentage of the pre-chosen groups (usually 10% of total groups)

c. Choosing non-overlapping clusters (i.e. streets of a city) and collecting data from all members of the selected cluster

d. None of the above

1b.) A data set consists of the values 2, 6, 3, and 1. If we consider this a population (all the values available), the variance is

a. 12

b. 14

c. the square root of 3.5

d. the square root of 14

e. none of the above

1c.) Range of a large set of data is 12. Variance is about

a. 12

b. 3

c. the square root of 12

d. none of the above

Answer #1

1. Stratified random sampling involves dividing the population
into smaller groups on the basis of some characteristic and are
non-overlapping with each other.

Correct option: C)

2.

X | (X - 3)^2 |

2 | 1 |

6 | 9 |

3 | 0 |

1 | 4 |

Average = 3 | Sum = 14 |

Variance = 14/n = 14/4 = 3.5

Correct option: E) None of the above

3. Range is the difference between the maximum and minimum
values while variance is the average squared deviation from the
mean. Hence, there is no relation between the both.

Correct option: None of the above

Quota sampling:
Select one:
a. involves taking a stratified sample in which the number of
sampling units drawn from each stratum is in proportion to the
relative population size of that stratum
b. ensures that certain characteristics of a population sample
will be represented to the exact extent that the researcher
desires.
c. obtains units or people who are most conveniently
available.
d. selects an initial starting point by a random process, and
then selects every nth number on the...

1.
While this type of sampling is very eacy to carry out, and hence
saves time and money, it can very easily yield samples which are
non-representative of the population, unintentionally. Often, data
comes "in cycles", where the beginning and the end of each cycle is
"atypical". If the "kth" individual is picked at the beginning or
at the end of a cycle more often than a...

1. Suppose we suspected an unusual distribution of blood groups
in patients undergoing a certain surgical procedure. The data below
gives the results for 100 patient’s blood type:

hospital that performs the surgery is 30% group O, 20% group A, 40%
group B, and 10% group AB. Test at an alpha level of 0.05. Find the
test statistic.
