05. 95. This can be interpreted as follows: if the sample selection and the subsequent computation of the estimator are repeated a large number of times, on average in 95 out of the 100 cases the confidence interval will contain the true population value. To say it differently: in 5% of the cases, the statement that the confidence interval contains the true population parameter is wrong. So in 1 out of 20 cases, the researcher will draw the wrong conclusion. If the estimator has an approximate normal distribution, the 95% confidence interval is equal to ðtÀ1:96 Â SðtÞ;t þ 1:96 Â SðtÞÞ: ð2:35Þ Researchers are free in their choice of the confidence level.

Finally, adding 1 results in an integer in the range from 1 to N. An example illustrates this approach. The district of Mudwater in Samplonia has 255 inhabitants. Random integers in the range from 1 to 255 are needed to select a sample of persons from this district. A hand calculator is used to generate a value from [0, 1). 638. 69 and truncation results in 162. Adding 1 gives the random integer 163. 2). Information is obtained only about the sampled elements. This information must be used to say something about the population as whole.

Likewise, pkl is called the second-order inclusion probability of elements k and l. Suppose a population consists of four elements: U ¼ {1, 2, 3, 4}. 7 A roulette: a sample with replacement. Reprinted by permission of Imre Kortbeek. There are some situations in practice where sampling with replacement is preferred. This is the case for samples selected with unequal probabilities. 3. A sample with replacement can also be represented by a sequence of indicators a ¼ (a1, a2, . , aN). But now every indicator ak can assume the values 0, 1, 2, .
