    Variation in Population Sampling

    Can you help me with some True / False questions on statistics? I think I am reading too much into the question for True / False.

    *Variation in the population has little if any effect on the amount of sampling that will be experienced?

    *Parameters are numbers that can be used to describe characteristics of population?

    *Values in a basic frequency tables are directly affected by the size of the sample?

    *The most common measure of the center value of a set of data is the sample mean?

    *The mean and the median are possible point estimators but the mode is not?

    *Because population parameter values are usually known, point estimates are seldowm used to measure them?

    *Two fair coins are tossed at the same time. The probability that both show heads is 0.5?

    Hi,

    Please see response to your posting as follows.

    *Variation in the population has little if any effect on the amount of sampling that will be experienced?
    --> False: Variation in the population affects amount of sampling. More the variation in the population larger sample size is required to achieve desired confidence level. Also, the samples drawn from a polulation with larger variation tend have difference in variance whereas population with smaller variance would tend to have homogenous samples in terms of variance.

    *Parameters are numbers that can be used to ...
