1

data set

a collection of data values

New cards

2

data value or datum

Each value in the data set is called a *__* or a _______

New cards

3

data

facts, figures and information collected on some characteristics of a population or sample

New cards

4

qualitative or quantitative data

Data can be classified as

New cards

5

Population

refers to the totality of objects, persons, places, things used in a particular study.

New cards

6

Sample

any subset of population or few members of a population

New cards

7

investigator

The person who plans and conducts the statistical investigation independently or with the help of others

New cards

8

respondent

The person who answers/responds to the set of questions

New cards

9

enumerator

The person who collects data by conducting an enquiry or an investigation

New cards

10

Categorical data

A type of data that is used to group information with similar characteristics, also called qualitative data

New cards

11

numerical data

A type of data that expresses information in the form of numbers, also called quantitative data

New cards

12

Nominal Scale

classifies data into mutually exclusive (non-overlapping), exhausting categories in which no order or ranking can be imposed on the data

New cards

13

Ordinal Scale

classifies data into categories that can be ranked; however, precise differences between the ranks do not exist.

New cards

14

Interval Scale

ranks data, and precise differences between units of measure do exist; however, there is no meaningful zero.

New cards

15

Rational Scale

possesses all the characteristics of an interval measurement, and there exist a true zero

New cards

16

Primary data

is collected firsthand by a researcher (organization, person, authority, agency or party etc) through experiments, surveys, questionnaires, focus groups, conducting interviews and taking (required) measurements.

New cards

17

Secondary data

is readily available (collected by someone else) and is available to the public through publications, journals and newspapers.

New cards

18

Variable

is a measure or characteristic or property of a population or sample that may have a number of different values.

New cards

19

Variable

It is the characteristic or property that is measured, controlled, or manipulated in research.

New cards

20

Constant

is a characteristic or property of a population or sample which is common to all members of the group.

New cards

21

Retrospective

cohort studies are a type of observational research in which the investigator looks back in time at archived or self-report data.

New cards

22

Observational studies

process or population is observed and disturbed as little as possible, and the quantities of interests are recorded.

New cards

23

Design of experiments

is defined as a branch of applied statistics that deals with planning, conducting, analyzing, and interpreting controlled tests to evaluate the factors that control the value of a parameter or group of parameters.

30

Probabilistic Sampling

In every element of our sample the probability of them has the same weight. EPS (Equal Probability of Sampling)

New cards

31

Stratified Sampling

a method of sampling that involves the division of a population into smaller sub-groups known as strata.

New cards

32

Random Sampling

a subset of a statistical population in which each member of the subset has an equal probability of being chosen. Meant to be an unbiased representation of a group.

New cards

33

Systematic Sampling

a type of probability sampling method in which sample members from a larger population are selected according to a random starting point but with a fixed, periodic interval

New cards

34

Cluster Sampling

a probability sampling technique where researchers divide the population into multiple groups for research. Researchers then select random groups with a simple random or systematic random sampling technique for data collection and data analysis.

New cards

35

Non-Probabilistic Sampling

also called judgment or subjective sampling. This method is convenient and economical but the inferences made based on the findings are not so reliable

New cards

36

Convenience Sampling

taken from a group of people easy to contact or to reach. For a example, standing at a mall or a grocery store and asking people to answer questions.

New cards

37

Purposive Sampling

also known as judgmental, selective, or subjective sampling, is a form of non-probability sampling in which researchers rely on their own judgement

New cards

38

Quota Sampling

a sampling methodology wherein data is collected from a homogenous group. You continue sampling for each cell until you get the desired number and then stop

New cards

39

Snowball Sampling

is a recruitment technique in which research participants are asked to assist researchers in identifying other potential subjects.

New cards

40

Probability

the likelihood or chance of an event occurring

New cards

41

E(number of ways achieving success)/S(total number)

Probability Formula

New cards

42

Experiment

used to describe any process that generates a set of data

New cards

43

Event

consists of a set of possible outcomes of a probability experiment. Can be one outcome (simple event) or more than one outcome (compound event)

New cards

44

Sample space

the set of all possible outcomes or results of a random experiment.

New cards

45

element

48

Null space

a subset of the sample space that contains no elements and is denoted by the symbol Æ. It is also called __empty space__.

New cards

49

Intersection of Events ( A ∩ B)

the event containing all elements that are common to A and B

New cards

50

1. Mutually Exclusive Events ( A ∩ B = O/ )

they have no elements in common

New cards

51

Union of Events ( A ∪ B )

containing all the elements that belong to A or to B or to both

52

Compliment of an Event (A ∩ C)’

t A with respect to S is

the set of all elements of S that are not in A and is denoted by A’
