Which of the following data sets
would be suitable to determine the total percentage of absences in a school?
Population and statistics includes
all members of a defined group, that are being studied. A sample will be a part of that
population. So if we wanna know the total
percentage of absences in a school, if we just took the sample, we may take a sample
of a student who misses a lot of school. But in general, over 98 percent of
the students may have perfect cot- perfect attendance, but the one student that we
took a sample of or the- a few maybe that we took a sample of may not go to school
So the better dataset to choose
would be the mass population. This would give us a better total
percentage of the absences in a school than just a sample.
