Practice Sampling Problems This exercise gives you an opportunity to practice some of the sampling techniques described in the chapter.
The following is a list of the states in the United States (abbreviated) and their populations in 2005 to the nearest tenth of a million.
1. Number the states from 01 to 50, entering the numbers next to the abbreviated name on the list.
2. Use the random number table in Appendix E and select enough two-digit numbers to provide a sample of12 states. Write all the numbers and cross out the ones you donâ€™t use.
3. List the 12 states that make it into your random sample.
4. Now, if you have easy access to the Internet locate the Research Randomizer (http://randomizer.org/)and draw one set of 12numbers from 01 to50 from it. Then list the 12states that would make it into your random sample this time.
5. This time, take a stratified random sample of 10 states, one of which has a population of 10 million or more and nine of which have populations of less than10 million. List the states you chose. 6.How might you draw a quota sample of 10 states ,one of which has a population of 10 million or more and nine of which have populations of less than10 million?
A.Describe one way of doing this
B.describe, in your own words, the most important differences between the sampling procedures used inQuestions5and6a.
This is a random sampling chart I parentheses at least 13 numbers for you to use because the copy and paste did not space them if you would like you can use others the numbers are grouped in four at a time but only the last two numbers are used which I highlighted in yellow.
