All reported margins of sampling error
include computed design effects for weighting.
The margin of sampling error
is plus or minus four percentage points for the full sample as well as the sample of 855 registered voters.
The link discharge sampling error
was less than 10 percent for all run sets, showing minimal variability across all runs, and tended to stabilize around 2 percent after more runs.
In a well-designed statistical sample, the sampling error
is as small as we need it to be.
The sampling error
probability refers to a statistical property of data underlying evidence offered to prove a relevant fact, such as the connection between the defendant's act and the plaintiff's harm.
Four tests were selected to evaluate effects of sampling error
on the feasibility of detecting density dependence in natural populations.
Also, the values for sampling error
variance are reported, along with the lower boundary of credibility values, and the unexplained variance.
If probability samples are used, estimates of sampling error
can be made from the sample.
Selected estimates of sampling errors
are given in A.
However, sampling errors
also could have occurred when a portion was taken for analysis or when the samples were collected at the foundry.
This paper discusses the impact of sampling error
on the construction of confidence intervals around effect sizes.
