Sample text

If we could choose the units in our lot one at a time, at random, and with equal probability, then it would not make any difference how they were distributed in the lot. This is the classical "statistical" sampling situation, and the resulting sample is called a simple random sampled To illustrate it in a familiar context, suppose we want to select a few people at random from a larger group gathered in a room. We could assign each person a different number. Then we could write each number on a piece of paper, put them in a hat, mix them up, and draw several pieces.

Since a cross-stream sample is impossible to obtain, giving the stream a more homogeneous cross section reduces the grouping and segregation error (GSE) and the impact of incorrect delimitation. It also reduces the impact of taking an incorrect sample. 4. Choose the right sampling tool. Examine the tool and look for violations of the principle of correct sampling. The tool must be capable of taking the sample that is defined and taking it correctly. 5. Use the tool correctly. Just because a tool meets all the theoretical requirements does not mean it will operate properly under adverse conditions or that it will be used correctly by those not properly trained in its operation.

If part of the lot is inaccessible or the sampling tool cannot take the sample we have correctly defined, then getting a random sample is not possible. In the second part of the principle, we must ensure that we 3. 8 Oxidation, abrasion, and evaporation are examples of improper sample handling because the sample integrity is not preserved. Getting a representative sample is useless if the value of the property of interest changes during transport. Then it is no longer representative. Later in this chapter, we will examine these three steps in detail to understand how the principle of correct sampling can be followed or violated.
