3. Error DF is the sample size minus the number of treatments (or the difference between
the corrected total DF and the Model DF)

The second problem is that you generally want to make conclusions that
extrapolate beyond the population. The statistical inferences only apply to
the population your samples were obtained from. Let's say you perform an
experiment in the lab three times. All ...
Probability Sampling - Instituto de Estadísticas de Puerto Rico
... Probability sampling provides measures of sampling errors with respect to the
estimates that come from the data and we can generalize the findings of a study,
based on an inference from the sample to the frame. Some of the advantages of
probability sampling are:
• It improves an statistical program ...
Introduction to Biostatistics Some Basic Concepts
... set of observations into two equal parts such that half of
the data are before it and the other are after it.
* If n is odd, the median will be the middle of observations. It
will be the (n+1)/2 th ordered observation.
When n = 11, then the median is the 6th observation.
* If n is even, there are tw ...
In statistics, resampling is any of a variety of methods for doing one of the following: Estimating the precision of sample statistics (medians, variances, percentiles) by using subsets of available data (jackknifing) or drawing randomly with replacement from a set of data points (bootstrapping) Exchanging labels on data points when performing significance tests (permutation tests, also called exact tests, randomization tests, or re-randomization tests) Validating models by using random subsets (bootstrapping, cross validation)Common resampling techniques include bootstrapping, jackknifing and permutation tests.
