In this assignment, you will be searching for where sampling has been used in a news article within the past four weeks. You will want to choose a source that is supposed to have real journalism, not satirical journalism (such as The Onion). After identifying an article, you will answer questions about the sampling.Identifying the ArticleTitle of the article: URL (website address) of the article: Date the article was posted (must be within the past four weeks): If there is more than one sample in your article, which sample are you reporting on? (Write “N/A” if your article only has one sample.) Brief description of statistics studied in the article:Edit Insert Formats Note: If you’re having a difficult time finding an article, you can likely go to the Politics tab of any news website and search for a “poll” or a “survey” and you will find a news article that involves sampling.Identifying the SampleDescribe an individual subject for which data is collected (US Citizen, Dog, Scientist, Adult, Child, etc.): What is the sample size? Describe the make-up of the sample (combine the sample size and an individual subject to describe the sample): Describe the make-up of the population: Note: The sample should be representative of the population. They should both consist of the same subjects. They should both have proportional representation of any demographics/strata found within them. For example, if your entire sample consists of people with a given disease, then the population should all have that disease too. If you can’t identify the subjects, sample, and population then your article may not be fitting for this assignment.Sampling TechniqueWhat sampling technique was used (random, stratified, cluster, voluntary, etc.)? Describe the process used for determining the sample:Edit Insert Formats Discuss whether there may be a bias due to the sampling technique used.Edit Insert Formats VariablesIdentify up to three demographic (age, gender, race, income level, location, etc.) variables and classify them as either Qualitative or Quantitative.
