Learning Statistics with Python

Sample vs PopulationSample vs Population

In this course, we will work with Seaborn visualization and manipulate datasets using pandas and NumPy. Therefore, to succed in this course, I strongly recommend taking the following courses:

Understanding statistics will expand your horizons and allow you to recognize statistical patterns and work with data. Let's begin with the fundamental definitions: sample and population.

Sample vs Population

Population

The population is a set of identical items in our study of interest.

Sample

A sample is a subset of the population which is intended to capture the characteristics of the population (however, it might not always accurately reflect characteristics of the population due to its quality).
