Learning Statistics with Python

## Sample 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.

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).
