It is a sampling technique in which every nth member is taken from the population. 2. It is a form of probability distribution when all possible samples of size n are drawn repeatedly from the population. 3. It is the error used as an estimator of a population parameter. 4. It is used as estimator of a population parameter instead of the mean. 5. It is the square of standard deviation. 6. It is the sampling technique sometimes called area sampling because it is applied on a geographical basis. 7. It is the type of nonrandom sampling technique wherein a specified number of persons or certain types is included in the sample. 8. It is the nonrandom sampling technique which is used for very small sample size. 9. It is a subset or small group selected from a population, either by random or nonrandom techniques. 10. It is a selection of n elements derived from population N which is the subject of the investigation in which each sample point has an equal chance of being selected using proper sampling techniques.
