Glossary of Education
- A population is, generally, a collection of individuals. There can be a population at any level: the classroom population, the town population, the ethnic group population, the country's population, or the world's population. An imperative process in any statistical analysis is the selection of the population to be studied. Most studies will not measure the whole population--rather a sample of the population is used to draw conclusions about the entire group.
