A. Population

  • The entire group under study, which in the case of an exit poll, would be all the voters who participated in a particular election.

  • Suppose there's a nationwide election and the population would include every voter who casts a ballot on election day. Let's say, there are 1 Million voters.

Population=NPopulation = N

B. Sample

  • A smaller group selected from the population, ideally representing the larger group as accurately as possible.
