The sample is a subset of the population, and the size of the sample determines the margin-of-error.

18 samples from a population of (65) P5 schools should yield an acceptable MoE for this purpose.

          He's pointing out, correctly, that the vast majority of - zounami MU - 10/8 07:31:32
               It's a dumb premise/argument; it's irrelevant. - Mizzmi27 MU - 10/8 07:52:32
                    It's pretty damn relevant, unless you want to ignore sex(nm) - AWOLTiger KC - 10/8 09:03:33
                         lol. wat(nm) - Mizzmi27 MU - 10/8 09:16:42
                              How do you differentiate between mens and womens - AWOLTiger KC - 10/8 09:23:24
                                   Oh boy. You realize this discussion is about twitter right? - Mizzmi27 MU - 10/8 10:01:15
                    Then why does virtually every other school follow the - zounami MU - 10/8 07:54:35
                         Because people are dumb. They do irrelevant sh*t and complai - Mizzmi27 MU - 10/8 08:01:05
                              Do you think 'tgr' is dumb?... - zounami MU - 10/8 08:16:57

                                             I don't remember, I don't think so. - Mizzmi27 MU - 10/8 09:02:28
     While I agree with the premise of your argument... - zounami MU - 10/8 01:38:13

               Or—and this might be a crazy thought— - zodiac6 JC - 10/8 05:05:30
                    Why do you think every other school puts "W" or "Women's" - zounami MU - 10/8 05:31:28
                         It's hyperbolike to say "every other school." - GeorgiaTiger76 MU - 10/8 06:45:00
                              Not really. 12 out of 14 SEC schools put "Women's" or "W" - zounami MU - 10/8 07:09:23
                                   I didn't "cherry-pick" UGA. I live in Atlanta, so I searched - GeorgiaTiger76 MU - 10/8 07:35:07
                                        and that sample size of 1 led you to the wrong conclusion... - zounami MU - 10/8 07:42:16

                                             12/14 schools in the SEC don't do it and you claimed - Mizzmi27 MU - 10/8 07:51:32
                                                  No, 12 out of 14 SEC schools *do* follow the convention... - zounami MU - 10/8 07:56:20
                                                       Mr. Sample Size doesn't understand sample size. - Mizzmi27 MU - 10/8 07:58:25
                                                            You're confusing sample size with population size... - zounami MU - 10/8 08:03:27
                                                                 No we're talking about the "every school" claim and whether - Mizzmi27 MU - 10/8 08:10:09

                                                                           Perhaps you should look up the definition. - Mizzmi27 MU - 10/8 08:18:14
                                                                                definition of hyperbole, according to Merriam-Webster... - zounami MU - 10/8 08:21:03
                                                                                     Yes, everyone would agree it's hyperbole. - Mizzmi27 MU - 10/8 09:01:20
                                                                                          that's not hyperbole either.... - zounami MU - 10/8 09:16:58
                                                                                               No, it was a topical hyperbolic joke. - Mizzmi27 MU - 10/8 10:03:48
                                                                                                    no reasonable person would think the statement was - zounami MU - 10/8 10:07:47

                                                  Once again you fail to understand the concept of sample size - zounami MU - 10/8 07:44:51
                                                       Not sure why you have to be so abrasive when you argue - GeorgiaTiger76 MU - 10/8 08:37:09
                                                            I'm actually quite good at keeping things civil... - zounami MU - 10/8 08:43:43
