First, we move from the probability ˇ ito the odds odds i= ˇ i 1 ˇ i; de ned as the ratio of the probability to its complement, or the ratio of favorable to unfavorable cases. If the probability of an event is a half, the odds are one-to-one or even. If the probability is 1/3, the odds are one-to-two.

For this reason, such a probability distribution is called stationary: Deﬁnition 3. A probability distribution ˇon Xis ...

### SAMPLING TECHNIQUES INTRODUCTION

cs.fit.edu

Probability sampling (a term due to Deming, [Deming]) is a sampling porcess that utilizes some form of random selection. In probability sampling, each unit is drawn with known probability, [Yamane, p3] or has a nonzero chance of being selected in the sample. [Raj, p10] Such samples are usually selected with the help of random numbers.
