umm, this isn't some theory I'm cooking up. it's math. have you genuinely no understanding in basic statistics?ok, prove it.. lets see the work.
Anyone can play this silly game. I argue 365 days is a representative sample. Still too small for you? 8,760 hours certainly is large enough for a representative sample right?
Representative Sample vs. Random Sample: An Overview
Economists and researchers seek to reduce sampling bias to near negligible levels when employing statistical analysis. Three basic characteristics in a sample reduce the chances of sampling bias and allow economists to make more confident inferences about a general population from the results obtained from the sample analysis or study:
- Such samples must be representative of the chosen population studied.
- They must be randomly chosen, meaning that each member of the larger population has an equal chance of being chosen.
- They must be large enough so as not to skew the results. The optimal size of the sample group depends on the precise degree of confidence required for making an inference.
like, you really don't understand this?
