In order to deal with specie conservation the finite population size (500) and family size (10), the overlap generations conservation method using equal family conservation was proposed.
Our demographic analyses showed that finite population growth rate was constant and equal to 1.
Royall and Cumberland (1985) studied the conditional coverage properties of finite population confidence [TABULAR DATA FOR TABLE 1 OMITTED] intervals and concluded that the non-normality due to skewness has a strong effect on the distribution of the standardized error of both the traditional ratio (-of-means) and regression estimators.
The correlated response of a character to a single generation of direct selection on another trait is described briefly, followed by the theoretical expectations of long-term correlated response under the infinitesimal model in an infinite population and the few locus model in a finite population.
A Chain Ratio-type Estimator in Finite Population Double Sampling using two Auxiliary Variables.
Chernick, a biostatician in medical research, and LaBudde, a mathematical software developer, explain that in statistics, bootstrapping is a technique of making inferences about a sampling distribution of a statistic by resampling the sample itself with replacement, as if it were a finite population.
Avery and Hill (1979) showed that linkage disequilibrium, generated by finite population size, further inflates dominance variance within subpopulations, which contributes to total genetic variance within subpopulations.
The study explored how the application of finite population correction factors to the between-school component of variance could be used to modify sample sizes required of states that currently qualify for the exemptions from State NAEP minimum sample requirements.
Often it happened that the information about sampling frame in a finite population setup is not available and the conventional sampling methods are no more useful.
We further investigated this possibility under finite population sizes using simulation.
This paper explores the application of finite population correction factors to the between-school component of variance and examines how this might affect sample size requirements in states that currently require exemption from the minimum sample requirements for the state NAEP.
