**PsyDAG**, Thursday, June 12, 2008 at 11:14amA population is

*all*of a particular group, while a sample is only a*portion*of that group.

I searched Google under the key words "*population sample*" to get these possible sources:

http://www.ltcconline.net/greenl/courses/102/Statistics/population_sample_and_data.htm

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sampling_(statistics)

In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search. Also see http://hanlib.sou.edu/searchtools/.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
