**PsyDAG**, Wednesday, February 27, 2013 at 9:08pmIf it is from

*all*previous pieces, then it is the measure of a population and therefore a parameter. If it is just based on a previous sample (part of a population), then it is a statistic.

**Please help**, Wednesday, February 27, 2013 at 9:32pmI understand the population = parameter and sample = statistic. I don't understand whether the "1" is referring to a population or just the 10 pieces.

"10 measurements are made on pieces of glass know to have conductivity "1."

is the "1" representing the population or just the 10 pieces/sample??
