Differentiate population from sample

Math 
PsyDAG
A 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.
