I'm confused about the difference between the population and experimental units in a situation like the following:

A questionnaire is being used to measure the reaction of two groups of students from a particular American university to a television clip: one group who knows it's in standard definition and another group who thinks it's in high definition.

• Statistics -

The population is the group to whom you want to generalize your conclusions. From your limited data, it could be students at that university, all college students or people as a whole. The experimental units are samples from these populations.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
