Sampling theory is the field of statistics that is involved

with the collection, analysis and interpretation of data gathered

from random samples of a population under study. The application

of sampling theory is concerned not only with the proper

selection of observations from the population that will

constitute the random sample; it also involves the use of

probability theory, along with prior knowledge about the

population parameters, to analyze the data from the random sample

and develop conclusions from the analysis. The normal

distribution, along with related probability distributions, is

most heavily utilized in developing the theoretical background

for sampling theory.
