StatisticsQ&A Library4. Two populations are surveyed with simple random samples. A sample of size n is used for population I, which has a population standard deviation ; a sample of size 2 2n is used for population II, which has a population standard deviation σ-= 2σι. Ignoring finite population corrections, in which of the two samples would you expect the estimate of the population mean to be more accurate?Start your trial now!
