Population size matters (sometimes)

What about small populations? For example, your sample size of 385 makes no sense for a small population of 100. Can you direct me to a source that would explain this?0November 21, 2006 at 6:34 pm #147692

Frankly, your post makes no sense either. It seems to be out of context and possibly a reply to another thread. As to what I think you are saying probably refers to the Finite Population Correction Factor. Do a web search on it to get specifics. At a high level, the usual sample size calculations assume a large population. Where a small population exists, some adjustment is needed to reflect that. That is where the correction factor comes in.0
