Poisson sampling

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

This method can be used when events are happening in time at random at an unknown rate. In Poisson sampling the rate is estimated by noting the number of events that occur in a predesignated time. The alternative is gamma sampling in which the estimate is based on the time taken to record a predesignated number of events.
