sampling with replacement

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

The case where observations are taken one at a time from a population. The sampled value is returned to the population before the next value is selected. For example, in a competition with several prizes it is possible for one lucky person to be selected as the winner of several prizes. By contrast, sampling without replacement implies that each member of the population can be chosen only once.
