    I think it's likely they are going to ask about;
    Normal Distribution
    Time series (including moving averages)
    Spearman's Rank
    Histograms
    Interpreting data
    Maybe Binomial Distribution!
    I agree !! Also sampling methods

    What is quota sampling ?
    Quota sampling is when you take pre-specified numbers of the population with certain characteristics (e.g sex, age)

    An example would be like choosing 20 boys and 20 girls to do a questionnaire

    QUICK QUESTION !!
    You know for the trend line and the seasonal moving averages. You know the question ( usually the last part ) it says estimate the .... for 2008 quarter 2. Use your answer to part (d). How do you know whether to add it or take it away ?!
    Also another question - when drawing the line of best fit do you draw it through the mean ?
    if its all the other 2nd quarters are above the line add it, they normally are above

    Simple Index numbers: (current price/base year price) x100

    Chain base index number: (current price/ previous year's price) x100

    Weighted index numbers: sum of (index no. X weights)/ sum of weights

    thank you and what about chain base?
    Current price / the previous years price times by 100.
    Chain base index number tells you the annual precentage change.
