Read a newspaper article from a reasonably reputable news outlet having to do with any study that contains a representative sample.
Explain in four paragraphs (no more than two pages) a) the article you read, b) the main arguments or points within it, and c) your evaluation of those arguments or points.
The representative sample contains an adequate sample size and a non-biased sample.
Adequate sample size: the sample size must be large enough to support the generalization.
Non-biased sample: the sample must not be biased.
Bias, according to the New Oxford American Dictionary, is “prejudice in favor of or against one thing, person, or group compared with another, usually in a way considered to be unfair.”
