# Need by Sunday @ 7:30pm EST Data Collection and Nielsen Ratings

For this week’s assignment you will look at two different topics: data collection and Nielsen ratings.
Data Collection: When collecting data you have to be careful because you are making assumptions about the population by considering a sample of information. As a result your sampling approach needs to be well-thought-out. There are many ways to collect a sample and you have to be on the lookout for different sources of error.
Nielsen Ratings: Ratings are determined by many companies, but the most reputable has to be Nielsen. They measure data across multiple platforms (TV, online, mobile, etc.) and companies pay a lot of money for the results. The information we have access to is limited because it’s free, but you can find a lot of data on nielsen.com.
You will analyze both of these topics by carefully reading question and using the data that’s already provided.
Assignment Objectives:

Distinguish the different sampling methods that are used to collect data.
Identify various sources of error that are introduced when collecting samples and understand their impact on the statistical results.
