The larger the sample, in general, the more accurate will be the conclusions drawn from it

Usually, attempts are made to select a "sample population" that is considered representative of groups of people to whom results will be generalized or transferred.

or representative sample a set of cases drawn from the larger population. In order to be representative, a sample needs to drawn using pre-defined criteria. A random sample is one in which each case in the population has the same probability of being included in the sample each time a new cases is selected. A stratified sample is one in which random sampling is conducted within classifications of cases with a know proportion of cases in the population. Stratified sampling is used to gather representative cases with enough coverage of low proportion cases. When analysis is conducted the proportions for each stratification category are used to adjust the sample results for the over sampling. A convince sample is one in which available cases are used without controls of their representativeness. For example, using one's friends and acquaintances, or everyone one meets at a bar, as a sample of a town's population.
A part of the total population. Used in statistics to make predictions about the characteristics of the entire group.
The sample screenplay is the representative piece of writing for a particular artist that an agent/manager solicits in order to fill an open writing assignment. Most samples are already set up at a studio, or made it to the screen. In either case, the representative looks for examples from that artist which will best fit the description of the assignment. An available screenplay can be used as a sample, but usually only if absolutely necessary.

A subset of people in a particular population.
sample refers to the selected portion of the population that is actually researched, for example, in a social survey, the people who are asked the questions. Sampling provides the basis for drawing conclusions about the broader population. For example, political opinion polls are based on sophisticated sampling strategies that allow reasonably accurate predictions to be made about voting intentions from relatively small samples. There a many ways of sampling, not all of which are likely to result in a representative sample. Qualitative researchers are less likely to be concerned with selecting a representative sample.
A subset of a population selected by the investigator for study. A random sample is constructed such that each member of the population has an equal chance of being picked. A stratified sample is constructed such that every relevant subgroup of the population is randomly sampled in proportion to its size. See also population.
A sound or short piece of audio stored digitally in a computer, synthesizer or Sampler. The word sample may refer to either a single moment in a digital audio stream (the smallest piece of data used to represent an audio signal at a given time) or a complete sound or digital audio stream made up of a collection of individual samples. For a more detailed explanation of samples, see Digital Audio Basics.
