Probability, its meaning, real and theoretical populations

Abstract

By a ‘finite’ population we mean one with a finite (= countable) number of individuals. Thus, the population of wage-rates of Table 2.1 is finite, and so too are populations of men’s heights, since the number of men in the world, though large, is countable. (It is possible to envisage infinite populations, as will be seen.)
