    Representative sample - how to decide

    I am interested in understanding some of the Covid 19 statistics being thrown around. What I want to know is how to figure out whether a sample that was used to generate probabilities was actually representative of the population that was supposed to be sampled. I want to do this 'backwards' so...

    Statistical significance/ probability

    I have data for number of different vehicle types (cars, 2-Wheelers, 3-Ws, other) and which vehicle is following (going behind) which vehicle in 5 lanes (one direction). For example, In this table, 3Ws are following 120 2Ws and 90 cars. In other table it shows total number of vehicles present...

    Using probit model

    Could anybody explain to me how to work with a model based on probit analysis? I have for example a model like this: Z=-2,067-2,324x+3,213y+1,782v (x, y, v will be replaced by measured values) and I would like to get a probability. I know I have to use several steps but i have no idea which...
