Waterfowl Harvest Report 2013-14

Post by PJB »

The past few years I have participated in US Fish and Game's harvest reports. I just recieved the previous season's stat's. Also have earlier stats as well if anyone is interested in the numbers.

I think that's pretty cool to be able to see the numbers. I think it'd be interesting to know how far off they actually were since not everyone participates in the survey. Or maybe this is their "corrected" numbers, thanks either way

It is not possible to include the population. Instead, a sample (those involved in the survey) of the population (total number of duck hunters) is used in a set of techniques that aid in drawing inferences to test the hypotheses. The sample is chosen at random and equally distributed across the population. After data is collected from the population sample, it is generalized to the popluation. Different formulas are used to caclulate standard error and deviation then rounded to a numerical expression. So, are the stats 100 percent accurate? No, but CAN be a close representation to the numbers harvested.
