An environmental advocacy group is interested in the perceptions of farmers about global climate change. Specifically, they wish to determine the percentage of organic farmers who are concerned that climate change will affect their crop yields. They use an alphabetized list of members of the Northeast Organic Farming Association (, a nonprofit organization of over 5000 members with chapters in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont. They use Excel to generate a randomly shuffled list of the members. They then select members to contact from this list until they have succeeded in contacting 150 members.

c) What is the population parameter of interest?
