An intern for the environmental group in Exercise 3 has decided to make the survey process simpler by calling 150 of the members who attended the recent symposium on coping with climate change that was recently held in Burlington, VT. He has all the phone numbers, so it will be easy to contact them. He will start calling members from the top of the list, which was generated as the members enrolled for the symposium. He has written a script to read to them that follows, “As we learned in Burlington, climate change is a serious problem for farmers. Given the evidence of impact on crops, do you agree that the government should be doing more to fight global warming?”
a) What is the population of interest?
b) What is the sampling frame?
c) Point out any problems you see either with the sampling procedure and/or the survey itself. What are the potential impacts of these problems?
