There may be some form of systematic error in our analytical method that means that the measured value is not the same as the true value see below. Accuracy refers to how closely the measured value agrees with the true value.

The problem with determining the accuracy is that the true value of the parameter being measured is often not known. Nevertheless, it is sometimes possible to purchase or prepare standards that have known properties and analyze these standards using the same analytical technique as used for the unknown food samples.

For these reasons, analytical instruments should be carefully maintained and frequently calibrated to ensure that they are operating correctly.

Measure of Spread of Data. The spread of the data is a measurement of how closely together repeated measurements are to each other. The standard deviation is the most commonly used measure of the spread of experimental measurements.

This is determined by assuming that the experimental measurements vary randomly about the mean, so that they can be represented by a normal distribution.

The standard deviation SD of a set of experimental measurements is given by the following equation:. Measured values within the specified range:. Sources of Error. There are three common sources of error in any analytical technique:. These occur when the analytical test is not carried out correctly: the wrong chemical reagent or equipment might have been used; some of the sample may have been spilt; a volume or mass may have been recorded incorrectly; etc.

It is partly for this reason that analytical measurements should be repeated a number of times using freshly prepared laboratory samples. Blunders are usually easy to identify and can be eliminated by carrying out the analytical method again more carefully.

These produce data that vary in a non-reproducible fashion from one measurement to the next e. This type of error determines the standard deviation of a measurement. A systematic error produces results that consistently deviate from the true answer in some systematic way, e.

This type of error would occur if the volume of a pipette was different from the stipulated value. For example, a nominally cm 3 pipette may always deliver cm 3 instead of the correct value.

To make accurate and precise measurements it is important when designing and setting up an analytical procedure to identify the various sources of error and to minimize their effects. Often, one particular step will be the largest source of error, and the best improvement in accuracy or precision can be achieved by minimizing the error in this step.

Propagation of Errors. Most analytical procedures involve a number of steps e. These individual errors accumulate to determine the overall error in the final result. For random errors there are a number of simple rules that can be followed to calculate the error in the final result:.

Here, D X is the standard deviation of the mean value X, D Y is the standard deviation of the mean value Y, and D Z is the standard deviation of the mean value Z. These simple rules should be learnt and used when calculating the overall error in a final result.

As an example, let us assume that we want to determine the fat content of a food and that we have previously measured the mass of extracted fat extracted from the food M E and the initial mass of the food M I :.

Initially, we assign values to the various parameters in the appropriate propagation of error equation:. Hence, the fat content of the food is Significant Figures and Rounding. The number of significant figures used in reporting a final result is determined by the standard deviation of the measurements.

A final result is reported to the correct number of significant figures when it contains all the digits that are known to be correct, plus a final one that is known to be uncertain. For example, a reported value of For example, When rounding numbers: always round any number with a final digit less than 5 downwards, and 5 or more upwards, e.

It is usually desirable to carry extra digits throughout the calculations and then round off the final result. Standard Curves: Regression Analysis. When carrying out certain analytical procedures it is necessary to prepare standard curves that are used to determine some property of an unknown material.

A series of calibration experiments is carried out using samples with known properties and a standard curve is plotted from this data. For example, a series of protein solutions with known concentration of protein could be prepared and their absorbance of electromagnetic radiation at nm could be measured using a UV-visible spectrophotometer.

For dilute protein solutions there is a linear relationship between absorbance and protein concentration:. A best-fit line is drawn through the date using regression analysis , which has a gradient of a and a y-intercept of b.

How well the straight-line fits the experimental data is expressed by the correlation coefficient r 2 , which has a value between 0 and 1. Most modern calculators and spreadsheet programs have routines that can be used to automatically determine the regression coefficient, the slope and the intercept of a set of data.

Rejecting Data. When carrying out an experimental analytical procedure it will sometimes be observed that one of the measured values is very different from all of the other values, e. Occasionally, this value may be treated as being incorrect, and it can be rejected. There are certain rules based on statistics that allow us to decide whether a particular point can be rejected or not.

A test called the Q-test is commonly used to decide whether an experimental value can be rejected or not. Here X BAD is the questionable value, X NEXT is the next closet value to X BAD , X HIGH is the highest value of the data set and X LOW is the lowest value of the data set.

If the Q-value is higher than the value given in a Q-test table for the number of samples being analyzed then it can be rejected:.

Number of. Q-value for Data Rejection. For example, if five measurements were carried out and one measurement was very different from the rest e. Nielsen, S. Food Analysis, 2nd Edition. Aspen Publication, Gaithersberg , Maryland.

Procter, A. and Meullenet, J. Sampling and Sample Preparation. In: Food Analysis, 2nd Edition. SAMPLING AND DATA ANALYSIS 2. Samples are analyzed for a number of different reasons in the food industry and this affects the type of sampling plan used: · Official samples.

Some of the important points to consider are listed below: · A population may be either finite or infinite. Developing a Sampling Plan After considering the above factors one should be able to select or develop a sampling plan which is most suitable for a particular application.

Reducing Sample Size Once the sample has been made homogeneous, a small more manageable portion is selected for analysis. However, imagine analyzing the students currently enrolled at a university or food products being sold at a grocery store. This steps entails crafting the entire list of all items within your population.

The simple random sample process call for every unit within the population receiving an unrelated numerical value. This is often assigned based on how the data may be filtered. For example, I could assign the numbers 1 to to the companies based on market cap , alphabetical, or company formation date.

How the values are assigned doesn't entirely matter; all that matters is each value is sequential and each value has an equal chance of being selected. In step 2, we selected the number of items we wanted to analyze within our population.

For the running example, we choose to analyze 20 items. In the fifth step, we randomly select 20 numbers of the values assigned to our variables. In the running example, this is the numbers 1 through There are multiple ways to randomly select these 20 numbers discussed later in this article.

Example: Using the random number table, I select the numbers 2, 7, 17, 67, 68, 75, 77, 87, 92, , , , , , , , , , , and The last step of a simple random sample is the bridge step 4 and step 5.

Each of the random variables selected in the prior step corresponds to a item within our population. The sample is selected by identifying which random values were chosen and which population items those values match.

Example: My sample consists of the 2nd item in the list of companies alphabetically listed by CEO's last name. My sample also consists of company number 7, 17, 67, etc. There is no single method for determining the random values to be selected i.

Step 5 above. The analyst can not simply choose numbers at random as there may not be randomness with numbers. For example, the analyst's wedding anniversary may be the 24th, so they may consciously or subconsciously pick the random value Instead, the analyst may choose one of the following methods:.

When pulling together a sample, consider getting assistance from a colleague or independent person. They may be able to identify biases or discrepancies you may not be aware of. A simple random sample is used to represent the entire data population.

A stratified random sample divides the population into smaller groups, or strata, based on shared characteristics. Unlike simple random samples, stratified random samples are used with populations that can be easily broken into different subgroups or subsets.

These groups are based on certain criteria, then elements from each are randomly chosen in proportion to the group's size versus the population. This method of sampling means there will be selections from each different group—the size of which is based on its proportion to the entire population.

Researchers must ensure the strata do not overlap. Each point in the population must only belong to one stratum so each point is mutually exclusive. Overlapping strata would increase the likelihood that some data are included, thus skewing the sample.

Systematic sampling entails selecting a single random variable, and that variable determines the internal in which the population items are selected. For example, if the number 37 was chosen, the 37th company on the list sorted by CEO last name would be selected by the sample.

Then, the 74th i. the next 37th and the st i. the next 37th after that would be added as well. Simple random sampling does not have a starting point; therefore, there is the risk that the population items selected at random may cluster.

In our example, there may be an abundance of CEOs with the last name that start with the letter 'F'. Systematic sampling strives to even further reduce bias to ensure these clusters do not happen. Cluster sampling can occur as a one-stage cluster or two-stage cluster.

In a one-stage cluster, items within a population are put into comparable groupings; using our example, companies are grouped by year formed. Then, sampling occurs within these clusters. Two-stage cluster sampling occurs when clusters are formed through random selection. The population is not clustered with other similar items.

Then, sample items are randomly selected within each cluster. Simple random sampling does not cluster any population sets. Though sample random sampling may be a simpler, clustering especially two-stage clustering may enhance the randomness of sample items. In addition, cluster sampling may provide a deeper analysis on a specific snapshot of a population which may or may not enhance the analysis.

While simple random samples are easy to use, they do come with key disadvantages that can render the data useless. Ease of use represents the biggest advantage of simple random sampling.

In this paper we outlined the purpose and the importance of conducting rigorous uncertainty and sensitivity analyses in mathematical and computational modelling. We then presented SaSAT, a user-friendly software package for performing these analyses, and exemplified its use by investigating the impact of strategic interventions in the context of a simple theoretical model of an emergent epidemic.

The various tools provided with SaSAT were used to determine the importance of the three biological parameters infectivity rate, incubation period and infectious period in i determining whether or not less than people will be infected during the epidemic, and ii contributing to the variability in the overall attack number.

The various graphical options of SaSAT are demonstrated including: box plots to illustrate the results of the uncertainty analysis; scatter plots for assessing the relationships including monotonicity of response variables with respect to input parameters; CDF and tornado plots; and response surfaces for illustrating the results of sensitivity analyses.

The results of the example analyses presented here are for a theoretical model and have no specific "real world" relevance. However, they do illustrate that even for a simple model of only three key parameters, the uncertainty and sensitivity analyses provide clear insights, which may not be intuitively obvious, regarding the relative importance of the parameters and the most effective intervention strategies.

We have highlighted the importance of uncertainty and sensitivity analyses and exemplified this with a relatively simple theoretical model and noted that such analyses are considerably more important for complex models; uncertainty and sensitivity analyses should be considered an essential element of the modelling process regardless of the level of complexity or scientific discipline.

Finally, while uncertainty and sensitivity analyses provide an effective means of assessing a model's "trustworthiness", their interpretation assumes model validity which must be determined separately.

There are many approaches to model validation but a discussion of this is beyond the scope of the present paper. Here, with the provision of the easy-to-use SaSAT software, modelling practitioners should be enabled to carry out important uncertainty and sensitivity analyses much more extensively.

Selection of values from a statistical distribution defined with a probability density function for a range of possible values. For example, a parameter α may be defined to have a probability density function of a Normal distribution with mean 10 and standard deviation 2.

Sampling chooses N values from this distribution. A set of mathematical equations that attempt to describe a system. Typically, the model system of equations is solved numerically with computer simulations. Mathematical models are different to statistical models, which are usually described as a set of probability distributions or equation to fit empirical data.

A constant or variable that must be supplied as input for a mathematical model to be able to generate output. For example, the diameter of a pipe would be an input parameter in a model looking at the flow of water.

Data generated by the mathematical model in response to a set of supplied input parameters, usually relating to a specific aspect of the model, e. Method used to assess the variability prediction imprecision in the outcome variables of a model that is due to the uncertainty in estimating the input values.

Method that extends uncertainty analysis by identifying which parameters are important in contributing to the prediction imprecision. It quantifies how changes in the values of input parameters alter the value of outcome variables.

This allows input parameters to be ranked in order of importance, that is, the parameters that contribute the most to the variability in the outcome variable.

Latin Hypercube Sampling. This is an efficient method for sampling multi-dimensional parameter space to generate inputs for a mathematical model to generate outputs and conduct uncertainty analysis. A relationship or function which preserves a given trend; specifically, the relationship between two factors does not change direction.

That is, as one factor increases the other factor either always increases or always decreases, but does not change from increasing to decreasing. Iman RL, Helton JC: An Investigation of Uncertainty and Sensitivity Analysis Techniques for Computer Models.

What is your plagiarism Sampling Analysis Tools In non-probability sampling, not every individual has a chance of being included in the sample. For example, if the HR database groups employees by team, and team members are listed in order of seniority, there is a risk that your interval might skip over people in junior roles, resulting in a sample that is skewed towards senior employees. | Here, the relationship between each input parameter with each outcome variable is desired. Non-Probability Sampling Techniques is one of the important types of Sampling techniques. The sample may be too large to conveniently analyze using a laboratory procedure and so only a fraction of it is actually used in the final laboratory analysis. Sampling: What It Is, Different Types, and How Auditors and Marketers Use It Sampling is a process used in statistical analysis in which a group of observations are extracted from a larger population.

This is an efficient method for sampling multi-dimensional parameter space to generate inputs for a mathematical model to generate outputs and conduct uncertainty analysis. It is not usually possible to apply proper statistical analysis to this type of sampling, since the sub-samples selected are not usually a good representation of the population.

Samples are generated to: Test an hypothesis on one sample, then test it on another; Obtain very small tables which have the properties of the original table. To meet these different situations, several methods have been proposed. XLSTAT data sampling options XLSTAT offers the following methods for generating a sample of N observations from a table of M rows: N first rows: The sample obtained is taken from the first N rows of the initial table.

N last rows: The sample obtained is taken from the last N rows of the initial table. This method is only used if it is certain that the values have not been sorted according to a particular criterion which could introduce bias into the analysis N every s starting at k: The sample is built extracting N rows, every s rows, starting at row k Random without replacement: Observations are chosen at random and may occur only once in the sample Random with replacement: Observations are chosen at random and may occur several times in the sample Systematic from random start: From the j'th observation in the initial table, an observation is extracted every k observations to be used in the sample.

j is chosen at random from among a number of possibilities depending on the size of the initial table and the size of the final sample. k is determined such that the observations extracted are as spaced out as possible Systematic centered: Observations are chosen systematically in the centers of N sequences of observations of length k Random stratified 1 : Rows are chosen at random within N sequences of observations of equal length, where N is determined by dividing the number of observations by the requested sample size; Random stratified 2 : Rows are chosen at random within N strata defined by the user.

In each stratum, the number of sampled observations is proportional to the relative frequency of the stratum. Random stratified 3 : Rows are chosen at random within N strata defined by the user. In each stratum, the number of sampled observations is proportional to a relative frequency supplied by the user.

User defined: A variable indicates the frequency of each observation within the output sample. Training and test sets: Data are split into two parts — a training set and a test set. The rows of each set are randomly drawn from the initial dataset.

The size of the training set is defined by a number of rows. The size of the training set is defined by a row number percentage from the initial data set. View all tutorials. analyze your data with xlstat. Download xlstat.
