Importance of Sampling to Overall Uncertainty in an Analysis

The overall variance in an analysis, s2, is the sum of the variances arising from the method, (smeth)2, and the variance due to sampling, (ssamp)2.  s2 = (smeth)2 +  (ssamp)2 The blue curve in this figure shows the method’s contribution to the … Continue reading
