The population mean, which is just the percentage of soils with constant lime enrichment in the entire study area, would be unchanged. 4 Estimation of Population Totals In many situations there is more interest in the total of all values in a population, rather than the mean per sample unit. For example, the total area damaged by an oil spill is likely to be of more concern than the average area damaged on sample units. It turns out that the estimation of a population total is straightforward providing that the population size N is known, and an estimate of the population mean is available.

Second, there may be value in having separate estimates of population parameters for the different strata. Third, stratification makes it possible to sample different parts of a population in different ways, which may make some cost savings possible. However, stratification can also cause problems that are best avoided if possible. 1. Exxon's Shoreline Ecology Program and the Oil Spill Trustees' Coastal Habitat Injury Assessment were both upset to some extent by an initial misclassification of units to strata which meant that the final samples within the strata were not simple random samples.

4 Estimation of Population Totals In many situations there is more interest in the total of all values in a population, rather than the mean per sample unit. For example, the total area damaged by an oil spill is likely to be of more concern than the average area damaged on sample units. It turns out that the estimation of a population total is straightforward providing that the population size N is known, and an estimate of the population mean is available. It is obvious, for example, that if a population consists of 500 plots of land, with an estimated mean amount of oil spill damage of 15 square metres, then it is estimated that the total amount of damage for the whole population is 500 x 15 = 7500 square metres.
