Sample Size

In the social sciences, one of the most important prerequisites for a meaningful study is adequate sample size.  Steve Rennie reports for the Canadian Press, "The federal government had to scrap a planned study into the criminal activities of young francophones in English-speaking Canada -- and anglophone youths in Quebec -- when they couldn't find enough kids from those groups who broke the law, new documents show."

C'mon kids, you're screwing up our study!  Get out there and commit more crimes!
