Introduction

                                                                 Psychologists have long been interested in the relationship between stress and health. A focused question might involve the study of a specific psychological symptom and its impact on the health of the population. To assess whether the symptom is a good indicator of stress we need to measure the symptom and stress levels in a sample of individuals from the population. It is not immediately clear how we should go about collecting this sample, i.e. how we should design the study. We haven’t got very far before we need Statistics.
