Sampling Error

The deviation of a result in a scientific experiment from the true result. As a rule of thumb, larger scale experiments have a lower sampling error (all things being equal bar the differentiating factor of the experiment). A larger scale represents a more apparent trend when the data has been collected to back a hypothesis or prove it wrong.
