For example, an economist might wish to learn about the economic condition of Appalachian farmers. He first defines the population. Involved in this is specifying the geographical area “Appalachia” and deciding whether a “farmer” is the person who owns land suitable for farming, the person who works on it, or the person who makes managerial decisions about how the land is to be used.

2. p(y) ¼ 1, that is, the sum of p( y) over all values of y is 1. y Note that in the baby cereal example these two conditions are satisfied. There are many functions that satisfy these two conditions. 1, examples A through D represent discrete probability distributions. In example D the random variable has a countable infinity of values, and p( y) can be given by the formula p( y) ¼ (1/2)y. In many cases it is possible to represent the probability function by a formula. It is not difficult to find functions with the two properties required for a probability function.
