Swedish term or phrase: totalundersökning
Detta handlar om när man undersöker en hel population med hjälp av exempelvis enkäter. Om man till exempel frågar alla 349 riksdagsledamöter om deras jobb är det en totalundersökning, men om man istället gör ett urval och endast frågar 35 riksdagsledamöter (10 %) är det en urvalsundersökning. Min fråga är helt enkelt om det finns någon allmänt vedertagen term för detta på engelska.
