NAME

SemanticWeb::Schema::StatisticalPopulation - A StatisticalPopulation is a set of instances of a certain given type that satisfy some set of constraints

VERSION

version v5.0.0

DESCRIPTION

A StatisticalPopulation is a set of instances of a certain given type that satisfy some set of constraints. The property populationType is used to specify the type. Any property that can be used on instances of that type can appear on the statistical population. For example, a StatisticalPopulation representing all Persons with a homeLocation of East Podunk California, would be described by applying the appropriate homeLocation and populationType properties to a StatisticalPopulation item that stands for that set of people. The properties numConstraints and constrainingProperties are used to specify which of the populations properties are used to specify the population. Note that the sense of "population" used here is the general sense of a statistical population, and does not imply that the population consists of people. For example, a populationType of Event or NewsArticle could be used. See also Observation, and the data and datasets overview for more details.

ATTRIBUTES

constraining_property

constrainingProperty

Indicates a property used as a constraint to define a StatisticalPopulation with respect to the set of entities corresponding to an indicated type (via populationType).

A constraining_property should be one of the following types:

InstanceOf['SemanticWeb::Schema::Integer']

num_constraints

numConstraints

Indicates the number of constraints (not counting populationType) defined for a particular StatisticalPopulation. This helps applications understand if they have access to a sufficiently complete description of a StatisticalPopulation.

A num_constraints should be one of the following types:

InstanceOf['SemanticWeb::Schema::Integer']

population_type

populationType

Indicates the populationType common to all members of a StatisticalPopulation.

A population_type should be one of the following types:

InstanceOf['SemanticWeb::Schema::Class']
