The August caption contest featured a single castaway on a small island being interviewed by a well-dressed man holding a clipboard.
The winning caption for the August contest was "Let’s just skip the survey and jump right to the census,” written by Jim Alloway from EMSQ Associates. =Jim’s caption can be used for discussions that compare and contrast survey samples versus a census.
Two honorable mentions this month both go to Steve Wang from Swarthmore College for his captions “And how many other people are there in your household?” and for his second caption “Hi, I'm conducting a sample of the island. Guess I'll be needing the finite population correction.”
