Margins of error
The margin of error is added to and subtracted from a point estimate of a population parameter to form a confidence interval for a population parameter, usually with a confidence level of 95%. The margin of error is therefore half of the width of a confidence interval.
Generally a larger sample size will give a smaller margin of error.
The higher the confidence level, the greater the margin of error.
