When I asked for a definition of sample set the answers were still
confusing, so here is a summary.
The report is on number of accidents in US in 1994. "Estimates are based
on a sample set of 100 cases."
The highest # is for skating at 222,006
lowest is for badminton at 1,798

The total number of accidents is 548,845 for whatever good that info is.

Obviously the #s are projections. Based on what?
