subsample

A subsample may be: (a) a portion of the sample obtained by selection or division; (b) an individual unit of the lot taken as part of the sample; (c) the final unit of multistage sampling. The term 'subsample' is used either in the sense of a 'sample of a sample' or as a synonym for 'unit'. In practice, the meaning is usually apparent from the context or is defined.
