Sources of Inaccuracies/Errors
In this experiment, the error could have been that the people being experiments estimated the data. This could skew the results because the average amount of sleep could be miscalculated causing the data to be inaccurate. Another source of error can be that more people are likely to have more sleep on a Monday than any other weekday. This is because most people tend to finish their work over the weekend allowing them to have more sleep on Sunday night. Since this was a random sample, there could have also been the fact that some people have to deal with insomnia or other sleeping disorders. This could skew the data because the average of these hours could have been altered. Thus, this could cause inaccurate results. These factors are just a few out of many that has caused the experiment to have been skewed.
