    In statistics, a population is a complete set of items that share at least one property in common that is the subject of a statistical analysis. For example we might be dealing with everyone living in France - a country where they all share the same language.

    Another example might be all the people in a town that own a computer.

    well - I expect you need do a survey - is it all the teenagers in your school or grade?

    it all depends on how you define your population these 15 can be defined as 'my group of friends who like music' That's the population. the ones who like pop, rap and country are sub populations.
