ANS: Which points should be keep in view while fixing the statistical unit

(i) The unit must suit the purpose of the enquiry.

(ii) It should be simple to understand.

(iii) It should be specific

(iv) It should be stable in character. If the unit charges. if the unit changes its characteristics, e.g. a yard at one time and a meter at other time. The measurements and counts would be misleading.

(v) The unit should be uniform throughout the study so that there can be valid comparisons. If units are defined differently at different stages of the survey, not only comparisons would become difficult but also they would lead to wrong or even absurd conclusions.
