Sample is a term often used in statistics and scientific work that makes use of statistics, such as biology and psychology. See statistical sample.

A sample is also the use of a part of one song in another, for instance the use of the drumline from Led Zeppelin's "When the Levee Breaks" in a Beastie Boys song. "Samples" in this sense occur often in hip hop and R&B, but are becoming more common in other music, as well.
