The "universe" (ah set theory in a bugzilla discussion :)) of users are
those who have taken the time to register themselves with a valid email
on the bugzilla system, and thus generally represent the core of bug
reporting users. You'd know this if you stopped by the KDE bugzilla, or
read the link in the original post.

As someone familiar with mathematics, you should know that accuracy is a
relative measure. Political polls use very strict statistics to arrive
at very high accuracies given they only asked 0.01 percent of the voting
