What is Selection Bias?

The bias that results from a study sample that is not representative of the target population, such that the measure of risks/benefits fails to represent the target population to which conclusions are being applied and extended. This could be a result of an error in the selection of study subjects or if there are other reasons that could explain why some participants are willing to participate in the study and not others, or if some participants are more likely to be selected than others.
