Thus, sublevel VA includes the spinal accessory nodes, whereas sublevel VB includes the nodes following the transverse cervical vessels and the supraclavicular nodes, with the exception of the Virchow node, which is located in level IV.

The existence of true population values is postulated, and these values are estimated from the group under study, which is only a sample of the larger population. If a survival rate was calculated from a second sample taken from the same population, it is unlikely that the results would be exactly the same.

The standard error is a measure of the extent to which sampling variation influences the computed survival rate.
