  • 2 Statistics VS Parameters Statistic is a numerical value computed from a sample. Parameter is a numerical value associated with a population. Essentially, we would like to know the parameter. But in most cases it is hard to know the parameter since the population is too large. So we have to estimate the parameter by some proper statistics computed from the sample.

  • 4 A.Sampling Distribution of the Sample Proportion Situation 1: A survey is undertaken to determine the proportion of PSU students who engage in under-age drinking. The survey asks 200 random under-age students (assume no problems with bias). Suppose the true population proportion of those who drink is 60%. Thus, p = 0.6 and is the proportion in the sample who drink. Thus, p = 0.6 and is the proportion in the sample who drink.

What would the sampling distribution of look like?

X is binomial with n =200 and p =0.6. X is binomial with n =200 and p =0.6. So, we can calculate the probability of X for each possible outcome (0-200). The PDF is plotted below: So, we can calculate the probability of X for each possible outcome (0-200). The PDF is plotted below:

Since X ~Bin (n =200, p =0.6), the sampling distribution of is the same as that of the binomial distribution divided by n. Therefore we have Therefore we have

Using the Normal approximation to the binomial distribution we have that the sampling distribution of is approximately Normal with mean p and std. dev. i.e. i.e. The conditions for this approximation to be valid are: The conditions for this approximation to be valid are: 1. The sample selected from the population is random. 2. The sample must be large enough, np and n(1-p) MUST be greater than 5, and should be greater than 10.

Recent studies have shown that about 20% of American adults fit the medical definition of being obese. A large medical clinic would like to estimate what percent of their patients are obese, so they take a random sample of 100 patients and find that 18 percent are obese. A large medical clinic would like to estimate what percent of their patients are obese, so they take a random sample of 100 patients and find that 18 percent are obese. Suppose in truth, the same percentage holds for the patients of the medical clinic as for the general population, 20%.

Sampling Distribution of the Sample Mean Situation 2: The mean height of women age 20 to 30, X, is normally distributed (bell-shaped) with a mean of 65 inches and a standard deviation of 3 inches. i.e. X ~N(65,9) A random sample of 200 women was taken and the sample mean recorded. A random sample of 200 women was taken and the sample mean recorded. Now IMAGINE taking MANY samples of size 200 from the population of women. For each sample we record the.

Suppose our population looked something like this, let us take repeated samples from this population and see what the sample mean looks like.
