New cards
59

statistic

New cards
60

parameter:

New cards
61

sampling distribution

the sampling distribution of a statistic is the distribution of values taken by the statistic in all possible samples of the same size from the same population

New cards
62

steps to create a sampling distribution

1. Take a larger number of samples from the same population

2. Calculate the p-hat or x-bar for each sample

3. Make a histogram of these values

4. Examine the distribution displayed in the histogram for overall pattern (shape), center, and spread

New cards
63

Bias versus Unbiased

If the sample is collected randomly, the mean of your sample should approach the mean of your population -- this is considered unbiased

New cards
64

variability

as you take the many samples of a sampling distribution, the bigger the sample size of each sample, the closer each sample mean will be to the population mean (bigger sample = less variability)

New cards
65

Central Limit Theorem

The sampling distribution of the means from any population whatsoever (regardless of shape) will be normal provided the sample size of the individual samples is large enough (generally 30+)

New cards
66

Sample means

The mean of the x-bars (sample means) is an unbiased estimator of the population mean
