Explain the Population, Sample, Parameter of interest and Statistic. Population: All the 800 CEOs Sample: The randomly selected 50 CEOs Parameter: The Average compensation of all the CEOs (also the average age) Statistics: The average compensation of the randomly selected CEOs (also the average age) b.

Why is the person extreme outlier? The extreme outlier is Disney chairman, Mr. Michael D Eisner, his compensation is huge \$203,020,000 for that particular year. d. What are the population mean, the sample mean, the population standard deviation and sample standard deviation for age and compensation? ( MINITAB: Print the Quartiles, Moments, Histograms and Box plots for the population and sample.) Refer to printouts given below: Population (compensation) Sample Mean = μ = \$ 2, 818,743 Mean = x-bar = \$2,193,278 St. dev = σ = \$8,320,053 St. dev = s = \$1,929,746 Population (Age) Sample Mean = μ = 56.325 years Mean= x-bar = 56.720 years St. dev = σ = 6.915 years St dev= s= 5.33 years Below is Population information.
