Statistics: Unlocking the Power of Data Lock 5 Outline Central limit theorem Confidence interval using a normal distribution Hypothesis test using a normal distribution
Statistics: Unlocking the Power of Data Lock 5 Central Limit Theorem For random samples with a sufficiently large sample size, the distribution of sample statistics for a mean or a proportion is normally distributed

Statistics: Unlocking the Power of Data Lock 5 Central Limit Theorem The central limit theorem holds for ANY original distribution, although “sufficiently large sample size” varies The more skewed the original distribution is, the larger n has to be for the CLT to work For quantitative variables that are not very skewed, n ≥ 30 is usually sufficient For categorical variables, counts of at least 10 within each category is usually sufficient
