Lab 4: The Sampling Distribution and the Central Limit Theorem (Part 1) Solutions INST 314 Fall 2018 Motivation: Smoking and Birthweight in North Carolina In 2004, the state of North Carolina released to the public a large data set containing information on births recorded in this state. This data set has been of interest to medical researchers who are studying the relation between habits and practices of expectant mothers and the birth of their children. One of the variables collected was habit , indicating whether the mother was a smoker or a nonsmoker, and we are interested in whether this is related to the lowbirthweight status of the baby. In this lab, we will go over how to use simulations to generate a theoretical sampling distribution, then use that sampling distribution to make a conclusion about the relationship between a mother’s smoking habit and the baby’s birthweight. Let’s start as always by bringing in the packages and data that we’ll be using.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
