1 ISMT 111 B USINESS S TATISTICS T UTORIAL 5 created by Andrew Yam Sampling Distribution of Sample Statistics The sampling distribution of a statistic is the probability distribution of all the possible values of this statistic which are computed from random samples with same sample size ( n ). Notation: n = Sample size X = Random variable µ = Population mean X = Sample mean σ = Population standard deviation s = Sample standard deviation se = Standard error p = Population proportion p ˆ = Sample proportion Central Limit Theorem (CLT) Regardless of the population distribution of X which is with a mean µ and a standard deviation σ , if the sample size n is sufficiently large, the sampling distribution of the sample mean X will be APPROXIMATELY normally distributed with mean m m = X and standard deviation n X / s s = (also called standard error of the mean, denoted as ( 29 X se ). Note: There are four possible cases Normal Population Non-normal Population n is large n N X 2 , ~ s m

    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.
