WEEK 5, Monday, Sept 27 Today: Cover Sections 3-8, 3-10 and 3-11 . Hypergeometric Distributions (Sec 3-8) . The Hypergeometric probability distributions arise when counting Successes when sampling n at random from a dichotomous, finite population. Hypergeometric probability distributions have three parameters: N = # of elements in the population, n = sample size, and S = # of elements in the population of a particular type, which we will call Successes. We will denote the Hypergeometric distribution by HG( n , S , N ). It is sometimes useful to let p denote the ratio S / N , the probability of a Success on a single random selection from the population. The Hypergeometric distribution is the sampling distribution for the number X of S's in a simple random sample of size n selected from the population. Here is the picture of what is going on.

When using simple random sampling and a small sample size relative to the population size, i.e., with n / N small, the Hypergeometric distribution is well-approximated by the Binomial with # of Trials equal to n and chance of success on a single trial equal to p = S / N . For this reason, the Binomial distributions arise as sampling distributions in simple random sampling from a dichotomous population. (If the selections were made with replacement, the Binomial is the exact sampling distribution.) The textbook usually ignores the population size N and the fpcf after Chapter 3. We will not.
