Categorical Proportion (Qualitative) SE(p^) Numerical Mean (Quantitative) SE(y-bar) Variance Measurement type Population or Phenomenon Characteristic (Parameter) Sample Characteristic, Point Estimate (Statistic) Variation associated with the location estimator Standard Error of the Estimate SE(statistic) calculated for a sample of n denoted by p or p^ Measures the location of the distribution center denoted by µ or y-bar Measures the variation or spread of the distribution denoted by σ 2 s 2 The Proportion & Mean are both location parameters. The variance measures spread, hence it is not a location parameter and no Standard Error is determined. y p ˆ
