If the sample statistics is the sample mean, then the distribution is the sampling distribution of the sample means. The sampling distribution consists of the values of the sample means, ,... , , , , , 6 5 4 3 2 1 x x x x x x 2 x Sampling Distributions Population with mean ( u ) 4 x 1 x 5 x 3 x 6 x = x n x = x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x the sample means will have a normal distribution The Central Limit Theorem If a sample n 30 is taken from a population with any type distribution that has a mean = and standard deviation = = x with a mean n x = and standard deviation If a sample of any size is taken from a population with...
