The Statistical Process The Population The individuals have at least one attribute, e.g., age, which varies over them. Hence,this attribute has a probability distribution Parameters Expected value (mean) Standard deviation Probability Direct analysis The Sample The value of age varies over the individuals in the sample, but can be measured. This collec- tion of measurements is called the sample. Statistics Sample average Sample standard deviation Sample proportion A three-step, roundabout process to obtain information about the population using partial information from a sample. Select a representative small group 1 Calculate summaries 2 Inference from statistics to parameters 3
