Bayes Rule: P ( A  B ) = P ( B  A ) P ( A ) P ( B ) New Concepts 1. The Normal Distribution X N ( , 2 ) is a continuous distribution ie. the probability that x takes on any one value is zero; we use it to find the probability that x is between a and b . A Zscore shows how many standard deviations from the mean a value is; Z = X In Stata, find P ( X < x ) by inputting display normal((x  u)/s) where x is your value, u is your mean, and s is your standard deviation. 2. Sampling: the sample has mean X . E ( X ) = and V ar ( X ) = 2 n . 3. Confidence Intervals: youre some percent confident that the true mean lies within x t s n , where...
