Sampling and Sampling Distributions
True / False Questions 1. If we have a sample size of 100 and the estimate of the population proportion is .10, we can
estimate the sampling distribution of
with a normal distribution.
True False 2. A sample size of 500 is sufficiently large enough to conclude that the sampling distribution
of is a normal distribution, when the estimate of the population proportion is .995.
True False 3. The sampling distribution of
deviation 1.
True False must be a normal distribution with a mean 0 and standard 1535 Chapter 01  An Introduction to Business Statistics 4. For any sampled population, the population of all sample means is approximately normally
distributed.
True False 5. The sampling distribution of a sample statistic is the probability distribution of the
population of all possible values of the sample statistic.
True False 6. A sample statistic is an unbiased point estimate of a population parameter if the mean of the
populations of all possible values of the sample statistic equals the population parameter.
True False 1536 Chapter 01  An Introduction to Business Statistics 7. A minimum variance, unbiased point estimate has a variance that is as small or smaller than
the variances of any other unbiased point estimate.
True False 8. We can randomly select a sample from an infinite population of potential process
measurements by sampling the process at different and equally spaced time points.
True False 9. The reason sample variance has a divisor of n1 rather than n is that it makes the variance
an unbiased estimate of the population variance.
True False 10. The standard deviation of all possible sample proportions increases as the sample size
increases.
True False 11. The central limit theorem states that as sample size increases, the population distribution
more closely approximates a normal distribution.
True False 12. If a population is known to be normally distributed, then it follows that the sample
standard deviation must equal σ.
True False 13. If the sampled population is exactly normal distribution,...
