Sampling distributions are probability distributions of statistics. In other words, we want to find out the sampling distribution of the sample mean. The Sampling Distribution of x We are able to show 2 Ex( ) and Var(x) n σ ==µ . 0000036087 00000 n
The sampling distribution of a statistic (in this case, of a mean) is the distribution obtained by computing the statistic for all possible samples of a specific size drawn from the same population. 0000034994 00000 n
Sampling distributions Distribution – sampling distributions of means,Sample space and events Probability The axioms of probability • We will take a random sample of 25 people from this population and count X = number with gene. Sampling is a procedure, where in a fraction of the data is taken from a large set of data, and the inference drawn from the sample is extended to whole group. 97 0 obj

• It is a theoretical probability distribution of the possible values of some sample statistic that would occur if we were to draw all possible samples of a fixed size from a given population. Not all sampling distributions are Gaussian. Section 8.4. NOTE: If the original ‘parent population’ from which the sample was drawn is normal, then X follows a normal distribution for any n(a linear combination of normals is normal), and the CLT is not needed to achieve normality. NOTES: z-scores for distributions In general, the z-score for a value in a sampling distribution is the value minus the mean of the distribution divided by the standard deviation of the distribution. 0000010194 00000 n

AP Statistics – Chapter 7 Notes: Sampling Distributions 7.1 – What is a Sampling Distribution? Many people have written excellent notes for introductory courses in probability. Sampling distributions are probability distributions of statistics. 2 7 Example: Sampling Distribution for a Sample Proportion • Suppose (unknown to us) 40% of a population carry the gene for a disease (p = 0.40). Figure 4-5 illustrates a case where the normal distribution closely approximates the binomial when p is small but the sample size is large. If you're seeing this message, it means we're having trouble loading external resources on our website. Section 8.4. 13. The Central Limit Theorem also tells us that the distribution of x can be approximated by the Normal Distribution if the sample size is large.
