A sample statistic is a numerical measure of a summary characteristic of a sample.

5-2 Sample Statistics as Estimators of Population Parameters


A population parameter is a numerical measure of a summary characteristic of a population.

An estimator of a population parameter is a sample

statistic used to estimate or predict the population parameter. An estimate of a parameter is a particular numerical value of a sample statistic obtained through sampling. A point estimate is a single value used as an estimate of a population parameter.

Estimators
The sample mean, is the most common The sample mean, X ,, is the most common estimator of the population mean, estimator of the population mean, .. The sample variance, 2, is the most common The sample variance, ss2, is the most common estimator of the population variance, 22. estimator of the population variance, . The sample standard deviation, s, is the most The sample standard deviation, s, is the most common estimator of the population standard common estimator of the population standard deviation, deviation, .. The sample proportion, is the most common The sample proportion, p,, is the most common estimator of the population proportion, p. estimator of the population proportion, p.

5-3 Sampling Distributions

The sampling distribution of a statistic is the probability distribution of all possible values the statistic may assume, when computed from random samples of the same size, drawn from a specified population. The sampling distribution of X is the probability distribution of all possible values the random variable may assume when a sample X of size n is taken from a specified population.

There are 8*8 = 64 different but equally-likely samples of size 2 that can be drawn (with replacement) from a uniform population of the integers from from Uniform (1,8) Samples of Size 2 1 to 8:

Each of these samples has a sample mean. For example, the mean of the sample (1,4) is 2.5, and the mean of the sample (8,4) is 6.

Sampling from a Normal Population

This means that, as the This means that, as the sample size increases, the sample size increases, the sampling distribution of the sampling distribution of the sample mean remains sample mean remains centered on the population centered on the population mean, but becomes more mean, but becomes more compactly distributed around compactly distributed around that population mean that population mean
