DEFINITION: A point estimate is a single value estimate for a population parameter. The best point estimate of the population mean is the sample mean

A random sample of 35 airfare prices (in dollars) for a one-way ticket from Atlanta to Chicago. Find a point estimate for the population mean, .

99 101 107

102 109 98

105 98 107

104 96 105

95 98 94

114 87 104

108 101 87

94 103 101

105 90

The point estimate for the price of all one way tickets from Atlanta to Chicago is $101.77.

Interval Estimates

Point estimate

101.77

(

101.77

The level of confidence, x, is the probability that the interval estimate contains the population parameter.

When the sample size is at least 30, the sampling distribution for is normal.

0.025 0.95 -1.96 0 1.96 0.025

95% of all sample means will have standard scores between z = -1.96 and z = 1.96

The maximum error of estimate E is the greatest possible distance between the point estimate and the value of the parameter it is, estimating for a given level of confidence, c.

When n > 30, the sample standard deviation, s, can be used for .

Find E, the maximum error of estimate for the one-way plane fare from Atlanta to Chicago for a 95% level of confidence given s = 6.69.

n = 35,

You are 95% confident that the maximum error of estimate is $2.22.

Definition: A c-confidence interval for the population mean is

Find the 95% confidence interval for the one-way plane fare from Atlanta to Chicago. You found Left endpoint ( 99.55 = 101.77 and E = 2.22

Right endpoint

101.77

) 103.99

With 95% confidence, you can say the mean one-way fare from Atlanta to Chicago is between $99.55 and $103.99.

Sample Size

Given a c-confidence level and an maximum error of estimate, E, the minimum sample size n, needed to estimate , the population mean is

You want to estimate the mean one-way fare from Atlanta to Chicago. How many fares must be included in your sample if you want to be 95% confident that the sample mean is within $2 of the population mean?

You should include at least 43 fares in your sample. Since you already have 35, you need 8 more.

The t-Distribution

If the distribution of a random variable x is normal and n < 30, then the sampling distribution of is a t-distribution with n 1 degrees of freedom. Sampling distribution

n = 13 d.f. = 12 c = 90%

t

1.782

-1.782

The critical value for t is 1.782. 90% of the sample means (n = 13) will lie between t = -1.782 and t = 1.782.

Maximum error of estimate

In a random sample of 13 American adults, the mean waste recycled per person per day was 4.3 pounds and the standard deviation was 0.3 pound. Assume the variable is normally distributed and construct a 90% confidence interval for .

1. The point estimate is = 4.3 pounds

1. The point estimate is = 4.3 pounds 2. The maximum error of estimate is

Left endpoint

Right endpoint

) ( 4.3 4.152 4.15 < < 4.45 4.448 With 90% confidence, you can say the mean waste recycled per person per day is between 4.15 and 4.45 pounds.
