Simple Random Sample

**Sampling distribution of mean
**

IF: • data are normally distributed with mean µ and standard deviation σ, and • random samples of size n are taken, • THEN:

**The sampling distribution of the sample means is also normally distributed.
**

What is the mean of all of the sample means ? What is the standard deviation of the sample means ?

**Mean and Standard Deviation of X
**

mean = µ x = µ σ standard deviation = σ x =

n

If the population is finite of size N then

finite population correction factor

σx =

n

N −n N −1

n ≥0.05 N

is also called standard error of the mean

Averages are less variable than individual observations

**Example: mean wages
**

The mean wage per hour for all 5000 employees is $ 17.50 and the standard deviation is $ 2.90. Let x be the mean wage per hour for a random sample of 30 employees. What is the mean and standard deviation of x ? N = 5000 , µ = $ 17.50, σ = $ 2.90 The mean of the sampling distribution is µ x = µ = $ 17.50 n = 30, N = 5000, so n/N = 30/5000 = 0.006 < 5% so we use

σ 2.90 σx = = = $ 0.529 n 30

**Central Limit Theorem
**

• Even if data are not normally distributed, as long as you take “large enough” samples, the sample averages will at least be approximately normally distributed. • Mean of sample averages is still µ • Standard error of sample averages is still ∀ σ /√ n. • In general, “large enough” means more than 30 measurements.

**Distribution of X when sampling from a normal distribution
**

has a normal distribution with µx = µ mean = and σ standard deviation (standard error) = σ x =

X

n

Example

• Adult nose length is normally distributed with mean 45 mm and standard deviation 6 mm. • Take random samples of n = 4 adults. • Then, sample means are normally distributed with mean 45 mm and standard error 3 mm [from 6/ = 6/2].

**Using empirical rule...
**

• 68% of samples of n=4 adults will have an average nose length between 42 and 48 mm. • 95% of samples of n=4 adults will have an average nose length between 39 and 51 mm. • 99% of samples of n=4 adults will have an average nose length between 36 and 54 mm.

**What happens if we take larger samples?
**

• Adult nose length is normally distributed with mean 45 mm and standard deviation 6 mm. • Take random samples of n = 36 adults. • Then, sample means are normally distributed with mean 45 mm and standard error 1 mm [from 6 / 36 = 6/6].

**Again, using empirical rule...
**

• 68% of samples of n=36 adults will have an average nose length between 44 and 46 mm. • 95% of samples of n=36 adults will have an average nose length between 43 and 47 mm. • 99% of samples of n=36 adults will have an average nose length between 42 and 48 mm. • So … the larger the sample, the less the sample averages vary.

What happens if data are not normally distributed ?

Let’s investigate that, too …

distribution of original population

distribution of x for 2 observations n=2

distribution of x for 10 observations n=10

distribution of x for 25 observations n=25

**Central Limit Theorem
**

If the sample size (n) is large enough, X has a normal distribution with mean = µ x = µ and σ standard deviation = σ x =

n

regardless of the population distribution (normal or not ! )

n ≥ 30

**Sampling Distribution of a Sample Statistic
**

• Sampling Distribution of a Sample Statistic: The distribution of values for a sample statistic obtained from repeated samples, all of the same size and all drawn from the same population

Example: Consider the set {1, 2, 3, 4}: 1) Make a list of all samples of size 2 that can be drawn from this set (Sample with replacement) 2) Construct the sampling distribution for the sample mean for samples of size 2 3) Construct the sampling distribution for the minimum for samples of size 2

**Table of All Possible Samples
