➔ what sampling distribution do we use if we have quantitative data?
➔ what sampling distribution do we use if we have categorical data?
➔ what does p-hat estimate in a sample proportion?
➔ what are possible values of p-hat?
➔ what is the purpose of a sampling distribution?
see the pattern when we take many samples and compute the sample statistic
➔ why are statistics random variables?
they come from random samples
➔ what is the distribution of a statistic called?
➔ does p-hat have a binomial distribution?
➔ what is the mean of the distribution of p-hat?
➔ what is the standard error of the distribution of p-hat?
sq rt (p(1-p)/n)
➔ conditions for sampling distribution of p-hat
p≥ 15 AND n(1-p) ≥ 15
➔ what does x-bar estimate?
