Chapter 7: Sampling Distributions and Estimations

Difficulty Level: Advanced Created by: CK-12


Have you ever wondered how the mean, or average, amount of money per person in a population is determined? It would be impossible to contact 100% of the population, so there must be a statistical way to estimate the mean number of dollars per person in the population.

Suppose, more simply, that we are interested in the mean number of dollars that are in each of the pockets of ten people on a busy street corner. The diagram below reveals the amount of money that each person in the group of ten has in his/her pocket. We will investigate this scenario in this chapter.

Chapter Summary
