Point Estimator A point estimator of a population parameter is a rule or formula that tells us how to use the sample data to calculate a single number that can be used as an estimate of the target parameter. © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc

Point Estimation Provides a single value Based on observations from one sample Gives no information about how close the value is to the unknown population parameter Example: Sample mean x = 3 is the point estimate of the unknown population mean © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc

Interval Estimator An interval estimator (or confidence interval) is a formula that tells us how to use the sample data to calculate an interval that estimates the target parameter. © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc

Interval Estimation Provides a range of values Based on observations from one sample Gives information about closeness to unknown population parameter Stated in terms of probability Knowing exact closeness requires knowing unknown population parameter Example: Unknown population mean lies between 50 and 70 with 95% confidence © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc

Confidence Interval According to the Central Limit Theorem, the sampling distribution of the sample mean is approximately normal for large samples. Let us calculate the interval estimator: That is, we form an interval from 1.96 standard deviations below the sample mean to 1.96 standard deviations above the mean. Prior to drawing the sample, what are the chances that this interval will enclose µ, the population mean? © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc

19
**© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc**

Confidence Interval If sample measurements yield a value of that falls between the two lines on either side of µ, then the interval will contain µ. The area under the normal curve between these two boundaries is exactly .95. Thus, the probability that a randomly selected interval will contain µ is equal to .95. © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc

20
**Confidence Coefficient**

The confidence coefficient is the probability that a randomly selected confidence interval encloses the population parameter - that is, the relative frequency with which similarly constructed intervals enclose the population parameter when the estimator is used repeatedly a very large number of times. The confidence level is the confidence coefficient expressed as a percentage. © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc

21
**© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc**

95% Confidence Level If our confidence level is 95%, then in the long run, 95% of our confidence intervals will contain µ and 5% will not. For a confidence coefficient of 95%, the area in the two tails is .05. To choose a different confidence coefficient we increase or decrease the area (call it ) assigned to the tails. If we place /2 in each tail and z/2 is the z-value, the confidence interval with coefficient coefficient (1 – ) is © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc

22
**Conditions Required for a Valid Large-Sample Confidence Interval for µ**

1. A random sample is selected from the target population. 2. The sample size n is large (i.e., n ≥ 30). Due to the Central Limit Theorem, this condition guarantees that the sampling distribution of is approximately normal. Also, for large n, s will be a good estimator of . © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc

Note: When is unknown and n is large (n ≥ 30), the confidence interval is approximately equal to where s is the sample standard deviation. © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc

Small Sample Unknown Instead of using the standard normal statistic use the t–statistic in which the sample standard deviation, s, replaces the population standard deviation, . © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc

28
**Student’s t-Statistic**

The t-statistic has a sampling distribution very much like that of the z-statistic: mound-shaped, symmetric, with mean 0. The primary difference between the sampling distributions of t and z is that the t-statistic is more variable than the z-statistic. © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc

29
**© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc**

Degrees of Freedom The actual amount of variability in the sampling distribution of t depends on the sample size n. A convenient way of expressing this dependence is to say that the t-statistic has (n – 1) degrees of freedom (df). © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc

Sampling Error In general, we express the reliability associated with a confidence interval for the population mean µ by specifying the sampling error within which we want to estimate µ with 100(1 – )% confidence. The sampling error (denoted SE), then, is equal to the half-width of the confidence interval. © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc

48
**Sample Size Determination for 100(1 – ) % Confidence Interval for µ**

In order to estimate µ with a sampling error (SE) and with 100(1 – )% confidence, the required sample size is found as follows: The solution for n is given by the equation © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc

**Sample Size Determination for 100(1 – ) % Confidence Interval for p**

In order to estimate p with a sampling error SE and with 100(1 – )% confidence, the required sample size is found by solving the following equation for n: The solution for n can be written as follows: Note: Always round n up to the nearest integer value. © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc

**Finite Population Correction Factor**

In some sampling situations, the sample size n may represent 5% or perhaps 10% of the total number N of sampling units in the population. When the sample size is large relative to the number of measurements in the population (see the next slide), the standard errors of the estimators of µ and p should be multiplied by a finite population correction factor. © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc

56
**Rule of Thumb for Finite Population Correction Factor**

Use the finite population correction factor when n/N > .05. © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc

Simple Random Sample If n elements are selected from a population in such a way that every set of n elements in the population has an equal probability of being selected, the n elements are said to be a simple random sample. © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc

63
**Stratified Random Sampling**

Stratified random sampling is used when the sampling units (i.e., the units that are sampled) associated with the population can be physically separated into two or more groups of sampling units (called strata) where the within-stratum response variation is less than the variation within the entire population. © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc

64
**© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc**

Systematic Sample Sometimes it is difficult or too costly to select random samples. For example, it would be easier to obtain a sample of student opinions at a large university by systematically selecting every hundredth name from the student directory. This type of sample design is called a systematic sample. Although systematic samples are usually easier to select than other types of samples, one difficulty is the possibility of a systematic sampling bias. © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc

65
**Randomized Response Sampling**

Randomized response sampling is particularly useful when the questions of the pollsters are likely to elicit false answers. One method of coping with the false responses produced by sensitive questions is randomized response sampling. Each person is presented two questions; one question is the object of the survey, and the other is an innocuous question to which the interviewee will give an honest answer. © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc
