Chapter 8

8:1 Estimating with confidence
8:2 Estimating a Population proportion
Standard Error:

when the standard deviation of a statistic is estimated from data (page 487)
8:3 Estimating a Population Mean
One Sample Z Interval for a Populations Mean
page 499
Confidence Interval
(page 472)
for a parameter has 2 parts:
An interval calculated from the data, which has the form: estimate + or - margin of error
Margin of Error:
tells how close the estimate tends to be to the unknown parameter in repeated random sampling
Confidence level: which gives the overall success rate of the method for calculating the confidence interval.
That is, in the C% of all possibles samples, the method would yield an interval that captures the true parameter value.
Confidence Intervals: the Basics
Point Estimator:
is a statistic that provides an estimate of a population parameter. (page 469)
One Sample T interval for a Population Mean
page 507
Interpreting Confidence levels and Confidence Intervals
(page 474)
Confidence Level:
to say that we have a
95% confidence is shorthand for "95% of all possible samples of a given size from this population will result in an interval that captures the unknown parameter.
Confidence Interval:
to interpret a C% confidence
interval for an unknown parameter, say " we are
C% confident that the interval from ___ to ___
captures the actual value of the [population parameter in context]
Exercise #3 page 481
Calculating a confidence interval
The confidence interval for estimating a population parameter has the form
statistic + or - (critical value) *(Standard Deviation of statistic)
where the statistic we used is the piont estimator for the parameter.
Conditions for constructing a
Confidence Interval
the data come from a well-designed random samples or randomized experiment
that sampling distribution of the statistic is approximately Normal
individual observations are independent. when sampling without replacement, the sample size

Margin of error

Used when Standard Deviations and mean are

Used when Standard Deviation is
SRS or Randomized experiment
Population has a normal distribution or sample size is large (n > or = to 30)
check with the 10% condition: verify that the sample size is no more than 1/10 of the population size
