Sampling Distributions You have seen probability distributions of various types The normal distribution is an example of a continuous distribution that is often used for quantitative measures such as weights heights etc The binomial distribution is an example of a discrete distribution because the possible outcomes are only a discrete set of values 0 l n The value of the binomial random variable is the number of successes out of a random sample of 11 trials in which the probability of success on a particular trail is 7 The Binomial Distribution as 21 Sampling Distributions The nature of the binomial distribution makes it a sampling distribution In other words the value of the binomial random variable is derived from a sample of size n from a population You can think of the population as being a set containing 0 s and 1 s with a 1 representing a success and 0 representing a failure The term success does not necessarily imply something good nor does failure imply something bad The sample is obtained as a sequence of 11 trials with each trial being a draw from the population of 0 s and 1 s Such trials are called Bernoulli trials On the first trial you draw a value from 0 1 with P17r Then you draw again in the same way and do this repeatedly a total of n times So your sample will be a set such as 1 1 0 1 0 1 in the case for n6 This set has 4 1 s and 2 0 5 so the value of the binomial random variable is y4 The value of the binomial distribution is the sum of the outcomes from the trials that is the number of 1 s The Binomial Distribution as 21 Sampling Distribution Recall that the binomial probability formula is nl 397iy l 7239 quot y P02 successes in 11 trials yKn y Where 7 probability of success on single trial and n number or trials Mean of the binomial distribution quot7 Variance of the binomial distribution 71750 7r This probability is derived from the sampling distribution of the number of successes that would result from a very large number of samples The Binomial distribution as 21 Sampling Distribution Consider a population that consists 60 of 1 s and 40 of 0 s If you draw a value at random you get a 1 with probability 6 and a 0 with probability 4 Such a draw would constitute a Bernoulli trial with Pl6 Suppose you draw a sample of size n and add up the value you obtain This would give you a binomial random variable Now suppose you do this again and again for a very large number of samples The conceptual results make up a conceptual population Here are the histograms that correspond to the population for values ofn equal to l 2 3 6 10 and 20 Notice how the shapes of the histograms change as 11 increases The distributions become more moundshaped and symmetric Relative Frequency O Mmbo lm Histotram of B1 6 Distribution Successes Relative

Distributions and Sampling Distributions One of the most use il statistics is the sample mean 7 Statistical inference based on 7 is derived from its sampling distribution If the population from Which the sample was obtained is norm distributed With mean p and variance 62 then the sampling distribution of y is normal Moreover the mean of the sampling as mean p and variance 6 n If y NNUwZ i1n then

only approximately normal but the distribution becomes more nearly normal as 11 increases This is the Central limit Theorem Central Limit Theorem If y is a random variable with mean u and variance 02
