Sampling distributions Probability distribution of Y serves as a model of a population of quantities u 02 7r etc are parameters constants usually unknown which characterize properties of the distribution Y1 Y2 Y a random sample independent identically distributed random variables Statistic quantity calculated from Y1 Y2 Yn amp possibly known parameters usually for the purpose of estimating an unknown parameter Examples of statistics 1 Y 501 Y2Yn sample mean Y1 72Y2 72Yn 72 sample variance 2 1 3771 1 Statistics are themselves random variables with probability distributions
