Estimating Parameters and Determining Sample Sizes Lecture (Elementary Statistics Module)

Estimating Parameters and Determining Sample Sizes Lecture (Elementary Statistics Module)

In this lecture we begin the study of methods of inferential statistics. The following are the major activities of inferential statistics, and this lecture introduces methods for the first activity of using sample data to estimate population parameters.

Major Activities of Inferential Statistics

  1. Use sample data to estimate values of population parameters (such as a population proportion or population mean).
  2. Use sample data to test hypotheses (or claims) made about population parameters.

Here are the lecture objectives:

  1. Estimating a Population Proportion
    • Construct a confidence interval estimate of a population proportion and interpret such confidence interval estimates.
    • Identify the requirements necessary for the procedure that is used, and determine whether those requirements are satisfied.
    • Develop the ability to determine the sample size necessary to estimate a population proportion.
  2. Estimating a Population Mean
    • Construct a confidence interval estimate of a population mean, and be able to interpret such confidence interval estimates.
    • Determine the sample size necessary to estimate a population mean.
  3. Estimating a Population Standard Deviation or Variance
    • Develop the ability to construct a confidence interval estimate of a population standard deviation or variance, and be able to interpret such confidence interval estimates.
  4. Bootstrapping: Using Technology for Estimates
    • Develop the ability to use technology along with the bootstrapping method to construct a confidence interval estimate of a population proportion, population mean, and population standard deviation and population variance.
