# SAMPLING DISTRIBUTION

OBJECTIVES

## •defines the sampling distribution of the

sample mean for normal population with and
without replacement
•solves problems involving sampling
distributions of the sample mean
•Finds the mean and variance of the sampling
distribution of the sample mean.
INTRODUCTION
• Previously, we have learned how to construct the
probability distribution of a discrete random variable. We
have also learned how to compute the mean and standard
deviation of a discrete random variable. Moreover, we have
studied continuous probability distribution, the normal
distribution, the normal distribution and its application to
real-life problems.
• Now, we shall apply these concepts and we will study
another probability distribution of the sample means. The
study of sampling distribution of the sample means will be
the basis for making statistical inferences and testing
hypothesis.
DEFINITION OF TERMS
Sampling Error – An expected certain amount of error from using the sample. Obatined
by SE=Sample Mean – Population Mean 𝑆𝐸 = 𝜇𝑥ҧ − 𝜇

## Standard Error – The standard deviation of the sampling distribution

Unbiased estimator – average value determined over many different samples which is
equal to the population parameter.

Finding the Mean, Variance and Standard Deviation of
Sampling Distribution of the Sample Means

## • Suppose we have a population of size N with a mean 𝝁, and we draw

or select possible samples of size n from this population. Naturally,
we expect to get different values of the means for each sample. The
sample means may be less than, greater than or equal to the
population 𝝁.
• The sample means obtained will form a frequency distribution and
the corresponding probability distribution can be constructed. The
distribution is called the sampling distribution.
• How do we construct the sampling distribution of the sample means?
Study the following examples.
Example 1
A population consists of four values, (₱1, ₱5, ₱10, ₱20).
a. Compute the mean (μ),variance 𝜎 2 and the standard
deviation 𝜎
b. How many sample of size 2 (n = 2) is to be taken from this
population:? List them and compute the mean of each sample.
b.1With replacement
b.1.1 Construct the sampling distribution of the sample means.
b.1.2 Determine the mean (𝛍 ഥ𝒙 ), variance (𝝈𝟐 ഥ𝒙 ) and standard error
(𝝈ഥ𝒙 ) of the sample means.
b.2 Without replacement
b.2.1 Construct the sampling distribution of the sample means.
b.2.2 Determine the mean (𝛍 ഥ𝒙 ), variance (𝝈𝟐 ഥ𝒙 ) and standard error
(𝝈ഥ𝒙 ). of the sample means.
a. Compute the variance 𝜎 2 and the standard
Solution: deviation 𝜎 .
a. To compute the population variance and the standard deviation of
the population, proceed as follow:

b.1 How many sample of size 2 (n = 2) is to be taken from this
Solution: population:? List them and compute the mean of each sample.

b.1 Since the size of the population is 4, we have N=4. We shall draw a sample of 2 from
this population, n =2. Thus, the number of samples of size 2 with replacement that can be
drawn from this population is computed as follows: 𝑁, 𝑛 = 𝑁 𝑛 → 4,2 = 4 2 = 16.
The number of all samples of size 2 is 16. The table below shows the list of all possible
samples with their corresponding means.
