a. a probability distribution of the count of a certain characteristic of interest for all possible random samples of size ?ntaken from a population

b. a probability distribution of the sample proportions of a certain characteristic of interest for all possible random samples of size ?n taken from the population

c. a probability distribution of a population proportion of a certain characteristic of interest for all possible random samples of size ?n taken from a sample

d. a probability distribution of the sample means of a certain characteristic of interest for all possible random samples of varied sizes taken from the population

Answer #1

**ANSWER:**

**Ans:: Option (B)**

Here the explanation:

**The definiiton of sampling distribution of proportion
goes like this:**

Suppose that **we draw all possible samples of size
n from a given population**. Suppose further that

1) If Pete is correct that the population proportion p=
0.30 describe the sampling distribution of sample
proportions for simple random samples of n = 150 drawn
from the population of college and university students in
California.
The words “describe the sampling distribution” mean that you
need to specify the shape, center and spread of
the sampling distribution. You should also state whether or not the
conditions are met for the process you are using and show a
calculation to...

Select the correct definition of the sampling error from the
choices below.:
errors that result from having a poor experimental design
the difference between the true population parameter and the
sample statistic
errors that are the result of using a biased sample
the systematic errors that occur during data collection and
analysis
the standard deviation of the sampling distribution

solve the following and mark the correct statement.
i)
In which case could the sampling distribution of sample means
be expected to be normally distributed?
A) The parent population is skewed, the sample size is
20.
B) The parent population is jumbled, the sample size is
20
C) The parent population is jumbled, the sample size is
50.
D) The parent population is uniform, the sample size is
20.
ii)
Recent English test scores were approximately normally
distributed with a...

Five different sampling methods are described below.
Choose the one that defines stratified sampling.
1. Select members of a population by asking for volunteers, or
otherwise find a sample that is easy to obtain and is not based on
randomness or chance.
2. Order the population, select a random starting point and
interval, then select individuals every interval from the starting
point until the desired sample size is achieved.
3. Take a sample of size ?n from a population in...

A simple random sample size of n=800 is obtained from a
population whose size is N=10,000,000 and whose population
proportion with a specified characteristic is p=.32.
a)describe the sampling distribution
b) What is the probability of obtaining x=350 or more
individuals with the characteristic?

a Since the sampling distribution is approximately normal, use
the NORM.DIST function to determine the probability that a randomly
selected sample of size n = 60 will have a sample proportion of
females less than .2, i.e., 20%.
b. Suppose the company claims that they randomly selected from
this population and the random sample contains 8 females out of 60.
Draw a data distribution.
c. considering the last part, do you believe that the company
truly randomly sampled from the...

Sampling with replacement
A researcher is interested in drawing a sample of potential
voters from a population of 10 individuals. She settles on a sample
size of 5, and sends out random invitations to 5 of the voters, by
picking their names randomly from a list. How many possible samples
could she draw from this population?
Sampling without replacement
The researcher realizes that she made a mistake! She
accidentally asked the selected some of the same voters more than
once....

The mean cost for college textbooks per semester is $636 with a
standard deviation of $117. If all possible random samples of size
49 are taken from this population, determine the following:
a) name of the Sampling Distribution?
b) mean and standard error of the sampling distribution of the
mean (use the correct name and symbol for each)?
c) percent of sample means that are less than $600?
d) probability that sample means fall between $500 and $800?
e) Below...

Suppose
Jack
and
Diane
are each attempting to use a simulation to describe the sampling
distribution from a population that is skewed
right
with mean
50
and standard deviation
15.
JackJack
obtains 1000 random samples of size
n=55
from the population, finds the mean of the means, and
determines the standard deviation of the means.
Diane
does the same simulation, but obtains 1000 random samples of
size
n=40
from the population. Complete parts (a) through (c) below.
a) Describe the...

6. An application of the sampling distribution of the
sample proportion
Of the 21.4 million U.S. firms without paid employees, 32% are
female owned. [Data source: U.S. Census Bureau; data based on the
2007 Economic Census.]
A simple random sample of 408 firms is selected. Use the
Distributions tool to help you answer the questions that
follow.
The probability that the sample proportion is within ±.01 of the
population proportion is:
a. 0.5000
b. 0.3328
c. 0.0160
d. 0.1664
Suppose...
