Behavior of the sample average
The topic of 4th seminar&lab is the average of the
population that has a certain characteristic. This average is the population parameter of interest, denoted by the greek letter mu. We estimate...
The CentralLimitTheorem (CLT) is what our parametric inferential statistics are based upon. The question is, if you draw samples from a population and calculate the means of those samples, how close can you expect them to be to the population mean? The CLT addresses...
“when”, “where”, “what”… It's a precise statement of what the research project will achieve.
RQ4 Why is determining the decision problem a critical step in any research endeavor?
It’s an important step because it allows the researcher to determine whether it is really necessary to employ the research...

IEOR 4106: Notes on Brownian Motion
We present an introduction to Brownian motion, an important continuous-time stochastic process that serves as a continuous-time analog to the simple symmetric random walk on the one hand, and shares fundamental properties...

must first understand two important concepts: 1) sampling distributions of statistics, and 2) the centrallimittheorem. Sampling Distributions Imagine drawing (with replacement) all possible samples of size n from a population, and for each sample, calculating a statistic--e.g., the sample mean. The...

(b) Why is the normality assumption not a problem, despite the very small value of p? (Data are from Flying 120, no. 11 [November 1993], p. 31.)
Because the sample size is very large, p is normally distributed by the CentralLimitTheorem (CLT). The larger the sample the...

Data Types, Data Display and
• Descriptive Statistics vs. Inferential Statistics
Descriptive Statistics - Data summarization
Inferential Statistics - Use of sample data to make
inferences about a population
time. | Time-series - data collected over different time periods |
* Data can be obtained via existing sources & experimental/observational studies
Experimental - when values of factors can be set or manipulated | Observational - when factors of interest cannot be controlled |
