Statistical Inference
  • The purpose of statistical inference is to obtain
  • information about a population from
  • information contained in a sample.
  • A population is the set of all the elements of
  • interest.
  • A sample is a subset of the population.
slide6
Statistical Inference
  • The sample results provide only estimates of
  • the values of the population characteristics.
  • With proper sampling methods, the sample
  • results can provide “good” estimates of the
  • population characteristics.
  • A parameter is a numerical characteristic of a
  • population.
the electronics associates sampling problem
The Electronics Associates Sampling Problem
  • Often the cost of collecting information from a sample is substantially less than from a population,
  • Especially when personal interviews must be conducted to collect the information.
simple random sampling finite population
Simple Random Sampling:Finite Population
  • Finite populations are often defined by lists such as:
    • Organization membership roster
    • Credit card account numbers
    • Inventory product numbers
simple random sampling finite population1
Simple Random Sampling:Finite Population
  • A simple random sample of size n from a
  • finite population of size N is a sample
  • selected such that each possible sample of
  • size n has the same probability of being
  • selected.
simple random sampling finite population2
Simple Random Sampling:Finite Population
  • Replacing each sampled element before
  • selecting subsequent elements is called
  • sampling with replacement.
  • Sampling without replacement is the
  • procedure used most often.
simple random sampling
Simple Random Sampling
  • Random Numbers: the numbers in the table are random, these four-digit numbers are equally likely.
simple random sampling infinite population
Simple Random Sampling:Infinite Population
  • Infinite populations are often defined by an ongoing process whereby the elements of the population consist of items generated as though the process would operate indefinitely.
simple random sampling infinite population1
Simple Random Sampling:Infinite Population
  • A simple random sample from an infinite
  • population is a sample selected such that the
  • following conditions are satisfied.
    • Each element selected comes from the same
    • population.
    • Each element is selected independently.
simple random sampling infinite population2
Simple Random Sampling:Infinite Population
  • In the case of infinite populations, it is
  • impossible to obtain a list of all elements
  • in the population.
  • The random number selection procedure
  • cannot be used for infinite populations.
slide15
We refer to as the point estimator of the
  • population mean .

Point Estimation

  • In point estimation we use the data from the
  • sample to compute a value of a sample statistic
  • that serves as an estimate of a population
  • parameter.
slide16
is the point estimator of the population
  • proportion p.

Point Estimation

  • sis the point estimator of the population standard
  • deviation .
point estimation
Point Estimation
  • Example: to estimate the population mean, the population standard deviation and population proportion.
sampling error
Sampling Error
  • When the expected value of a point estimator
  • is equal to the population parameter, the point

estimator is said to be unbiased.

  • The absolute value of the difference between an

unbiased point estimate and the corresponding

population parameter is called the

sampling error.

sampling error1
Sampling Error
  • Sampling error is the result of using a subset
  • of the population (the sample), and not the
  • entire population.
  • Statistical methods can be used to make
  • probability statements about the size of the
  • sampling error.

Sampling Error

  • The sampling errors are:
example st andrew s
Example: St. Andrew’s

St. Andrew’s College

receives 900 applications

annually from

prospective students.

The application form

contains a variety of information

including the individual’s scholastic aptitude

test (SAT) score and whether or not the

individual desires on-campus housing.

example st andrew s1
Example: St. Andrew’s

The director of admissions

would like to know the

following information:

  • the average SAT score

for the 900 applicants,

and

  • the proportion of applicants that want to live on campus.
example st andrew s2
Example: St. Andrew’s

We will now look at three

alternatives for obtaining

The desired information.

  • Conducting a census of

the entire 900 applicants

  • Selecting a sample of 30

applicants, using a random number table

  • Selecting a sample of 30 applicants, using Excel
slide24
Conducting a Census
  • If the relevant data for the entire 900 applicants were in the college’s database, the population parameters of interest could be calculated using the formulas presented in Chapter 3.
  • We will assume for the moment that conducting a census is practical in this example.

Simple Random Sampling
  • Now suppose that the necessary data on the

current year’s applicants were not yet entered

in the college’s database.

  • Furthermore, the Director of Admissions must
  • obtain estimates of the population parameters of
  • interest for a meeting taking place in a few hours.

slide28
Simple Random Sampling
  • The applicants were numbered, from 1 to 900, as their applications arrived.
simple random sampling using a random number table
Simple Random Sampling:Using a Random Number Table
  • Taking a Sample of 30 Applicants
  • Because the finite population has 900 elements, we will need 3-digit random numbers to randomly select applicants numbered from 1 to 900.
  • We will use the last three digits of the 5-digit random numbers in the third column of the textbook’s random number table , and continue into the fourth column as needed.
simple random sampling using a random number table1
Simple Random Sampling:Using a Random Number Table
  • Taking a Sample of 30 Applicants
    • The numbers we draw will be the numbers of
    • the applicants we will sample unless the
    • random number is greater than 900 or
    • the random number has already been used.
    • We will continue to draw random numbers
  • until we have selected 30 applicants for our
  • sample.

Simple Random Sampling:Using a Computer
  • Taking a Sample of 30 Applicants
  • Computers can be used to generate random

Sampling Distribution offor SAT Scores

What is the probability that a simple

random sample of 30 applicants will provide

an estimate of the population mean SAT score

that is within +/-10 of the actual population mean ?

In other words, what is the probability that

will be between 980 and 1000?

Step 1: Calculate the z-value at the upper

endpoint of the interval.

z = (1000 - 990)/14.6= .68

Step 3: Calculate the z-value at the lower

  • Suppose we select a simple random sample

of 100 applicants instead of the 30 originally

considered.

slide57
Relationship Between the Sample Size and the Sampling Distribution of
  • Whenever the sample size is increased, the

standard error of the mean is decreased.

With the increase in the sample size to n = 100,

the standard error of the mean is decreased to:

Relationship Between the Sample Size and the Sampling Distribution of
  • We follow the same steps to solve for
  • P(980 << 1000)
  • when n = 100 as we showed earlier when n = 30.
  • Recall that when n = 30,
  • P(980 << 1000) = .5034.
slide60
Relationship Between the Sample Size and the Sampling Distribution of
  • Because the sampling distribution with n = 100
  • has a smaller standard error, the values of have
  • less variability and tend to be closer to the
  • population mean than the values of with n = 30.
  • Now, with n = 100, P(980 << 1000) = .7888.

Properties of Point Estimators
  • Before using a sample statistic as a point estimator, statisticians check to see whether the sample statistic has the following properties associated with good point estimators.
  • Unbiased
  • Efficiency
  • Consistency

Properties of Point Estimators
  • Unbised

If the expected value of the sample statistic is equal to the population parameter being estimated, the sample statistic is said to be an unbiased estimator of the population parameter.

  • Examples of Unbiased and Biased Point Estimators
slide85
Properties of Point Estimators
  • Efficiency

Given the choice of two unbiased estimators of the same population parameter, we would prefer to use the point estimator with the smaller standard deviation, since it tends to provide estimates closer to the population parameter.

The point estimator with the smaller standard deviation is said to have greater relative efficiency than the other.

Properties of Point Estimators
  • Consistency

A point estimator is consistent if the values of the point estimator tend to become closer to the population parameter as the sample size becomes larger.

other sampling methods
Other Sampling Methods
  • Stratified Random Sampling(分層隨機抽樣)
  • Cluster Sampling(部落抽樣)
  • Systematic Sampling(系統抽樣)
  • Convenience Sampling(便利抽樣)
  • Judgment Sampling(判斷抽樣)
slide89
Stratified Random Sampling
  • The population is first divided into groups of
  • elements called strata.
  • Each element in the population belongs to one
  • and only one stratum.
  • Best results are obtained when the elements
  • withineach stratum are as much alike as possible
  • (i.e. a homogeneous group).
stratified random sampling
Stratified Random Sampling
  • Diagram for Stratified Random Sampling
slide91
Stratified Random Sampling
  • A simple random sample is taken from each
  • stratum.
  • Formulas are available for combining the
  • stratum sample results into one population
  • parameter estimate.
slide92
Stratified Random Sampling
  • Advantage: If strata are homogeneous, this
  • method is as “precise” as simple random
  • sampling but with a smaller total sample size.
  • Example: The basis for forming the strata
  • might be department, location, age, industry type,
  • and so on.
slide93
Cluster Sampling
  • The population is first divided into separate
  • groupsof elements called clusters.
  • Ideally, each cluster is a representative small-
  • scale version of the population (i.e.
  • heterogeneous group).
  • A simple random sample of the clusters is then
  • taken.
  • All elements within each sampled (chosen)
  • cluster form the sample.
cluster sampling
Cluster Sampling
  • Diagram for ClusterSampling
slide95
Cluster Sampling
  • Example: A primary application is area
  • sampling, where clusters are city blocks or
  • other well-defined areas.
  • Advantage: The close proximity of elements
  • can be cost effective (i.e. many sample
  • observations can be obtained in a short time).
  • Disadvantage: This method generally requires a
  • larger total sample size than simple or stratified
  • random sampling.
slide96
Systematic Sampling
  • If a sample size of n is desired from a population
  • containing N elements, we might sample one
  • element for every n/N elements in the population.
  • We randomly select one of the first n/N elements
  • from the population list.
  • We then select every n/Nth element that follows in
  • the population list.
slide97
Systematic Sampling
  • This method has the properties of a simple
  • random sample, especially if the list of the
  • population elements is a random ordering.

Advantage: The sample usually will be easier to

identify than it would be if simple random

sampling were used.

Example: Selecting every 100th listing in a

telephone book after the first randomly selected

listing

slide98
Convenience Sampling

It is a nonprobability sampling technique.

Items are included in the sample without known

probabilities of being selected.

The sample is identified primarily by convenience.

Example: A professor conducting research might

use student volunteers to constitute a sample.

slide99
Convenience Sampling
  • Advantage: Sample selection and data collection
  • are relatively easy.
  • Disadvantage: It is impossible to determine how
  • representative of the population the sample is.
slide100
Judgment Sampling
  • The person most knowledgeable on the subject of
  • the study selects elements of the population that
  • he or she feels are most representative of the
  • population.
  • It is a nonprobability sampling technique.
  • Example: A reporter might sample three or four
  • senators, judging them as reflecting the general
  • opinion of the senate.
slide101
Judgment Sampling
  • Advantage: It is a relatively easy way of
  • selecting a sample.
  • Disadvantage: The quality of the sample results
  • depends on the judgment of the person selecting
  • the sample.
