Estimation of Population Mean and Population Proportion

Module Overview

In this module we will explore the concept of a confidence interval to estimate an unknown population parameter. Specifically, we will obtain confidence interval estimates for unknown population mean and for unknown population proportion. We will also find how large a sample we would require to estimate these parameters for any given amount of accuracy and confidence level.

Learning Objectives:

  • Construct and interpret a confidence interval
  • Student’s t-distribution
  • Standard error and margin of error
  • Sample size estimation
