  Statistical Terms in Sampling
The distribution of an infinite number of samples of the same size as the sample in your study is known as the sampling distribution.
When we keep the sampling distribution in mind, we realize that while the statistic we got from our sample is probably near the center of the sampling distribution (because most of the samples would be there) we could have gotten one of the extreme samples just by the luck of the draw.
For starters, we assume that the mean of the sampling distribution is the mean of the sample, which is 3.75.

 Sampling Distribution Demo
Sampling distributions will provide us with an explanation of how to measure variability in a sample, and thus the probability of observing a particular sample.
Whether the population distribution is normal, positively or negatively skewed, unimodal or bimodal in shape, the sampling distribution of the mean will have a normal shape.
Notice that because we are taking a sample of values from all parts of the population, the mean of the samples will be close to the center of the population distribution.

 Statistics Glossary - Basic Definitions
A sample is generally selected for study because the population is too large to study in its entirety.
The sampling distribution describes probabilities associated with a statistic when a random sample is drawn from a population.
The sampling distribution is the probability distribution or probability density function of the statistic.

 Encyclopedia :: encyclopedia : A posteriori   (Site not responding. Last check: )
While MAP estimation shares the use of a prior distribution with Bayesian statistics, it is not generally seen as a Bayesian method.
This is because MAP estimates are point estimates, whereas Bayesian methods are characterized by the use of distributions to summarize data and draw inferences.
This is especially so when the posterior distribution does not have a simple analytic form: in this case, the posterior distribution can be simulated using Markov chain Monte Carlo techniques, while optimization to find its mode(s) may be difficult or impossible.

 Bayesian probability - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bayesian probability contrasts with frequency probability, in which probability is derived from observed frequencies in defined distributions or proportions in populations.
The theory of statistics and probability using frequency probability was developed by R.A. Fisher, Egon Pearson and Jerzy Neyman during the first half of the 20th century.
An intuitive interpretation of the parameters of a Beta distribution is that of imagined counts for the two events.

 PinkMonkey.com Statistics Study Guide 8.4 Sampling Distribution
Therefore, the sampling distribution is the statistic calculated for a large number of random samples drawn from the same population.
In this manner we obtain the distribution of the statistic, which is the sampling distribution.
We thus conclude that the more the sample means (statistics) included in the sampling distribution, the more correct the chances of the mean of the sampling distribution becoming an estimate of the population mean (parameter).

 Sampling Distribution
In other words, the distribution of the sample mean gets more concentrated around the population mean as the sample size increases.
In fact, all statistics, such as the sample median, the sample standard deviation, and the sample proportion, have sampling distributions.
Recall that we are planning to select a random sample of 100 students from a college where 40% of the students work at least part time.

 FASIM : Fragment assembly의 simulation을 수행할 수 있는
To reflect such situation, a probabilistic model for biased sampling distribution was developed by using experimental data set derivied from a microbial genome project.
This is caused by the observation that biased clone distribution always happens due to various reasons – incomplete fracturing of genome, biased insertion of fragments into vectors and improper cloning of some insert/vector combinations (Myers 1999b).
To create a more realistic program, a probabilistic model of biased sampling distribution was applied to generate synthetic shotgun data sets from known genome sequences.

 Standard 5-1 : NCES Statistical Standards
In the case of a stratified sample design with disproportionate sample allocation, the use of appropriate case weights will reduce the biases in means and totals, but will not necessarily correct biases in standard errors.
When estimates are compared to one another based on exploratory research and presented in descriptive reports, observed deviations in either direction are of interest and the rejection region lies within both tails of the distribution of the test statistic.
If a statistically significant difference for a total group under study is observed, but similar subgroup differences of the same magnitude are associated with smaller sample sizes and/or larger standard errors and are not statistically significant, this may be noted.

 Intro to Sampling Distribution of the Mean Tutorial
Goals of this tutorial: This tutorial will help you determine how accurate a sample mean is likely to be, and how this accuracy is related to the sample size.
Brief reviews of the normal distribution and the Central Limit Theorem are included as supplemental materials.
To make best use of this tutorial, you should have an understanding of basic statistics such as the mean and standard deviation and know how to find probabilities on a normal distribution, either with a z table or a computer program.

Sampling Distribution of the Gini Index from a Skew Normal
According to Chakrabarthy (1982), "the Lorenz curve and the Gini index have remained the most popular and powerful tool in the analyses of size distribution of income".
A major statistical limitation of Gini Concentration Ratio is the absence and the intractability of appropriate sampling distribution (Hart, 1971, Nigard Sandstrom, 1981) We find that the exact sampling distribution of the Gini Concentration Index for a sample from a Skew Normal population has an Extended Skew Normal distribution.
