Sampling Distributions 

This unit will talk about sampling distributions of the sample mean and the sample proportion. When we calculate the mean and the standard deviation for the population data, we know it is constant. However, when we calculate the mean and standard deviation for the sample data, it is a random variable. Since a random variable has a probability distribution, the concept of probability distribution will be extended for the mean, standard deviation, mode, and so forth...  

Study this unit very well since it will help you better understand inferential statistics.
