The group means and SDs are 50 and 9 for sex offenders and 45 and 3 for violent offenders.

We do not know whether the pattern of results found in our samples accurately reflects what is happening in the population or if it is the result of _____ error.
504.
Normal distribution theory tells us that for large samples, 95% of sample means lie within how many standard deviations above and below the population mean?
505.
Consider the following data to answer the next 3 questions.

You have the following sample data; a sample size of 7, a mean of 8 and a standard deviation of 4.2. From this, what is the standard error?
506.
You still have the same data (a sample size of 7, a mean of 8 and a standard deviation of 4.2) plus the standard error. Next how would you calculate the 95% confidence intervals?
507.
Finally, you still have the same data (a sample size of 7, a mean of 8 and a standard deviation of 4.2) plus the standard error and you know how to calculate the 95% confidence interval. Thus what is the 95% confidence interval?
508.
In another study you have a standard deviation of 12, a mean of 20 and a sample size of 50. What is the standard error?
509.
The standard error has been calculated as 2.6 and the sample mean is 10.00. Thus the 95% confidence interval lies between:
510.
To calculate confidence intervals we need make use of:
511.
A sample mean is a ____ estimate and we do not know how close it is to the population mean.
512.
