Quants & Stats - Hypothesis Testing

Postby namratatwr94 » Fri Jun 16, 2017 4:51 am

I have a doubt in Hypothesis Testing that while applying z-value to calculate Confidence Interval, the following two formulas are given in Schwezer :

1) Mean +- z value * standard deviation
2) Mean +- z value * standard error

How do we know when to use which of these two formulas for calculating confidence interval?

When you are calculating confidence interval of the sample, the right formula is to use standard error. As we know from sampling distribution, the mean of the sample is the mean of the population while the standard deviation of the sample is calculated using standard error. The correct formula is (2)
