This session reviews the relationship between population and sample, and introduces the concept of point estimation. The uncertainty about any estimated value is discussed with reference to making clinical decisions based on summary values identified in clinical trials and the single sample t-test is introduced.


By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Identify population parameters associated with different statistical models
• Discuss the concept of point estimation of population parameters based on sample statistics
• Calculate estimates for the population parameters of the Binomial, Poisson and Normal statistical models
• Explain the uncertainty associated with point estimation
• Discuss these issues in the context of clinical decision making
• Carry out a single-sample t-test
