Perhaps to make this more clear, since I've recently learned that "sampling distribution variance" might be confusing, I should note that by that phrase I mean the Variance of the Mean (the average of the samples).
So, using the equation VAR_population = n * VAR_mean
Calculate the variance of the population.
I believe I've figured this out. I need to divide by (n-1) in order to calculate VAR_mean.My primary question is, in calculating the variance of the sampling distribution, do I divide the sum of squares by n or by (n-1)?
If anyone can, please point me to any references that discuss this, either in textbooks or journal articles.
