    Shape of Sampling Distribution




    What will happen to the shape of the sampling distribution of sample mean as the sample size of a random sample increases? Shape-wise.

    Thanks so much.

    I would say that as the sample size becomes large, the sampling distribution looks like a normal distribution. This is because of the central limit theorem. I referenced this page: http://pages.uoregon.edu/aarong/teac...ne/node19.html

    Yup, it should normalize. Pretty bell curve.
