    What is the difference between sampling distribution and sample distribution?

    Can't get my head around it, and they both sound a lot like each other too

    Re: What is the difference between sampling distribution and sample distribution?

    You could refer to this post: ViSta: The Visual Statistics System

    What I learn from the post are:
    1. Sample Distribution derives from calculation/statistics using the original sample values. See Section 4 in the post.
    2. from the figure of Sample Distribution, you first speculate/determine which type of distribution it follows by observing the shape of the figure/curve;
    3. say it nearly follows normal distribution, then you use the original sample values to derive mean and standard deviation, two key parameters to model the density function of normal distribution;
    4. Sampling Distribution is then the distribution you just modeled in step 3. See Section 13 in the post.
