All of the following about standard error are true except? (AIPG 2011)
|A||As the sample size increase S. E. increase|
|B||As the sample size increase S. E. decrease|
|C||It is a measure of the extent to which the sample means deviate from the true population mean|
|D||SE is inversely related to the square root of the sample size|
Ref: High Yield Biostatistics, Pg: 20 – 21, Ref: Park 22nd Ed., Pg. 793
SE is inversely related to the square root of the sample size hence as the sample increases the SE decreases (option b) and not increases (option a). The other statements regarding SE are true.
