biased estimator

the spread of its sampling distribution. Determined by size of random sample: larger sample - smaller spread, size irrelevant when population 10+ times larger than sample
sampling distribution of p̂
Describes how the sample proportion varies in all possible samples from the population
mean of a sampling distribution of p̂
μ is equal to the population proportion of p. That is, p̂ is an unbiased estimator of p
