SD of Standardized Distribution - Intro to Descriptive Statistics

  • 0:00 - 0:04
    Now remember, when we calculate the z score of any value in the distribution,
  • 0:04 - 0:09
    we first subtract the mean which shifts the distribution without changing the
  • 0:09 - 0:15
    shape so that zero is now the mean. And when we divide by the standard
  • 0:15 - 0:21
    deviation, we then change the shape. Let's look at it this way. We have any
  • 0:21 - 0:27
    distribution, with mean, mu, and standard deviation, sigma. Which basically
  • 0:27 - 0:31
    means that sigma is one standard deviation away from the mean. After we
  • 0:31 - 0:36
    standardize this distribution, what is going to be the z-score of sigma? Well,
  • 0:36 - 0:43
    remember when we subtract mu, we shift it so that mu is now zero. So now, the
  • 0:43 - 0:48
    z-score of sigma is going to be sigma minus zero divided by sigma, which is
  • 0:48 - 0:55
    sigma divided by sigma, which is 1. So, the z-score of any value, that's one
  • 0:55 - 1:03
    standard deviation away from the mean, will then be 1 after we standardize it.
  • 1:03 - 1:07
    Which means that the new standard deviation of this normalized distribution, or
  • 1:07 - 1:10
    standard distribution, is 1.
