Statistics note: How does sample size affect precision of estimates?

In the previous post we learned that a sample statistic (e.g., a sample mean) is used to estimate a population parameter (e.g., the population mean), and the standard error of the sample statistic indicates the amount of precision around the estimate of the population parameter. A small standard error indicates that a sample statistic estimates a population parameter with high
