# Hypothetical population - less variability in x direction

In order to understand the sampling distribution associated with the slope coefficient, it is valuable to visualize the impact changes in the sample and population have on the slope coefficient. Here, reducing the variance associated with the *explanatory* variable around the line changes the variability associated with the slope statistics.

Instructions

**100 XP**

- Look at the plot that has been drawn for you.
- Swap
`popdata`

for`even_newer_popdata`

in the sampling code, and redraw the plot. - Set the x-axis limits from -17 to 17 (so they are the same as before).
- Look at the new plot. How is it different?
