# Central Limit Theorem

The Central Limit Theorem (CLT) is a fundamental concept in statistics with far-reaching implications across various fields. It states that the sampling distribution of the sample mean approaches a normal distribution as the sample size increases, regardless of the shape of the population distribution. This theorem is central to statistical inference, providing a foundation for estimating population parameters and conducting hypothesis tests. Understanding the CLT is essential for practitioners in fields such as economics, psychology, and quality control, as it underpins many statistical techniques used for data analysis and decision-making.
