H0: Null Hypothesis
Population mean=µ Population proportion=Ϭ
Graphical Tools
Line chart: trend over time Scatter diagram: relationship between two variables Bar chart: frequency for each category Histogram: frequency for each class of measured data (graph of frequency distr.) Box plot: graphical display based on quartiles, which divide data into 4 parts
Two-Tailed Tests
H1: The mean amount of time spent for the Internet is not equal to 5 hours. (Âµ ï‚¹ 5).
One-Tailed Tests
H1: The mean yearly salaries earned by full-time employees is more than \$45,000. (µ>\$45,000)
Reject Null Hypothesis (H0) If
Absolute value of test statistic* > critical value* Reject H0 if |Z Value| > critical Z Reject H0 if | t Value| > critical t Reject H0 if p-value < significance level (alpha) Note that direction of inequality is reversed! Reject H0 if very large difference between sample statistic and population parameter in H0
Type I vs Type II Error
Alpha=α = P(type I error) = Significance level = probability that you reject true null hypothesis Beta= β = P(type II error) = probability you do not reject a null hypothesis, given H0 false
Wide Confidence Interval If
) small sample size(n) (2) large standard deviation (3) high confidence interval (ex: 99% confidence interval wider than 95% confidence interval) If you want narrow interval, you need a large sample size or small standard deviation or low confidence level.
Population
(1) population mean (average number of hours in life of all bulbs) (2) population proportion (% of all bulbs that are defective)
Qualitative
Categorical data: success vs. failure ethnicity marital status color zip code 4 star hotel in tour guide
Quantitative
Two cases Case 1: discrete Case 2: continuous
Discrete
(1) integer values (0,1,2,⬦) (2) example: binomial (3) finite number of possible values (4) counting (5) number of brothers (6) number of cars arriving at gas station
Continuous
Real numbers, such as decimal values (\$22.22) Examples: Z, t Infinite number of possible values Measurement Miles per gallon, distance, duration of time
Hypothesis Testing Confidence Intervals
Quantitative: Mean Qualitative: Proportion
