PROBABILITY AND STATISTICS Lab, Seminar, Lecture 4. Behavior of the sample average X-bar  The topic of 4th seminar&lab is the average of the population that has a certain characteristic.  This average is the population parameter of interest, denoted by the greek letter mu.  We estimate this parameter with the statistic x-bar, the average in the sample. Probability and statistics - Karol Flisikowski X-bar Definition 1 x   xi n i 1 Probability and statistics - Karol Flisikowski ...

HW #4 Name: 1. What is the difference between [pic] and[pic]? Between s and[pic]? (10 points) 2. Explain the difference between [pic] and [pic] and between [pic] and[pic]? (10 points) 3. Suppose that a random sample of size 64 is to be selected from a population having [pic] and standard deviation 5. (a) What are the mean and standard deviation of the [pic] sampling distribution? Can we say that the shape of the distribution is approximately normal...

Running head: MULTIPLE SAMPLE HYPOTHESIS TESTING Multiple Sample Hypothesis Testing RES342: Research 11 June 14, 2010 Multiple Sample Hypothesis Testing The purpose of this paper is to create a hypothesis based on two-sample tests. Two-sample tests compare two sample estimates with each other, whereas one-sample tests compare a sample estimate with a non-sample benchmark (Doane & Seward, 2007). The learning team has chosen to create a hypothesis testing using the wages and wage earners...

Hypothesis Testing: Two-Sample Case for the Mean Many cases in the social sciences involve a hypothesis about the difference between two groups (i.e. men and women, control and experiment). We analyze statistics from two samples, and the hypothesis and confidence interval would deal with the difference between two population means. The following factors are important in hypothesis testing: 1. probability theory 2. the sampling distribution of the statistic 3. the errors inherent...

Calculating Sample Size Types of Samples   Subjective or Convenience Sample  - Has some possibility of bias - Cannot usually say it is representative - Selection made by ease of collection Simple Random Sample  - No subjective bias - Equal chance of selection; e.g., select the fifth chart seen on every third day - Can usually be backed to say it is representative Systematic Sample  - Is a random sample - Equal chance of selection due to methodology; e.g., computer-generated list of ...
