AGENDA 2 test of goodness of fit – 13.1 Linear regression – 14.1, 14.2, 14.3, 14.5 Final schedule 2 9 / 2 6 / 1 5
2 TEST FOR GOODNESS OF FIT 3 9 / 2 6 / 1 5
Suppose we have the following data from interviewing people in New York City: Prefer Diet Coke: 30% ( p 1 =0.3) Prefer Diet Pepsi: 25% ( p 2 =0.25) Prefer Regular Coke: 30% ( p 3 =0.3) Prefer Regular Pepsi: 15% ( p 4 =0.15) You ask 200 people in Baltimore the same question and get this answer: Prefer Diet Coke: 50 Prefer Diet Pepsi: 40 Prefer Regular Coke: 60 Prefer Regular Pepsi: 50 4 9 / 2 6 / 1 5
ARE THE RESPONSES IN BALTIMORE SIGNIFICANTLY DIFFERENT FROM RESPONSES IN NEW YORK CITY OR DO THEY FOLLOW THE SAME DISTRIBUTION? 5 9 / 2 6 / 1 5
2 TEST FOR GOODNESS OF FIT H 0 : probabilities in Baltimore are also p 1 , p 2 , p 3, p 4 H a : at least one of the probabilities in Baltimore differs from p 1 , p 2 , p 3, p 4 6 9 / 2 6 / 1 5

2 TEST FOR GOODNESS OF FIT When to use: To test if the data comes from a specified distribution. 1. Test the following null and alternative hypotheses: H 0 : the population has a specified distribution H a : population does not have the specified distribution 2. Define k intervals for the test 3. Record observed frequency (f i ) for each interval and calculate expected frequency (E i ) 4. Calculate the chi-square statistic 8 9 / 2 6 / 1 5
EXAMPLE 1 A supervisor predicts that the number of phone calls at his call center follow a Poisson distribution with mean 4.7 calls per minute. His boss asks him to take 100 samples and confirm his belief. Here is the data: is the supervisor right?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
