This means that for these parameter values observed data has higher probability of being observed. This chapter provides a handbook or summary of methods used in applied statistics to learn knowledge from data about the following parameters: (one sample continuous variable Y: parameter mean \mu) (one sample, 01 valued variable: probability p) (two independent samples, 01 variables: difference of probabilities) (two independent samples, 01 variables: pooled p, 2 by 2 table) (two independent samples, continuous variable Y: difference of means) (two independent samples, continuous variable Y: equal variances) (one sample, continuous variable: parameter \sigma) Bivariate continuous paired data (X,Y): difference of means Bivariate 01 valued: difference of probabilities, 2 by 2 table  #(ONE SAMPLE, CONTINUOUS VARIABLE Y:PARAMETER Mean ) Compute from sample: SAMPLE SIZE n , MEAN ( 29 M Y , STANDARD DEVIATION S For HYPOTHESIS TEST : H = COMPUTE ( 29 SAMPLE MEAN;TRUE MEAN Z TEST STATISTIC ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ; M Y Z M Y SE M Y  = ( 29 ( 29 SE M Y n = if known [ ] 2 VAR Y = ( 29 ( 29 SE M Y S n = if unknown is estimated by S SAMPLING DISTRIBUTION of ( 29 ( 29 ; Z M Y ASSUMING TRUE MEAN ( 29 0,1 NORMAL Z exact if Y Normal and known ( 29 0,1 NORMAL Z approximate by central limit theorem, known ( 29 0,1 NORMAL Z approximate if 40 n , estimated by S ( 29 1 degrees of freedom STUDENT n distribution if 40 n < , and estimated by S Rejection Region for hypothesis : H = is interval of values of ( 29 ( 29 ; Z M Y with (1) low specified probability under distributions above, and (2) maximum possible probability under specified appropriate alternative hypothesis of form , , < .
