1 1 Slide Slide Hypothesis Testing Part 2: Where are we?
2 2 Slide Slide Orienting Ourselves: We covered: Descriptive Statistics How to describe data: Visually (table and graphs) Numerically Probability Inferential Statistics Confidence Intervals Testing hypotheses about one population Testing hypotheses Today’s Class
3 3 Slide Slide Statistical Inference About Means and Proportions With Two Populations Inferences About the Difference Between Two Population Means: Independent Samples Inferences About the Difference Between Two Population Means: Matched Samples Inferences About the Difference Between Two Population Proportions
4 4 Slide Slide Abortions and Mental Health: Do abortions cause mental health problems? 5/study-abortions-dont-cause-mental-he alth-issues From the world of research… What were the two populations that were being studied?
5 5 Slide Slide Illustrative Example: Do people drive faster in Richmond or in Surrey? o How would you test this?
6 6 Slide Slide Estimating the Difference Between Two Population Means m 1 m 2 = difference between the mean speeds x 1 - x 2 = Point Estimate of m 1 m 2 Population 1 Traffic Speed Richmond m 1 = average speed of driver in Richmond Population 1 Traffic Speed Richmond m 1 = average speed of driver in Richmond Population 2 Traffic Speed, Surrey m 2 = average speed of driver in Surrey Population 2 Traffic Speed, Surrey m 2 = average speed of driver in Surrey Surrey Sample Simple random sample of n 2 Surrey drivers x 2 = average speed among Surrey Sample Richmond sample Simple random sample of n 1 Richmond drivers x 1 = average speed among Richmond sample
7 7 Slide Slide Inferences About the Difference Between Two Population Means Hypothesis Tests About m 1 m 2 : µ 1 ≤ µ 2 : µ 1 2 One-Tailed : µ 1 = µ 2 : µ 1 ≠µ 2 Two-Tailed
8 8 Slide Slide ? = ´ ? 1 ´ ? 2 ? 1 2 ? 1 + ? 2 2 ? 2 Test Statistic Inferences About the Difference Between Two Population Means
9 9 Slide Slide Difference Between Two Population Means: s 1 and s 2 Unknown Example: Do people in Surrey drive faster than people in Richmond? Sample Size Sample Mean Sample Std. Dev. Sample #1 Surrey Sample #2 Richmond 24 drivers 2 8 drivers 65 km/hr 63 km/hr 2.56 km/hr 1.81 km/hr
10 10 Slide Slide Point estimate of m 1 - m 2 = Point Estimate of m 1 - m 2 where: m 1 = average speed of Surrey drivers m 2 = average speed of Richmond drivers = 65 - 63 = 2 km/hr Okay. So there’s a 2 km /hr difference between the two sample averages. Does that mean there’s a difference between the average speed among the population of Richmond and Surrey drivers? x x 1 2 -
11 11 Slide Slide Wait. Why are we using ‘t’ instead of ‘z’? And if we’re using a t distribution, how are we going to calculate degrees of freedom?

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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
