Lecture Notes IEOR 165 | George Shanthikumar Tu W Th 2-4:30 pm | 3113 Etcheverry New topic: Hypothesis Testing (1) Say something about population behavior (2) Collect data & characterize the population. (3) Estimate the parameters by MOM or MLE Hypothesis Testing example: E.g. Avg UCB SAT score is 1440. Prove/disprove. E.g. Consulting salary is 120k So we randomly sample data. Big Question: How do we verify data? Answer: We find the 99% confidence interval for the mean salary. If 120k is within this confidence interval, then it may be true. After proving/disproving, we need to give an alternative conclusion. E.g. mean is > or < 120k. (1) Test for population Mean Population x with unknown mean = [ ] μ E x Somebody claims that = μ μ0 where μ0 is a numerical value specified. (2) Objective: Verify this claim. (3) To do this, we first consider an alternative hypothesis / prove that it’s wrong. 3 possibilities: - Case 1: μ μ0 - : < Case 2 μ μ0 - : > Case 3 μ μ0 - - Case 1: - Null Hypothesis: = μ μ0 ( ) H0 - Alternative hypothesis: μ μ0 H1 - - Sample data: , …, x1 xn - Consider - % . . 1 α100 C I for μ - * , + * , x zα2 σn x zα2 σn if σ is known - , - * , + , - * , x tα2 n 1 sn x tα2 n 1 sn if σ is unknown
