Stat 312: Lecture 13 Two-sample tests Moo K. Chung mchung@stat.wisc.edu March 6, 2003 Concepts 1. The P -value is the smallest level of signiFcance at which H 0 would be rejected. P -value α reject H 0 at level α . P -value > α do not reject H 0 at level α . The smaller the P -value, the easier to reject H 0 . 2. Let X 1 , ··· , X n and Y 1 , ··· , Y m be two indepen- dent samples with mean μ X , μ Y and variance σ 2 X , σ 2 Y respectively. Assume n and m to be large . The test statistic for testing H 0 : μ X = μ Y vs. H 1 : μ X 6 = μ Y Z = ¯ Y - ¯ X q σ 2 X /n + σ 2 Y /m N (0 , 1) . 3. Let X 1 , ··· , X n and Y 1 , ··· , Y m be two inde- pendent samples with X i N ( μ X , σ 2 X ) and Y j N ( μ Y , σ 2 Y ). Then we can show that Z = ¯ Y - ¯ X q σ 2 X /n + σ 2 Y /m N (0 , 1) . In-class problems Example 8.11. 47 out of 102 doctors did not know the generic name for the drug methadone. Let p be the proportion of doctors who knew the generic name. Determine the
