Test statistic: z= N N 1 p1 - p22 - 1 p1 - p22 pq pq n2 Matched Pairs Requires simple random samples of matched pairs and either the number of matched pairs is n 7 30 or the pairs have differences from a population with a distribution that is approximately normal. d: Individual difference between values in a single matched pair md: Population mean difference for all matched pairs d: Mean of all sample differences d sd: Standard deviation of all sample differences d n: Number of pairs of data d - md Test statistic: t = where df = n - 1 sd 1n Probability Rare Event Rule: If, under a given assumption, the probability of an...
