Use Hypothesis Testing and the data in the course materials folder to analyze the difference in milk production in California from 2000 through 2005 and decide if it was significantly different than 1,900 million pounds of milk per year. Please remember to: Develop a research question. Is California’s mean milk production in the years 2000 through 2005 different than 1,900 pounds? Formulate both a numerical and verbal hypothesis statement regarding your research issue. Verbal hypothesis The null hypothesis between 2000 and 2005 the California’s mean milk production is 1,900 million pounds per year. An alternate hypothesis may be the mean milk during 2000 to 2005 was not 1,900 million pounds per year. Numerical hypothesis: Null hypothesis: µ = 1,900
