Middle observation. Most common observation. l Median Mode l l l Comparing Measures of Central Tendency Tendency l Uniform population has similar measures. measures. l Nonuniform population has dissimilar measures. measures. Measures of Dispersion l Range l High versus low. l Variance and Standard Deviation l l Coefficient of Variation l Arithmetic mean of the squared deviation from the mean. from l Standard deviation is the square root of the variance. the Standard deviation divided by mean. l Risk/reward ratio. l Hypothesis Tests l Hypothesis Testing l Means Tests for Large Samples l Type I error: Incorrect rejection of true hypothesis. hypothesis. l Type II error: Incorrect failure to reject false hypothesis. false z statistic measures difference from statistic mean in standardized units in big mean samples. samples. t statistic measures difference from mean statistic in standardized units in small samples. in l Means Tests for Small Samples l l Deterministic and Statistical Relations Relations l Economic Relations Economic l Scatter Diagrams l Deterministic relation is true by definition, e.g., TR = PQ. definition, l Statistical relation exists if variables are related. variables Y-variable is dependent. l X-variables are independent. l Regression analysis is a powerful tool for the study of causal relations. tool l Regression Analysis l Linear and Multiplicative Models Linear (straight-line) relations imply unit-by-unit links. unit-by-unit l Multiplicative (curved-line) relations l Least Squares Method l imply nonlinear links. imply Best fitting line minimizes scatter about the regression line. about l Standard Error of the Estimate (SEE) SEE is the standard deviation of the dependent Y variable after controlling for all X variables. l SEE increases with scatter about the regression line. regression l SEE=0 if each data point is on the regression line. regression l l Judging Regression Model Fit Model l Confidence Intervals Y = Estimated Y ± 2 SEE with 95% Estimated SEE confidence. confidence. l Y = Estimated Y ± 3 SEE with 99% Estimated SEE confidence. confidence. l l Coefficient of Determination (R2) R2 = 100% means complete explanation. explanation. l R2 = 0% means no explanation. l r = 1 means perfect correlation. l r = 0 means no correlation. l Correlation Goodness of Fit l Corrected Coefficient of Determination l Adjusts R2 downward for small downward samples. samples. l Tells if R2 is statistically significant. F Statistic l t statistics l Judging Variable Judging Significance Significance l Interpreting t statistics Interpreting l t statistics compare a sample characteristic to the standard characteristic deviation of that characteristic. deviation A calculated t statistic more than two suggests a strong effect of X two on Y (95 % confidence). on l A calculated t statistic more than three suggests a very strong effect three of X on Y (99 % confidence). ...
