l l Measures of Central Tendency Tendency
Average observation. 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 Yvariable is dependent. l Xvariables 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 (straightline) relations imply unitbyunit links. unitbyunit l Multiplicative (curvedline) 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

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). ...
