Equality of Two Normal Populations: The normal or Gaussian distribution is a continuous symmetric distribution that follows the familiar bell-shaped curve. One of its nice features is that, the mean and variance uniquely and independently determines the distribution. Therefore, for testing the statistical equality of two independent normal populations, one must

Unformatted text preview: first perform the Lilliefors' Test for Normality to assess this condition. Given that both populations are normally distributed, then one must performing two more tests, namely the test for equality of the two means and the test for equality of the two variances. Both of these tests can be carried out by using the Test of Hypotheses for Two Populations...
