Parametric vs. Nonparametric Determined by shape of distribution and data level of dependent variable Ratio & interval data are tested PARAMETRICALLY Generally follow a “bell-shaped” curve Emphasis is on center and width of curve Nominal & ordinal data are tested NON- PARAMETRICALLY Essentially have only counts in categories Center and width make little sense Not normally distributed Distinctions Combination of levels of independent and dependent variables require different types of tests

Chi-Square Goodness of Fit Test Checks to see how well a set of data fit the model for a particular “expected” probability distribution Compares the observed frequency distribution to what would be expected if the H0 were true. F0 = observed frequencies – Fe = expected frequency H0: fo = fe (the data comes from a population with a specific distribution) H1: fo fe (not H0) The test statistic is: The critical value is a chi-square value with ( c – 1) degrees of freedom , where c is the number of categories. ( 29 - = e e o f f f Σ Χ 2 2 ( 29 - = E E O Σ Χ 2 2

Chi-Square Chi-Square Goodness of Fit Test The observed frequencies ( fo ) (or simply “O”) are the actual number of observations that fall into each class in a frequency distribution or histogram. The expected frequencies ( fe ) (or simply “E”) are the number of observations that are expected in each category….the expected distribution is also known for as the “hypothesized probability distribution”

Chi-Square Distribution Used in a frequency distribution to determine if the observed frequency differ significantly from expected frequency The major characteristics of the chi-square distribution are: It is positively skewed It is non-negative It is based on degrees of freedom When the degrees of freedom, change a new distribution is created Text, Appendix Table

Goodness of Fit Test Used to determine whether a frequency distribution fits a specific pattern Example; Manufacturer of running shoes wants to find out if customers have preference among styles. Example; Test whether there is a difference between four competing cold prevention medicines. Hypothesis testing procedure: Step 1: State the hypothesis Step 2: Select test statistic (Use Chi-Square for frequency distribution) Step 3: Find the critical value of Chi-Square Step 4: Compute the chi-Square test value Step 5: Make the decision
