Example from Table 2.1 data Y jk number of chronic medical conditions for women that use similar practitioner services. j = 1 ’town’; j = 2 ’country’ k = 1 , 2 , . . . , k j where k 1 = 26 and k 2 = 23. For ’town’ , ¯ Y 1 · = 1 . 423 and SD = 1 . 17. For ’country’, ¯ Y 2 · = 0 . 913 and SD = 0 . 9. We can try to model Y 0 jk s as independent Poisson ( θ j ) . θ j rate for group j . Recall that if Y i Poisson ( θ ) , the log-likelihood function is l ( θ ; Y ) = X i Y i log ( θ ) - θ X i Y i + X i log ( y i !) Do women have similar levels in the two groups? UNM

Hypothesis testing problem, H 0 : θ 1 = θ 2 = θ vs H 1 : θ 1 6 = θ 2 Two models : Under H 0 , Y jk Poisson ( θ ) . Second model, Y jk Poisson ( θ j ) (nested models). Under H 0 , l 0 = l ( θ ; Y ) = 2 X j = 1 k j X k = 1 y jk log ( θ ) - θ - log ( y jk !) The MLE is ˆ θ = 2 X j = 1 k j X k = 1 y jk / N ; N = 26 + 23 = 49 UNM

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
