Identifying the Target Parameter In the previous 2 chapters we focused on confidence intervals and tests
of hypothesis about the mean of a single population. However, in many practical cases the experiment is
performed to compare two (or more) populations
Variables and Data Recall our notion of a variable, a characteristic or property that varies from one unit to
another unit in our population of interest. All variables fall in one of two categories: Quantitative: data

Continuous Random Variables Up until today, most of the random variables we have looked at have been
discrete random variables. However, many types of data are better described using continuous
distributions. The graphical form of the probability distribu

The primary disadvantage of using the range to compare variability of data sets is that the two data sets can
have the same range and be vastly different with respect to data variation. Also, the
