Point Estimate—(for a population proportion is the sample proportion symbolized by ) a single # that is our ―best guess‖ for the parameter, does not tell how close the estimate is likely to be to the parameter (an interval estimate is more useful, it incorporates a margin of error, which helps to gauge accuracy of the Point Estimate). EXof the possible responses, 627 picked ―definitely or probably should be,‖ and 546 picked ―probably or definitely should not be.‖ 627+546=1173 for the population size and 627 answered definitely or probably so for the point estimate. A POINT ESTIMATE alone may be highly inaccurate, especially with a small sample. Interval Estimate—is an interval of numbers within which the parameter value is believed to fall (indicates precision by giving an interval of #’s around the point estimate). Confidence Interval—(are a function of 3 things: data in the sample, the confidence level & sample size) An interval of values (range) that contains the most believable (plausible) value for the population parameter. Is constructed by taking a point estimate and adding & subtracting a MoE. The MoE is based on the SE of the sampling distribution of that point estimate. The CI tells us the ―likelihood‖ the ―most informative estimation‖ method constructs an interval of #’s called the confidence interval, within the unknown parameter value is believed to fall. Ex. 95% confidence interval says the we have a ―95% confidence‖ (refers to long-run interpretation) in the long run about 95% of those intervals would give correct results, containing the population proportion. Has standard deviation called standard error, also has mean equal to population proportion. Is approximately normal distribution, for large random samples, because of the central limit theorem. That the interval contains the parameter (must compromise between the desired margin of error and the desired confidence of a correct inference) to achieve greater confidence; we make the sacrifice of a larger margin of error and wider confidence interval. MoE for C.I. found by multiplying the critical value by the se C.I. for pop proportion is CI for population mean (1.96 Critical Value for 95%, 2.576 for 99%, 1.645 for 90% Confidence Intervals) √ A GOOD Estimator of a parameter has 2 desirable properties—1) A good estimator has a sampling distribution that is centered at the parameter, in the sense that the parameter is the mean of that sampling distribution, an estimator with this property is said to be unbiased. 2) A good estimator has a small standard error compared to the other estimators. MoE—(depends on the standard error of the sampling distribution of the point estimate) also how close the sample proportion should be to the population proportion. MoE also measures how accurate the point estimate is likely to be in estimating the parameter. (Increases as the confidence level increases; Decreases as the sample size increases) z-score—measures the number of standard errors between the sample proportion p and the null hypothesis p0 In a test of hypothesis, the null hypothesis is that the population mean is less than or equal to 45 and the alternative hypothesis is that the population mean is greater than 45. The test is to be made at the 2.5% significance level. A sample of 81 elements selected from this population produced a mean of 47.3 and a standard deviation of 4.5. What is the critical value of z? 1.96 *Both Z & T statistics have the form test – Completely Randomized Design—subjects are randomly assigned to one of the treatments. Null Hypothesis—is a statement that the parameter takes a particular value (means ―no effect‖ or of no consequence).(in hypothesis testing, the null hypothesis is a claim about a population parameter that is assumed to be false until it is declared true) whenever the null is not rejected the alt. is rejected. A null hypothesis can only be rejected at the 5% significance level if and only if: a 95% confidence interval does not include the hypothesized value of the parameter. The null & alternative divide all possibilities into two non-overlapping sets. A two-tailed test is one where results in either of two directions can lead to rejection of the null hypothesis Alternative hypothesis states that the parameter falls in some alternative range of values (where the burden of proof lies). Is a claim about a population parameter that will be true if the null hypothesis is false. Statistical inference–uses sample statistics to make decisions and predictions about population parameters. There are, generally speaking, two types of statistical inference: sample estimation and population estimation. Ordinal Variable—is a categorical variable for which the categories are ordered from low to high in some sense. Case-Control Study–a retrospective study. Subjects who have a response outcome of interest(ex cancer serves as
cases) other subjects not having that outcome serve as (controls). The cases and controls are compared on an explanatory variable, like whether they were smokers.

Standard Error—estimated value. Is an estimated standard deviation of a sampling distribution (Depends on the sample size) Error Probability—the probability that the method results in an incorrect inference, that the data generates a confidence interval that does NOT contain the population proportion. Degrees of freedom—(df) , one less than the sample size. Statistic—describes a sample Parameter—describes a population (i.e. σ & μ) Mean—one way to summarize the center of the observations for a quantitative variable. Bayesian statistics–Statistical inference based on the subjective definition of probability. Proportion—equals the # of items in a category divided by the sample size, it summarizes the relative frequency of observations in a category for a categorical variable. Properties of of t distribution—t score is slightly larger than a z score 1) the t distribution is bell shaped and symmetric about 0 2) The probabilities depend on the degrees of freedom, df. The t distribution has a slightly different shape for each distinct value of df, and different t-scores apply for each df value. 3) The t distribution has thicker tails and is more spread out than the standard normal distribution. The larger df value the closer it gets to the standard normal. When df is about 30 or more, the t-score & z-score distributions are nearly identical. 4) A t-score multiplied by the standard error gives the margin of error for a confidence interval for the mean. T confidence interval does NOT work well when the data contains extreme outliers. However, the t distribution when estimating the mean accounts for the extra variability due to using the sample SD s to estimate the population SD in finding a standard error. As the sample size increases, the t distribution becomes more similar to the normal distribution. Cohort Study Design—at the beginning none have disease, group of subjects is studied over time. Matched Pairs—each subject in one sample is matched with a subject on the other sample. (i.e. a set of married couples with the men in one sample and the women in the other) two observations for a particular subject, because they both
come from the same person.

Crossover Design (Really Good Design) a matched pair’s design in which subject’s crossover during the experiment from using one treatment to using another treatment.

Dependent samples—when the two samples have the same subjects, they are also dependent if each subject in one sample is naturally paired with a subject in the other(i.e. husband in one sample and wife in the other) Robust—a statistical method is said to be robust with respect to a particular assumption if it performs adequately even when that assumption is violated. Confidence intervals for a mean using the t distribution are robust against most violations of the normal population assumption. (t confidence interval score is not robust to violations of the random sampling assumption. Factors in determining a study’s sample size1) desired precision (measured by MoE) 2) Confidence level, which determines the z-score or t-score in the sample size formulas 3) Variability in the data 4) financial Significance Level—is a number such that we reject H0 if the P-value is less or equal to that number (most common significance level is 0.05). ≤0.05 reject the H0 if >0.05 Do not reject. To avoid bias we select the significance level before looking at the data. REMEMBER—the smaller the p-value the stronger the evidence against the null hypotheses. Test Statistic—is calculated by taking the difference between the sample proportion and the null proportion and dividing it by the standard error. Use the value of the test statistic to find the two-tail probability from the standard normal distribution to the left and right of the test statistic value. The p-value tells use that if the null hypotheses were true, a proportion of ## samples would fall at least this far from the null hypotheses. Hypothesis—a statement about the population, usually of the form that a parameter takes a particular numerical value or falls in a certain range of values. Significance test (―test‖ for short) is a method for using data to summarize the evidence about a hypothesis. A significance test merely indicates whether the particular parameter values in H0 (such as μ=0) is plausible. A confidence interval is more informative, because it displays the entire set of believable values. Exif a high proportion of the astrologers’ predictions are correct, the data might provide strong evidence against the hypothesis that p=1/3 in favor of an alternative hypothesis representing the astrologers’ claim the p>1/3. P-value—is a tail probability beyond the observed test statistic value. A small P-value usually below .05 provides strong evidence against the null hypothesis or the result is statistically significant, the probability that the test statistic equals the observed value or a value even more extreme. It is calculated by presuming that the null hypothesis H 0 is true. Considered ―convincing if less than 0.01 Assumptions for a 95 & 99% population proportion C.I. 1) Data obtained by randomization (such as a random sample or a randomized experiment) and a large enough sample size of at least 15 successes and failures. Assumptions for a C.I. for a population mean 1) Data obtained by randomization 2) An approximately normal population distribution. Sample Size Needed for Large-Sample C.I. for a Proportion- For a 95% C.I. for a proportion p to be valid, you should have at least 15 successes & 15 failures. and – if it is less than 15 successes and failures add 2 to the success and 4 to the total count. Find the needed sample size to estimate a pop. Proportion EXstudents at a school were surveyed, and it was estimated that 26% of students abstain from drinking alcohol. To estimate this proportion in your school, how large a random sample would you need to estimate it to within 0.04 with probability 0.99, if before conducting the study (a) you are unwilling to predict the proportion value at your school and (b) you use the results from the surveyed school as a guideline. (a)=.50(1-.50)*2.582/.042=1040 (b)=.26(1-.26)*2.582/.042=800. So strategy (a) would be inappropriate because it overestimates the sample size. EX estimating pop. meanan estimate is needed of the mean acreage of farms in a city. A 95% C.I. should have a MoE of 35 acres. A study 10 years ago in this city had a sample SD of 190 acres for farm size. About how large of a sample of farms is needed? 190 2(1.96)2/352=113 acres. Part (b) the sample size of 113 acres abovehowever, the sample in fact has a SD 290 acres instead of 190. What is the MoE for a 95% C.I. for the mean acreage of farms? √(2902(1.96)2/113=53.5 so when the SD increases from 190 to 270 the MoE increases from 35 to 53.5 EXHow large a sample size is needed to estimate the mean annual income of all people in a certain county, correct to within \$1,200 with probability of 0.99?

The sample p is 0.268060 and the 95% CI is (0.24955, 0.28656) Explain how to interpret the ―Sample p‖ and the 95% CIThe ―sample p‖ is the proportion of all respondents who believe in reincarnation, 590/2201=0.27. The ―95% CI‖ is the 95% confidence interval and it means that we can be 95% confident that the population proportion falls between .25 and .29 Using the CI shown, find the 95% CI for the population proportion who do not believe in reincarnation1–.29=.71 for the lower bound and 1–.25=.75 for the upper bound. The 99% CI would be wider than a 95% CI because the 99% CI z-score is higher than the 95% CI z-score, thus making the margin of error for a 99% CI larger than the margin of error for a 95% CI.

Since this less than alpha=. Assumptions: We aren't told if the 12 were a random sample. 1. B) Give the critical value and margin of error used in the interval. Therefore. E) Conduct a test of the hypothesis that there is no difference in the mean strength for the two music types. . the subjects wear headphones playing classical music. Interpret the interval.196 Rock–n=12 mean=31.94) Set up a hypothesesH0: μ1=μ2 and Ha: μ1≠μ2 What is the p-valueuse 2SampTTestp=.292 Difference–n=12 mean=. There are 12–1=11 df. 420 said ―no‖ each time.n=404 mean=2.05.235 = 0. such as pretest/posttest for each person or husband/wife pairs. 0. D) What is the design of this study called? This is a cross-over experiment.0460.465 . The results (in pounds/square inch) are given below. The interval is (0. When the data are matched pairs. H0: D = 0 Ha: D ≠ 0 3. we can be 95% confident there is a difference. it is a reasonable assumption. 90 said ―yes‖ on the first survey and ―no on the second survey. The Classical music and Rock music samples are dependent (paired). the test statistic is T = 2. 2. We aren't told this either.004 which means the H0 should be rejected.005. For dependent samples. the samples that result are DEPENDENT When the samples we want to compare are paired in some natural way. a more appropriate form of analysis is to not compare two separate variables. but they did randomize treatment order. The P-value is 0. If p-value < a reject the null hypothesis.249 4. 5.2. DATA–Classical–n=12 mean=31. Mean of Differences = Difference of Means…For dependent samples.244 SD=1. and 70 said ―no‖ on the first survey and ―yes‖ on the second survey.52. We conclude there is sufficient evidence to support that there is a difference between the strengths measured during the two types of music. where strength was measured by squeezing pressure. A) Construct a 95% confidence interval for the true difference in the mean grip strength while listening to the two music types. Second Y N First Y N Estimate the probability of favorable rating for (i) last month. we reject the null hypothesis.235 SD=. since they contain the same subjects. since n < 30.201. The MoE is 0. The strength differences need to be normally distributed. and during the other listen to rock and roll. Which order they hear the different music types was determined at random.
