7 Hypothesis Testing

Using Statistics

The Concept of Hypothesis Testing

Computing the p-value

The Hypothesis Test

Pre-Test Decisions

7-3

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Describe the role of sampling in hypothesis testing

Identify Type I and Type II errors and how they conflict with each other

Interpret the confidence level, the significance level and the power of a test

Compute and interpret p-values

Determine the sample size and significance level for a given hypothesis test

Use templates for p-value computations

Plot power curves and operating characteristic curves using templates

7-4

A hypothesis is a statement or assertion about the state of nature (about the true

value of an unknown population parameter):

= 100

The accused is guilty

100

A hypothesis is either true or false, and you may fail to reject it or you may

reject it on the basis of information:

The power depends on the distance between the value of the parameter under

the null hypothesis and the true value of the parameter in question: the greater

this distance, the greater the power.

The power depends on the population standard deviation: the smaller the

population standard deviation, the greater the power.

The power depends on the sample size used: the larger the sample, the greater

the power.

The power depends on the level of significance of the test: the smaller the level

of significance,, the smaller the power.

Rejection Region

numbers that will lead us to reject the null hypothesis in case the

test statistic falls within this range. The rejection region, also

called the critical region, is defined by the critical points. The

rejection region is defined so that, before the sampling takes

place, our test statistic will have a probability of falling within

the rejection region if the null hypothesis is true.

Nonrejection Region

test statistic should fall within this region. The nonrejection region is

x = 31.5

It seems reasonable to reject the null hypothesis, H 0: = 28, since the hypothesized

value lies outside the 95% confidence interval. If we are 95% sure that the

population mean is between 30.52 and 32.58 minutes, it is very unlikely that the

population mean will actually be 28 minutes.

Note that the population mean may be 28 (the null hypothesis might be true), but

then the observed sample mean, 31.5, would be a very unlikely occurrence. There

is still the small chance (= 0.05) that we might reject the true null hypothesis.

represents the level of significance of the test.

7-34

Nonrejection Region

If the observed sample mean falls within the nonrejection region, then you fail

to reject the null hypothesis as true. Construct a 95% nonrejection region

around the hypothesized population mean, and compare it with the 95%

confidence interval around the observed sample mean:

The nonrejection region and the confidence interval are the same width, but

centered on different points. In this instance, the nonrejection region does not

include the observed sample mean, and the confidence interval does not include

the hypothesized population mean.

and 2.5% below 27.02 and 2.5% above 28.98 (a two-tailed test).

nonrejection region, with the remaining 5% in two rejection

regions.

Example 7-5

An automatic bottling machine fills cola into two liter (2000 cc) bottles. A consumer advocate wants to test the

null hypothesis that the average amount filled by the machine into a bottle is at least 2000 cc. A random sample of

40 bottles coming out of the machine was selected and the exact content of the selected bottles are recorded. The

sample mean was 1999.6 cc. The population standard deviation is known from past experience to be 1.30 cc.

Test the null hypothesis at the 5% significance level.

Statistical Significance

While the null hypothesis is maintained to be true throughout a hypothesis

test, until sample data lead to a rejection, the aim of a hypothesis test is

often to disprove the null hypothesis in favor of the alternative hypothesis.

This is because we can determine and regulate , the probability of a Type I

error, making it as small as we desire, such as 0.01 or 0.05. Thus, when we

reject a null hypothesis, we have a high level of confidence in our decision,

since we know there is a small probability that we have made an error.

A given sample mean will not lead to a rejection of a null hypothesis unless

it lies in outside the nonrejection region of the test. That is, the nonrejection

region includes all sample means that are not significantly different, in a

statistical sense, from the hypothesized mean. The rejection regions, in turn,

define the values of sample means that are significantly different, in a

statistical sense, from the hypothesized mean.

A certain kind of packaged food bears the following statement on the package: Average net weight 12 oz.

Suppose that a consumer group has been receiving complaints from users of the product who believe that they are

getting smaller quantities than the manufacturer states on the package. The consumer group wants, therefore, to

test the hypothesis that the average net weight of the product in question is 12 oz. versus the alternative that the

packages are, on average, underfilled. A random sample of 144 packages of the food product is collected, and it is

found that the average net weight in the sample is 11.8 oz. and the sample standard deviation is 6 oz. Given these

findings, is there evidence the manufacturer is underfilling the packages?
