BNAD 276 Notes Week 2  Measurement=observable actions  Placebo o Single blind- the subject does not know what group they are in o Double blind- the subject and experimenter do not know what group the subject is in  Continuous variable- variables that can assume any value between any two numbers. Ex: height, distance  Discrete variable- variables that can only assume whole numbers. NO intermediate values between the whole number. Ex: eggs, number of kids in class  Categorical data- also called qualitative date. A set of observable observations where any single observation is a word or number representing a class or category. Ex: gender, type of dog  Numeric Data- Quantitate data. A set of observations where any single observation is a number represented a count or amount. Ex: Temperature  4 Levels of measurement o nominal- classification, differs in kind, names of categories. Not numeric at all. Ex: categories, weakest, names, gender, jersey number, ethnic group o ordinal- order, rankings, differs in degree. More like a number but not a number still. Ex: place in a race, grade in school o interval- measureable, differs in amount, equal intervals. Ex: SAT score, IQ score, GPA, year, time o ratio- measureable differs in amount with a true zero. Ex: time to do something, distance, height, number of kids, bank account.  Farenheight temperature- interval  Kelvin- ratio because kelvin scale has absolute 0  Time series design- each observation represents a measurement at some point in time. Repeated measurement allows us to see trends  Cross sectional design- each observation represents a measurement at some point in time. Comparing lets us see differences  Census- measures each person in the specific population  Sample- measures a subset of population  Parameter- measurement or characteristic of the population o Usually unknown (estimated) o Represented by Greek letters  Statistic- numerical value calculated form a sample usually represented by roman letters o Descriptive statistic- organizing and summarizing data o Inferential statistic- generalizing beyond actual observations. Making inferences based on data collected  Simple random sampling- population has equal probability of being included  Sample frame - how you define population  Systematic random sampling- a probability sampling technique that involves selecting every person you are sampling from  Stratified sampling- sampling technique that involved dividing a sample into subgroups  Cluster sampling- divide a population subgroup into subgroups. Can either measure everyone or select subjects.  Non random sampling o Convenience sampling – sampling technique that involves people. A non-random sample and vulnerable to bias.  Snowball sample- non-random technique in which 1 or more members of a population are located and used to lead research to another member of the population. Used when we have no way to find them  Judgement sample- technique that involves sampling people who an expert said would be useful to sample  Scatterplot- displays relationship between two continuous variables  Correlation- measure of how two variable co-occur and also can be used for prediction o Range between -1 and +1. Closer to 0 the weaker the relationship and worse the prediction. o -1 and +1 are the same! The negative refers to if the values of 1 variable goes up the value for the other goes down. And positive values are if the one goes up, the three goes up o 0.9-0.7= strong predictor o 0.4-0.6= medium predictor o 0.1-0.3= weak predictor o 0= no relationship
