University of Washington Applied StatistiCs and Experimental Design Normal and Related Distributions I x2 and F Tests Power Sample Size amp Confidence Intervals Fritz Sgholz F aII Qluari eriZOQB Hypothesis Testing We have addressed the question Does the type of flux affect SIR Formally we have tested the null hypothesis H0 The type of flux does not affect SIR against the alternative hypothesis H1 The type of flux does affect SIR While H0 seems fairly specific H1 is open ended H1 can be anything but H0 There may be many ways for SIR to be affected by flux differences eg change in mean median or scatter Different effects for different boards Such differences may show up in the data vector 2 through an appropriate test statistic SZ Here 2 X1 X9Y1 Yg Test Criteria or Test Statistics In the flux analysis we chose to use the absolute difference of sample means sZ Y X as our test criterion or test statistic for testing the null hypothesis A test statistic is a value calculated from data and other known entities eg assumed eg hypothesized parameter values We could have worked with the absolute difference in sample medians or with the ratio of sample standard deviations and compared that ratio with 1 etc Different test statistics are sensitive to different deviations from the null hypothesis A test statistic when viewed as a function of random input data is itself a random variable and has a distribution its sampling distribution Sampling Distributions For a test statistic sZ to be effective in deciding between H0 and H1 the sampling distributions of sZ under H0 and H1 should be separable to some degree a 8 o m a c E m 2 0 g o39 o O O I I I I I I I 90 95 100 105 110 115 120 Sampling Distribution under Hg m N o39 o N gt o o 5 m 2 g o t n o 2 F E o

of Y under H0 Y Sampling Distribution of Y under H1 When to Reject H0 The previous illustration shows a specific sampling distribution for sZ under H1 Typically H1 consists of many different possible distributional models leading to many possible sampling distributions under H1 Under H0 we often have just a single sampling distribution the null distribution If under H1 the test statistics sZ tends to have mostly higher values than under H0 we would want to reject H0 when sZ is large as on the previous slide How large is too large Need a critical value Cent and reject H0 when sZ 2 Cerit Choose Cent such that PsZ 2 CeritH0 or a pre chosen significance level Typically x 05 or 01 It is the probability of the type I error The previous illustration also shows that there may be values sZ in the overlap of both distributions Decisions are not clear out gt type or type II error 5 Decision Table Truth Decision H0 is true H0 is false accept H0 correct decision type II error reject H type I error

value allows us to accept or reject H0 at level or However the p value is more informative than saying that we reject at level or It is the smallest level or at which we would still have rejected H0 It is also called the observed significance level Working with predefined or made it possible to choose the best level or test Best Having highest probability of rejecting H0 when H1 is true This makes for nice and useful mathematical theory but p values should be the preferred way of judging and reporting test results for a specific test statistic It may well be that a different test statistic s1z gives a smaller p value than what the optimal test statistic s0z might give for a given 2 This complicates finding optimal tests based on p value behavior The Power Function The probability of rejecting H0 is denoted by 3 It is a function of the distributional model F governing 2 Le B 3F It is called the power function of the test When the hypothesis H0 is composite and when sZ has more than one possible distribution under H0 one defines the highest probability of type I error as the significance level of the test Hence x maximum3F F E H0 or limits the type I error probability For various F E H1 the power function gives us the corresponding probabilities of type II error as 1 Note that some people denote the probability of type II error by B 3F Thus make sure what is meant by 3F when you read or write about it Samples and Populations So far we have covered inference based on a randomization test This relied heavily on our randomized assignment of flux X and flux Y to the 18 circuit boards Such inference can logically only say something about flux differences in the context of those 18 boards To generalize any conclusions to other boards would require some assumptions judgement and ultimately a step of faith Would the same conclusion have been reached for another set of 18 boards What if one of the boards was an outlier board or something else was peculiar To be representative of the population of all boards we should view these 18 boards and their processing as a random sample from a conceptual population of such processed boards Conceptual Populations Clearly the 18 boards happened to be available at the time of the experiment They could have been a random sample of all boards available at the time However they also may have been taken sequentially in the order of production They certainly could not be a sample from future boards yet to be produced They could not be a sample of boards already in use on aircrafts The randomized processing steps might give the appearance of random samples assuming that these steps are mostly responsible for response variations Thus we could regard the 99 SIR values as two random samples from two very large or infinite conceptual populations of SIR values One sample of 9 boards from all boardsprocesses treated with flux X and one sample of 9 boards from all boardsprocesses treated with flux Y A board can only be treated with flux X or Y not both at the same time gt further conceptualization Population Distributions and Densities Such infinite populations of Z values are conveniently described by densities fz with the properties fz 2 0 and ffoofzdz 1 The probability of observing a randomly chosen element Z with Z g x is FxPZ xx fzdzx ftdt oo 00 z amp t are just dummy variables Avoid using x as dummy integration variable Fx as a function of x is also called the cumulative distribution function CDF of the random variable Z Fx from 0 to 1 as x goes from cgto to 00 For discrete populations with a finite or countany infinite number of distinct possible values z we replace fz by the probability mass function pz PZ z 2 0 and write Fx PZ g x Z pz with Zpz 1 ZSX Means Expectations and Variances The mean or expectation of Z or its population is defined by HMzEZ zfzdz or HEZZZPZ a probability weighted average of z values center of probability mass balance By extension the mean or expectation of gZ is defined by Eltgltzgtgt OO gZfZdZ or E 82 ZgZPZ Using gz z u2 the variance of Z is defined by 62 varltzgt E ltz m2 z H2fzdz or 62 2ltz ugt2pltzgt o oz varZ is

Population Model The normal population model is motivated by the Central Limit Theorem CLT This comes about because many physical or natural measured phenomena can be viewed as the addition of several independent source inputs or contributors YX1Xk or Ya l a1X1 l l aka for independent random variables X1 Xk and constants a0a1 ak Or in a 1 term Taylor expansion k M Hlv39unuk YfltX1Xkgt fltu1ukgtzltXi uigtT i1 l a0a1X1aka provided the linearization is sufficiently good ie the deviations X u are small compared to the curvature of f small oz 24 Central Limit Theorem CLT l Suppose we randomly and independently draw random variables X1 Xn from n possibly different populations with respective means 1 yn and standard deviations 61 6 Suppose further that the following variance ratio property holds 52 max 2 12 gt0 as n gtcgto i177n 616n ie none of the variances dominates among all variances obviously the case whenolonandn gtoo Then Y Yn X1 Xn has an approximate normal distribution with mean and variance given by uYu1ll un and 66 l 621 25 Central Limit Theorem CLT XI The last 4 slides illustrate the result when the condition none of the variances dominates is violated First we scaled up the log normal distribution by a factor of 10 and the resulting distribution of X1 X4 looks skewed to the right and looks in shape very much like the dominating log normal variation source In the second such example we instead scaled up the uniform distribution by a factor of 20 The resulting distribution of X1 X4 looks almost like a uniform distribution with somewhat smoothed shoulders In both cases the distribution with the dominating variability imprints its character on the resulting distribution of X1 X4 35 Derived Distributions from Normal Model Other than working with randomization reference distributions we otherwise generally assume normal distributions as the sources of our data Thus it is worthwhile to characterize some sampling distributions that are derived from the normal distribution They will play a significant role later on The chi square distribution the Student t distribution and the F distribution These distributions come about as sampling distributions of certain test statistics based on normal random samples Much of what is covered in this course could also be dealt with in the context of other sampling population models We will not get into that 38 Properties of Normal Random Variables Assume that X1 Xn are independent normal random variables with respective means and variances given by mun and 6621 Then Y X1 Xn N N011 uno o21

6X 7E oy and we use tXY anyway How is the probability of type I error affected Such questions can easily be examined using simulation in R When m n or 6X 6y it seems that using tXYis relatively safe

well to other distributional hypotheses For small sample sizes GOF tests tend to be very forgiving We reject only for gross deviations from H0 Very large samples from real applications most often lead to rejection of H0 The reason is that such tests are all consistent ie they will reject Hg for any alternative to H0 provided the sample is large enough Such alternatives may look very similar to H0 but not exactly the same Should we be concerned about such rejections Are tiny deviations from normality relevant The curse of large n GOF tests are most useful for moderate and not too large sample sizes 135 OCZ1BZ2NNO1 for 062B21 The normal convolution result on the previous slide follows by induction from the following special case which allows a simple and elegant proof 21 and 22 iid N M0 1

assume the data vector Y Y1 YN consists of independent Y N mm 62 random variables tori 1 N We also have a data model hypothesis namely that the mean vector y can be any point in a given s dimensional linear subspace HQ C RN where s lt N Many statistical problem can be formulated as follows we identify a linear subspace Hm of Hg of dimension s r with 0 lt r g s and we test the hypothesis H0 u E Hm against the alternative H1 Iu E HQ Hm To distinguish Hm from HQ we may want to call Hm the test hypothesis LSE s MLE s Maximum Likelihood Estimates Under the normal distribution model for the Y the LSE s are also the maximum likelihood estimates MLE s of 1 wrt to the respective model constraints y E HQ and y E Hm This follows immediately from the likelihood function for the observed Yyy177yNl 1 N i i2 L7Gfoy17ayN6 2 6X13 lt W which is maximized over HQ Hm by minimizing 105 ul2 wrt u E HQHD and by taking 62 lm ampl2N and 32 lm f12N respectively
