Section 81 What Are the Steps for Performing 1 Signi cance Test January 87 2009 1 8 Statistical Inference Signi cance Tests About Hypotheses 81 What Are the Steps for Performing a Signi cance Test Example Legal setting Test the claim that Ralph committed armed robbery H 0 null hypothesis status quo conventional wisdom old idea accepted idea Ha alternative hypothesis the challenge to the con ventional wisdom new idea proposed idea If we wish to reject H 0 ie reject the idea that Ralph is innocent of armed robbery in favor of Ha ie in favor of the idea that Ralph is guilty of armed robbery we need overwhelming evidence to support our claim such as witnesses videotapes confession or DNA evidence Section 81 What Are the Steps for Performing 1 Signi cance Test January 87 2009 Otherwise we fail to prove him guilty ie not guilty Innocent until proved guilty We reject the null hypothesis in favor of the alter native hypothesis or we fail to reject the null hypothesis Do NOT say accept H0 which is equivalent to saying proved innocent as a substitution for fail to reject H0 What is the goal in hypothesis testing Regarding the goal of hypothesis testing the researcher is analogous to whom in the legal setting D Example State the hypotheses for testing the claim that peanut oil causes colon cancer D Example State the hypotheses for testing the claim that peanut oil prevents colon cancer Section 81 What Are the Steps for Performing 1 Signi cance Test January 87 2009 D Statistical setting Example Suppose a particular politician s ap proval rating last month was 55 You believe that this approval rating has decreased due to a scan dal State the appropriate hypotheses Let p be the unknown current population approval rating of this politician D Example Suppose the mean personal income of your community last year was 41000 You be lieve that mean personal income has increased due to improved infrastructure State the appropriate hypotheses Let u be the unknown population mean personal income this year D Example In a college s handbook the mean SAT Scction 82 Signi cance Tests About Proportions January 87 2009 4 score is listed as 1100 You believe that the informa tion is outdated State the appropriate hypotheses Let u be the unknown population mean SAT score 82 Signi cance Tests About Proportions Let p unknown population proportion Let p sarnple

test statistic at least as extreme as the Observed value based on the assumption that H 0 is true The smaller the P Value the stronger the evi dence against H 0 When the P Value is small we say that the data Section 82 Signi cance Tests About Proportions January 87 2009 are statistically signi cant In this example the P Value is 01446 h State the conclusion in statistical terms and in regular English Is the Pvalue small enough that we should reject H 0 Rule Reject H0 in favor of Ha if P Value g or other wise fail to reject H0 Wheri P Value 01446 would H 0 be rejected if or 005 oz 01 oz 02 oz 015 and 04 01446 A mathematically rigorous de nition The Pvalue is the smallest value of oz for which the hull hypoth esis would be rejected The PValue is also called the observed signi cance level Section 82 Signi cance Tests About Proportions January 87 2009 8 Do researchers typically prefer small or large P values The P Value is NOT PH0 is true For example if the DNA match is 001 for the defen dant does this imply that there is a 1 chance that the defendant is innocent P Value is PSuch strong evidence would exist against the defendant given that the defendant is innocent P Value is NOT PDefendant is innocent Example You Visit a foreign country on vacation and get thrown into jail for no apparent reason The blood at some crime scene is type A and you who unluckily have type A blood become the defendant Suppose that 42 of all people have type A blood Is there a 42 chance that you are innocent Is there an 58 chance that you are guilty D Section 82 Signi cance Tests About

2280 months Mathematically rigorous interpre tation If we repeat the sampling procedure many times to construct many 99 con dence intervals on u the population mean lifetime of this new strain of mice then approximately 99 of these 99 con dence intervals will contain the true value of u Section 83 Signi cance Tests About Means January 87 2009 16 h Is our 99 con dence interval consistent with the conclusion of our 2 sided hypothesis test of level 05 001 i Suppose we had tested H0 against Ha u y 20 months at level 001 u 20 months D Remark A strong connection exists between 2 sided hypothesis tests of level 05 and 1 04 level con dence intervals Remark The t procedures are robust Hence even under some violations of the assumptions ie n is large or the original population is approximately normal the t test and the t con dence interval of ten produce accurate results anyway Example Suppose 20 observations are sampled from the following Uniform population D Section 84 Decisions and Types of Errors in Signi cance Tcsts January 87 2009 84 Decisions and Types of Errors in Signi cance Tests Recall The PValue is the probability of obtaining a value of the standardized test statistic at least as extreme as the observed value based on the assump tion that H 0 is true Recall We reject H0 if and only if P Value g 04 What is the likelihood that we erroneously reject H 0 when in fact H0

concluded that the population mean nicotine content of Volcano cigarettes is less than 25 mg Are the data statistically signi cant Section 4 Should We Erpem39ment or Should We Merely Observe January 87 2009 1 4 Gathering Data 41 Should We Experiment or Should We Merely Observe Example Does cell phone use cause brain cancer a Conduct an observational study ie7 take a survey among humans 0 What are the drawbacks to this observational study b Conduct an experiment with humans 0 What are the drawbacks to this experiment c Conduct an experiment with mice 0 What are the drawbacks to this experiment Section 4 Should We Erpen39rnent or Should We Merely Observe January 87 2009 Example University of Michigan7 May 197 20037 news report by three social scientists Student drug testing not effective in reducing drug use77 wwwumichedunewsReleases2003May03r051903html Study was from 1998720017 based on 722 secondary schools 497 high schools and 225 middle schools Students were asked if they used marijuana in the past 12 months7 and a school administrator was asked about the drug testing policy Overall7 schools testing for drugs were virtually similar to schools not testing for drugs in terms of marijuana use among students The authors implied that drug testing is a waste of money a What are the explanatory and response variables b Was this study observational or an erperz39rnent c ls the authors7 implication valid D De nition Anecdotal evidence consists of self selected data What are some examples Section 42 What are Good Ways and P007quot Ways to Sample January 87 2009 3 A Survey and 21 Census Example Suppose we are interested in the population proportion of American adults who support the Presidents foreign policy in Afghanistan ldeally7 take a What would be the disadvantages What would be the advantages lnstead7 take a De nition A sample survey selects a sample of people from a population and interviews them to collect data77 What would be the advantages What would be the disadvantages 42 What are Good Ways and Poor Ways to Sample De nition A simple random sample of n subjects from a population is one in which each possible sample ofthat size has the same chance of being selected7 Section 42 What are Good Ways and P007quot Ways to Sample January 87 2009 4 Example Suppose we want to sample 80 students out of 7000 Should we select the rst 80 names on the list D Data collection may consist of personal interview7 telephone interview perhaps via random digit dialing7 or selfadministered questionnaire The margin of error measures the precision of an estimator For the estimator 13 ie7 the sample proportion7 the margin of error is roughly 1 7 gtlt 100 W Example Suppose that in a simple random sample of 250 adults7 the Republican is leading the Democrat by a vote of 135 to 115 ls it reasonable to conclude that the Republican really is winning D Example Suppose that in a simple random sample of 1000 adults7 the Republican is leading the Democrat by a vote of 540 to 460 ls it reasonable to conclude that the Republican really is winning Section 42 What are Good Ways and P007quot Ways to Sample January 87 2009 5 D De nition The sampling frame is the list of subjects in the population from which the sample is taken7 Example Sample only American senior citizens when estimating how American adults feel on Social Security issues What are the population and sampling frame Would the results of this poll be valid D Types of Bias in Sample Surveys 1 Sampling bias occurs from using nonrandom samples or having undercover age7 2 Nonresponse bias occurs when some sampled subjects cannot be reached or refuse to participate or fail to answer some questions77 3 Response bias occurs when the subject gives an incorrect response perhaps lying7 or the question wording or the way the interviewer asks the questions is confusing or misleading7 Example In 2000 for a JMU student research project7 the researchers asked ques tions similar to the following Seetiori 42 What are Good Ways arid Poor Ways to Sample January 87 2009 6 Do you smoke marijuana7 Do you think JMU students smoke marijuana7 D Example The Literary Digest Poll Know this example iri detail although you rieed riot memorize the numbers Franklin Roosevelt vs Alfred Landon7 Election of 1936 Since 19167 the Literary Digest correctly picked the Presidents Digest mailed questionnaires to 10 million people7 whose names were from country club membership lists7 phone books7 and automobile registrations George Gallup7 polling 507000 people7 predicted Digest s results in advance 3rd party earididates were ereluded iri the numbers below Roosevelt7s percentage The election result 62 Digest s prediction 43 Gallup7s prediction of Digest 44 Gallup7s prediction of election 56 Section 43 What are Good Ways and Poor Ways to Eaperz39meht January 87 2009 Example Thomas Dewey vs Harry Truman7 Election of 1948 Know this example in detail although you heed hot memorize the numbers candidates Crossley Gallup Roper results Harry Truman 45 44 38 50 Thomas Dewey 50 50 53 45 Strom Thurmond 2 2 5 3 George Wallace 3 4 4 2 A Gallup Poll interviewer in St Louis was required to interview 13 subjects of whom o 6 live in suburbs7 7 in central city 0 7 men7 6 women 0 AND additional criteria based on age7 race7 monthly rent D Do we trust the results of volunteer samples7 such as internet polls Why or why not 43 What are Good Ways and Poor Ways to Experiment De nition In an experiment7 the subjects may be called experimental units The three principles of experimental design are 1 control 2 randomization 7 Section 43 What are Good Ways and Poor Ways to Esperz39meht January 87 2009 3 replication Example Know this example in detail Diethylstibestrol DES is an arti cial hormone7 and was believed to prevent miscarriages The rate of miscarriages among pregnant women was known to be some xed number for non DES users In ve large studies7 pregnant women volunteered to try DES7 and the rate of miscar riages for these DES users was lower than for the non DES users In each of these ve studies7 the researchers concluded that DES lowers the rate of miscarriages Were the conclusions of these researchers valid Even in the late 1960s7 doctors were prescribing the drug to 507000 women each year DES was banned for use on pregnant women in 1971 D ldeally7 a doubleblinded experiment is best When is a double blinded experiment not possible or not ethical Example Salk Vaccine Field Trial Know this example in detail although you need not memom39ze the numbers In 1916 polio epidemic in United States Section 43 What are Good Ways and Poor Ways to Eavpcrz39mcnt January 87 2009 9 ln 1950s Jonas Salk had a promising vaccine7 which worked well in laboratory ie7 the vaccine seemed safe and produced antibodies against polio What now Test whether or not vaccine works a hypothetical Test vaccine on a small sample of children eg 10 children If successful on them7 mass distribute the vaccine b hypothetical Offer vaccine to a large number of children Typically7 not everyone will accept the vaccine We have two groups treatment those who accepted the vaccine and control those who declined the vaccine What is the explanatory variable What is the response variable Would this study be considered a valid experiment Section 43 What are Good Ways and P007quot Ways to Eavpcrz39mcnt January 87 2009 c real data The National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis NFIP proposed vaccinating all grade 2 children if consent was given7 and leaving grades 1 and 3 for control Would this study be considered a valid experiment d real data Randomized control Offer many children the ability to participate in the experiment7 but do not tell them if they are given treatment or placebo Also7 do not tell doctors or nurses Section 44 What are Other Ways to Conduct Experimental and Observational Studies January 87 2009 11 Statistics tell us that with large enough samples7 randomized controlled experiments determine whether or not a treatment eg7 drug7 vaccine works If the treatment group has a higher success rate than the placebo group7 we need to decide if this was due to chance or due to a successful treatment Typically7 we require overwhelming evidence that the treatment was successful before marketing the new vaccine Salk vaccine trial of 1954 Rate of polio per 1007000 Randomized controlled double blinded experiment The NFlP study size rate size rate treatment high hyg 2007000 28 Grade 2 vaccine7 high hyg 2257000 25 control high hyg 2007000 71 Grades 1 X5 3 control7 average

a control7 whereas an observational study consists of just polling Section 44 What are Other Ways to Conduct Experimental and Observational Studies January 87 2009 12 Multifactor Experiments Often we are interested in more than one explanatory variable ie7 factor Suppose we are testing two different treatments for cancer What might be another factor of interest Experiments Randomized or Matched An experiment may use a completely randomized design 7 All experimental units are randomly as signed to treatment or control b matched pairs 7 Each individual or pairs of similar individuals is given both the treatment and the control Give an example of a medical experiment using matched pairs When is a medical experiment using matched pairs not possible Which is better7 and why completely randomized design or matched pairs Types of Observational Studies Sample Surveys Section 44 What are Other Ways to Conduct Experimental and Observational Studies January 87 2009 13 De nition A Simple random sample of n subjects from a population is one in which each possible sample ofthat size has the same chance of being selected from section 42 De nition A strati ed random sample divides the population into groups called strata7 and then selects a simple random sample from each stratum Example Suppose that a university is known to be 60 female and 40 male7 and a survey is to be conducted related to the abortion issue Enough funding or time is available to sample 100 students a How would a simple random sample be taken b How would a strati ed random sample be taken c Which sample is better and why De nition Divide the population into a large number of clusters Select a simple random sample of the clusters All elements within each cluster are sampled7 to form a cluster random sample Example You have one week to estimate the average annual church donation of Baptists members in Rhode Island a How would a simple random sample be taken
