Bnad277: Chapter 12 Notes Tests of Goodness of Fit, Independence, and Multiple Proportions: - In this chapter we introduce three additional hypothesis-testing procedures. 2 - The test statistic and the distribution used are based on the chi-square (c ) distribution. - In all cases, the data are categorical. - Goodness of Fit Test: Multinomial Probability Distribution: o 1. State the null and alternative hypotheses: o 2. Select a random sample and record the observed frequency, f , i for each of the k categories. o 3. Assuming H is t0ue, compute the expected frequency, e , in i each category by multiplying the category probability by the sample size. o 4. Compute the value of the test statistic. o 5. Rejection Rule: o Example: Finger Lakes Homes manufactures four models of prefabricated homes, a two-story colonial, a log cabin, a split-level, and an A-frame. To help in production planning, management would like to determine if previous customer purchases indicate that there is a preference in the style selected. ▯ The number of homes sold of each model for 100 sales over the past two years is shown below. ▯ Hypotheses: 2 ▯ Reject Rule: Reject H i0 p-value </ .05 or x > 7.815 ▯ Conclusion Using the Critical Value Approach: • X = 10 >/ 7.815 • We reject, at the .05 level of significance, the assumption that there is no home-style preference. - Test of Independence: o 1. Set up the null and alternative hypotheses. o 2. Select a random sample and record the observed frequency, f , ij for each cell of the contingency table. o 3. Compute the expected frequency, e , for eijh cell. o 4. Compute the test statistic: o 5. Determine the rejection rule: - Testing the Equality of Population Proportions for Three or More Populations: o Using the notation ▯ p1= population proportion for population 1 ▯ p 2 population proportion for population 2 ▯ and p k population proportion for population k o The hypotheses for the equality of population proportions for k > 3 populations are as follows: o If H c0nnot be rejected, we cannot detect a difference among the k population proportions. o If H c0n be rejected, we can conclude that not all k population proportions are equal. o Further analyses can be done to conclude which population proportions are significantly different from others. ▯ Example: Finger Lakes Homes manufactures three models of prefabricated homes, a two-story colonial, a log cabin, and an A-frame. To help in product-line planning, management would like to compare the customer satisfaction with the three home styles. ▯ p1= proportion likely to repurchase a Colonial for the population of Colonial owners ▯ p2= proportion likely to repurchase a Log Cabin for the population of Log Cabin owners ▯ p3= proportion likely to repurchase an A-Frame for the population of A-Frame owners ▯ Observed Frequencies: ▯ Next, determine the expected frequencies under the assumption H is0correct. ▯ Expected Frequencies: ▯ Next, compute the value of the chi-square test statistic: ▯ Computation of the Chi-Square Test Statistic: 2 ▯ Rejection Rule: Because c = 8.670 is between 9.210 and 7.378, the area in the upper tail of the distribution is between .01 and .025. ▯ The p-value < a. We can reject the null hypothesis. ▯ We have concluded that the population proportions for the three populations of home owners are not equal. ▯ To identify where the differences between population proportions exist, we will rely on a multiple comparisons procedure. - Multiple Comparisons Procedure: o We begin by computing the three sample proportions: o We will use a multiple comparison procedure known as the Marascuillo procedure. o Marascuillo Procedure: We compute the absolute value of the pair wise difference between sample proportions: o For each pair-wise comparison compute a critical value as follows: o Pair-wise Comparison Tests:
