Problem 17SE

The rank-sum test is sometimes thought of as a test for population medians. Under the assumptions of equal spread and shape, the means of two populations will differ if and only if the medians differ; therefore tests for equality of population means are also tests for equality of population medians. This exercise illustrates that when these assumptions are seriously violated, the rank-sum test can give misleading results concerning the equality of population medians. Consider the following two samples:

a. Show that both samples have the same median.

b. Compute the P-value for a two-tailed rank-sum test. If small P-values provide evidence against the null hypothesis that the population medians are equal, would you conclude that the population medians are different?

c. Do the assumptions of the rank-sum test appear to be satisfied? Explain why or why not.

ANTHRO 2020 March 16, 2016 Early Woodlands (3000 – 1800 BP): Bridge-top mounds, small hamlets Sedentism- sedentary populations versus moving populations Small mounds located in the middle of a flood terrace Middle Woodland (1800 – 1300 BP) Hopewell Complex- name of a farmer who had a Hopewell mound on his farm (Morticai Hopewell)  There are enormous mounds, but in this tradition you re seeing very large mound centers, with walls and enclosed. There are a number of them in the Scioto Valley.  They seem to be places where people meet annually. Temporary leaders for each meeting  Find pits of blades without any wear one them  Animal bones, carvings that look like alligators, here in the Ohio Valley and Illinois Fort Ancient  Actually Late Woodland, but they were originally thought to be from the Middle Woodland  Mounds and pits throughout, pits were there to fill with water.  Argues that there would be a village in the middle of it. Newark Earthworks  Enormous site that stretches very far.  The great Newark road, is this roadway that heads off towards Chillicothe and continues all the way there.
