Multinomial Experiments Goodness of Fit Tests We have just seen an example of comparing two proportions. For that analysis, we used the normal distribution as a sampling distribution. We will now look an problems where we compare more than two proportions. We will not be able to use the normal distribution, but will use a different distribution called the Chi-Square or Χ 2 Distribution. Consider the problem of testing a die to see if it is unfair. The die has six numbers, all equally likely. If die is fair, then each number should have a probability of 1/6. In the long run, each number will come up 1/6 of the number of rolls. Suppose weI take a sample of 60 rolls. Theoretically, each number should come up 1/6*60 = 10 times. If the numbers are not all 10, either the die is not fair, or, the die is fair, and the numbers different from 10 are explained by sampling variation. To sort this out, I need a hypotheses test, a sampling distribution, and a p-value. 1Section 11.2, Page 241

Goodness of Fit Test Fair Die Example Following is the distribution of the observed frequencies of results from rolling a die 60 times. Is the die fair? The hypotheses are as follows: Clearly, the observed frequencies are not all equal to the theoretical frequencies of 10. We need a way to measure how big the “miss” is to see if it likely to be due to sampling variation, or if it is so large as to not be explained by sampling variation. 2Section 11.2, Page 243

Chi Square Statistic Fair Die Example We calculate the “miss” called the chi-square statistic similarly to the way we calculate the variance. Note that the expected frequencies always equal the total number of observations × H o true proportion for each cell or proportion. Also note that the total expected frequencies always equals the total observed frequencies. The χ2 Statistic is the Total, 2.2. Also, note that minimum value of the χ2 is zero. If we took another sample, we would likely get a different value for the chi-square statistic. 3Section 11.1, Page 241

Chi-Square Distribution Fair Die Example Now we need a sampling distribution for the Χ 2 statistic = 2.2, so we can calculate the probability of getting a Χ 2 ≥ 2.2 when the true proportions are all equal to 1/6. Χ 2 Distribution for 5 df This is a distribution of all possible Χ 2 statistics calculated from all possible samples of 60 observations when there are 6 proportions or cells. Note that the degree of freedom equals the number of proportions – 1. Finding the p-value on the TI-83, Given Χ 2 Stat, df PRGM – CHI2DIST LOWER BOUND: 2.2 UPPER BOUND: 2 ND E99 df: 5 Output: P-VALUE = 0.8208 The null hypothesis cannot be rejected. 4Section 11.2, Page 242

Chi-Square Distribution Conditions The sample is random and the observed data represents counts of of individuals in individual categories of a categorical variable Each expected count is 5 or greater 5Section 11.1, Page 240

Goodness of Fit Test Fair Die Example – TI-83 Add-In Following is the distribution of the observed frequencies of results from rolling a die 60 times. Is the die fair? The hypotheses are as follows: 6Section 11.2, Page 243 Each expected cell = 1/6*60 = 10. STAT-EDIT – LI: Enter the observed frequency numbers L2: Enter the expected values, 10 in each of 6 cells. PRGM – GOODFIT OBSERVED LIST = 2 ND L1 EXPECTED LIST = 2 ND L2 Answer: p-value =.8208, Chi-Square Stat = 2.2 Since p-value >,05, H o cannot be rejected.

Goodness of Fit Test Mendelian Theory Problem Mendel’s genetic theory of inheritance claims that the frequencies of round and yellow, wrinkled and yellow, round and green, and wrinkled and green peas will occur in the ratio of 9:3:3:1. In testing the theory, Mendel obtained frequencies of 315, 101, 108, and 32 respectively. Does the data contradict the theory. Do a hypotheses test. Ho: The data fits the theory Ha: The data does not fit the theory.

Test for Independence Following is a two way table. In this case, two categorical variables are measured on one group of college students. For each student, their Gender and Favorite Subject Area are recorded. Independence of Two Variables Consider the Social Science category. 113/300 or 38% of all students chose Social Science. However, 41/122 or 34% of males chose the category and 72/178 or 40% of Females chose the category. Considering this a probability distribution, if I pick a person at random, there is a 38% chance the person chose Social Science. However, it you tell me the person is a female, then the probability is 40% they chose the category. This is an indication that the two variables are not independent, but related. Two variables are independent, if knowing the outcome of one variable does not change the probability of the outcome of the other variable. 11Section 11.3, Page 246

Tests for Independence The sample data gives an indication the variables are not independent, but this indication may be due to sampling variation. To test for independence, we will use Chi-Square methods. The appropriate hypotheses are: H o : The variables are independent H a : The variables are not independent Next, we need to calculate the expected values for each cell of the data matrix under the assumption that the variables are independent. For example, if the variables are independent, then the the overall proportion of of students in the Social science category is 113/300 =.3767. Both the proportions for the category have to be the same. The expected value for Males is 0.3767*122= 45.95 and the expected values for Females is 0.3767*178 = 67.05. 12Section 11.3, Page 248

Test for Independence Shown above in the parentheses are all the expected values. Next we need to calculate the χ2 statistic for each data cell. For example, for the first cell: (37-29.28) 2 /29.28 = 2.0355. Adding up the cell calculations for the 6 cells gives total χ2 statistic of 4.604. The formula for df =(#rows – 1)*(#columns – 1) = (2-1)*(3-1) = 2. The area under the curve to the right of 4.604 =.1001 >.05. The null hypotheses cannot be rejected. 13Section 11.3, Page 248

Tests for Homogeneity Another application of Chi-Square procedures is test for homogeneity, or essentially, a test whether different groups have the same distribution for a given variable. Consider the table below that gives voter’s opinion on a proposal broken down by separate locations. In the case of a test for independence, we had one group of individuals and measure two categorical variables in that group. In the case of a test for homogeneity, we have one categorical variable, Opinion on Proposal, and three separately located groups of voters. The hypothesis are: Ho: The distributions are homogeneous Ha: The distributions are not homogeneous 17Section 11.3, Page 250

Tests for Homogeneity The mechanics for a test of homogeneity are exactly the same as for a test of independence. We calculate the expected values under the assumption Ho is true. The proportion favor are all assumed to be 254/500 =.5080. The expected value for urban is.5080*200 = 101.6. The χ2 Stat for cell 1 = (143-101.6)2/101.6 = 16.8897. The total χ2 statistic for all cells is 91.72. The df = 2 and the p-value = 1.21E-20 ≅ 0 Ho is rejected, the distributions are not the same. 18Section 11.3, Page 251
