Example: In a heart study the systolic blood pressure was measured for 24 men aged 25 and for 30 men aged 40. Do these data show sufficient evidence to conclude that the older men have a higher systolic blood pressure, at the 0.05 level of significance? Since The variable concerning systolic blood pressure is continuous The sample size of each group is greater than 10 Systolic blood pressure values in each group is normally distributed There are two groups and they are independent Independent samples t-test is used

Example: A study was conducted to see if a new therapeutic procedure is more effective than the standard treatment in improving the digital dexterity of certain handicapped persons. Twenty-four pairs of twins were used in the study, one of the twins was randomly assigned to receive the new treatment, while the other received the standard therapy. At the end of the experimental period each individual was given a digital dexterity test with scores as follows.

Since The variable concerning digital dexterity test scores is continuous The sample size is greater than 10 digital dexterity test score is normally distributed There are two groups and they are dependent Paired sample t-test

Since, reject H 0.

Example: We want to know if children in two geographic areas differ with respect to the proportion who are anemic. A sample of one-year-old children seen in a certain group of county health departments during a year was selected from each of the geographic areas composing the departments’ clientele. The followig information regarding anemia was revealed. Geographic Area Number in sample Number anemic Proportion 14501050.23 23751200.32

Reject H 0. We concluded that the proportion of anemia is different in two geographic areas.

Example: To test the median level of energy intake of 2 year old children as 1280 kcal reported in another study, energy intakes of 10 children are calculated. Energy intakes of 10 children are as follows: Child12345678910 Energy Intake 15008251300170097012001110127014601090

Since The variable concerning energy intake is continuous The sample size is not greater than 10 Energy intake is not normally distributed There is only one group Sign test

H 0 : The population median is 1280. H A : The population median is not 1280. Child12345678910 Energy İntake 15008251300170097012001110127014601090 ++--+----+ Number of (-) signs = 6 and number of (+) signs = 4 For k=4 and n=10 From the sign test table p=0.377

Since p > 0.05 we accept H 0 We conclude that the median energy intake level in 2 year old children is 1280 kcal.

Example: Cryosurgery is a commonly used therapy for treatment of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN). The procedure is associated with pain and uterine cramping. Within 10 min of completing the cryosurgical procedure, the intensity of pain and cramping were assessed on a 100-mm visual analog scale (VAS), in which 0 represent no pain or cramping and 100 represent the most severe pain and cramping. The purpose of study was to compare the perceptions of both pain and cramping in women undergoing the procedure with and without paracervical block.

5 women were selected randomly in each groups and their scores are as follows: GroupScore Women without a block 14 88 37 27 0 Women with a paracervical block 50 70 37 66 75

Since The variable concerning pain/cramping score is continuous The sample size is less than 10 There are two groups and they are independent Mann Whitney U test

Example: A study was conducted to analyze the relation between coronary heart disease (CHD) and cigarette smoking. 40 patients with CHD and 50 control subjects were randomly selected from the records and smoking habits of these subjects were examined. Observed values are as follows: + - Yes No Total 90 Smoking Total CHD 30 4 46 1476 40 50 10

Observed and expected frequencies + - Yes No Total 90 Smoking Total CHD 30 4 46 1476 40 50 10 6.2 33.8 7.842.2

df = (r-1)(c-1)=(2-1)(2-1)=1  2 (1,0.05) =3.845 Conclusion: There is a relation between CHD and cigarette smoking.  2 =4. 95 > reject H 0

Example:To test whether the weight-reducing diet is effective 9 persons were selected. These persons stayed on a diet for two months and their weights were measured before and after diet. The following are the weights in kg: Subject Weights BeforeAfter 18582 29192 36862 47673 58281 68783 710585 89388 99890 Since The variable concerning weight is continous.
