Chapter 19: Two-Sample Problems STAT 1450

Connecting Chapter 18 to our Current Knowledge of Statistics ▸ Remember that these formulas are only valid when appropriate simple conditions apply! 19.0 Two-Sample Problems Population Parameter Point Estimate Confidence Interval Test Statistic μ (σ known) μ (σ unknown)s

Connecting Chapter 19 to our Current Knowledge of Statistics ▸ Matched pairs were covered at the end of Chapter 18. A common situation requiring matched pairs is when before-and-after measurements are taken on individual subjects. ▸ Example: Prices for a random sample of tickets to a 2008 Katy Perry concert were compared with the ticket prices (for the same seats) to her 2013 concert..  The data could be consolidated into 1 column of differences in ticket prices.  A test of significance, or, a confidence interval would then occur for “1 sample of data.” 19.0 Two-Sample Problems

The Two-Sample Problems ▸ Two-sample problems require us to compare:  the response to two treatments - or -  the characteristics of two populations. ▸ We have a separate sample from each treatment or population. 19.1 The Two-Sample Problem

Two-Sample Problems ▸ The end of Chapter 18 described inference procedures for the mean difference in two measurements on one group of subjects (e.g., pulse rates for 12 students before-and-after listening to music). ▸ Given our answer from above, and the likelihood that each sample has different sample sizes, variances, etc… Chapter 19 focuses on the difference in means for 2 different groups.

Sampling Distribution of Two Sample Means 19.2 Comparing Two Population Means

Sampling Distribution of Two Sample Means ▸ The following table stems from the above comment on standard error and statistical theory. 19.2 Comparing Two Population Means VariableParameterPoint EstimatePopulation Standard Deviation Standard Error x1x1 11 11 x2x2 22 22 Diff = x 1 - x 2  1 -  2

Example: SSHA Scores ▸ The Survey of Study Habits and Attitudes (SSHA) is a psychological test designed to measure various academic behaviors (motivation, study habits, attitudes, etc…) of college students. Scores on the SSHA range from 0 to 200. The data for random samples 17 women (**the outlier from the original data set was removed**) and 20 men yielded the following summary statistics. ▸ Is there a difference in SSHA performance based upon gender? 19.2 Comparing Two Population Means

Example: SSHA Scores ▸ Summary statistics for the two groups are below:  There is a difference in these two groups. The women’s average was 17 points > than the men’s average.

Example: SSHA Scores ▸ Summary statistics for the two groups are below:  There is a difference in these two groups. The women’s average was 17 points > than the men’s average.  Yet, the standard deviations are larger than this sample difference, and the sample sizes are about the same.

Conditions for Inference Comparing Two- Sample Means and Robustness of t Procedures ▸ The general structure of our necessary conditions is an extension of the one-sample cases.  Simple Random Samples:  Do we have 2 simple random samples?  Population : Sample Ratio:  The samples must be independent and from two large populations of interest. 19.0 Two-Sample Problems

Conditions for Inference Comparing Two- Sample Means and Robustness of t Procedures  Large enough sample: Both populations will be assumed to be from a Normal distribution and  when the sum of the sample sizes is less than 15, t procedures can be used if the data close to Normal (roughly symmetric, single peak, no outliers)? If there is clear skewness or outliers then, do not use t.  when the sum of the sample sizes is between 15 and 40, t procedures can be used except in the presences of outliers or strong skewness.  when the sum of the sample sizes is at least 40, the t procedures can be used even for clearly skewed distributions. 19.0 Two-Sample Problems

Conditions for Inference Comparing Two- Sample Means and Robustness of t Procedures ▸ Note: In practice it is enough that the two distributions have similar shape with no strong outliers. The two-sample t procedures are even more robust against non-Normality than the one-sample procedures. 19.0 Two-Sample Problems

Example: SSHA Scores ▸ The summary statistics for the SSHA scores for random samples of men and women are below. There was neither significant skewness, nor, strong outliers, in either data set. Use this information to construct a 90% confidence interval for the mean difference. 19.3 Two-Sample t Procedures Group Sample Mean Sample Standard Deviation Sample Size Women139.58820.36317 Men122.532.13220

Both populations are arbitrarily large; much greater than, N W > 20*17 = 340; N M > 20*20 = 400  Large enough samples? Yes. n W + n M =37 < 40 outlier has been removed.

Example: SSHA Scores Conclude: a) Make a decision about the null hypothesis (Reject H 0 or Fail to reject H 0 ). 19.3 Two-Sample t Procedures

Example: SSHA Scores Conclude: a) Make a decision about the null hypothesis (Reject H 0 or Fail to reject H 0 ). Because the approximate P-value is smaller than 0.10, we reject the null hypothesis. b) Interpret the decision in the context of the original claim. 19.3 Two-Sample t Procedures

Example: SSHA Scores Conclude: a) Make a decision about the null hypothesis (Reject H 0 or Fail to reject H 0 ). Because the approximate P-value is smaller than 0.10, we reject the null hypothesis. b) Interpret the decision in the context of the original claim. There is enough evidence (at  =.10) that there is a difference in the mean SSHA score between men and women. 19.3 Two-Sample t Procedures

Closing Caveats and Comments ▸ The two-sample t statistic has an approximate (but accurate) t distribution. The approximate distribution of the two-sample t has an elaborate degrees of freedom computation (p.480). Computers use this formula in determining degrees of freedom. ▸ We will use Option 2 (p.470). This has df= smaller of (n 1 -1) and (n 2 -1). ▸ Because of the above fact, output in JMP (or other software packages) might have different df and p-values from manual analyses. 19.3 Two-Sample t Procedures

Closing Caveats and Comments ▸ We will not use “pooled” two-sample procedures. This assumes that the population variance is known and is equal for both variables. Use of our “Option 1” for two-sample t procedures yields more accurate results than the “pooled t.” The only caveat is when the sample sizes are equal; then our results and the “pooled t” would be equal. ▸ Do not use two-sample t procedures for inference regarding standard deviations. The F-test is more appropriate in those cases. 19.3 Two-Sample t Procedures

Closing Caveats and Comments ▸ Practitioners prefer having equal sample sizes for the two groups when possible. ▸ Exercises for this chapter will all assume that the SRS is from a Normal distribution. 19.3 Two-Sample t Procedures

Five-Minute Summary ▸ List at least 3 concepts that had the most impact on your knowledge of two-sample problems. _________________________________________
