Statistics
Basic Concepts
Is the universal set in the analysis; is the set that includes all interesting elements for the case.
It is a representative quantity of one of the parts (subset) of a population (universe) that is analyzed to know the characteristics of this population.
The sample must be random to ensure that it is the closest representation of the population.
is always integer (never fractions or decimals).
Examples: number of people, number of classrooms, number of classes, etc.
any value inside a defined interval. Could be fractional or with decimal point.
Example: times, grades, prices, weight, etc.
They are discrete (integer) or continuous (integer, fractional or with decimals).
They are measured using nominal scales where there is no order for the categories. For example, hair color, eye colors, etc.
Mean
13, 18, 13, 14, 13, 16, 14, 21, 13
The mean is basically the average:
(13 + 18 + 13 + 14 + 13 + 16 + 14 + 21 + 13) / 9 = 15
Mode
13, 18, 13, 14, 13, 16, 14, 21, 13
The mode is the number that is repeated more often than any other, so 13 is the mode.
13, 18, 13, 14, 13, 16, 14, 21, 13
13 is repeated 4 times, more than any other value.
Median
13, 18, 13, 14, 13, 16, 14, 21, 13
The median is the middle value, so I'll have to rewrite the list in order.
13, 13, 13, 13, 14, 14, 16, 18, 21
1, 2, 4, 7
In this case, there’s no middle value implicit, so we have to take the average of the two middle values.
1, 2, 4, 7
(2+4) ÷ 2 = 3
Get the mean, mode, and median
2, 9, 6, 2, 4, 6, 8, 9, 3, 6, 8, 9, 6, 7, 7, 1, 5, 6
Ponderated Mean
When the values from which the mean is obtained have different weights or ponderations.
Example:
For the final grade of a class, the following ponderation is considered:
1st Partial 10%
2nd Partial 20%
3rd Partial 30%
Final Exam 40%
If George has the grades 75, 95, 100, and 80 respectively, find the ponderated mean of his semester.
Example:
A student has to present a selection exam, which consists of two parts: Math, with a value of 70% in the exam; and Physics, with a value of 30% in the exam.
If the student got 60 on the Math exam, and 70 in Physics, what is the student’s grade in the exam?
What would be the student’s grade if Math and Phyiscs had the same value in the exam (50% each)?
The mean annual wage for a company’s employees is $5,000. For men, it was $5,200, and for women it was $4,200. Find the percentage of men and women that work at this company.
Work in teams of 3, show me your answer before the time's done!
Variance
It can be considered as the square distance between the values observed (variable), and the expected value of those values altogether (mean).
μ = mean of the population,
N = number of scores
= variance.
In a population
= mean of the sample
n = the total number of values of the sample.
In a sample
The (n – 1) in the denominator gives an unbiased estimate of the population variance,
Standard Deviation
Is a measure of the dispersion of a collection of values; it’s measured against the mean.
The standard deviation is simply the square root of the variance.
It is the most commonly used measure of spread.
Take the dogs heights:
600 , 470, 170, 430, 300
Find the mean of the heights.
Calculate the difference between each height and the mean.
Take each difference and square it.
Find the sum of the squared values.
Divide the sum by (n1)
The result is the variance of the sample.
Now, we can know which values are acceptable or normal by finding the standard deviation (square root of the variance).

Get which movies are within an acceptable if all the movies in theaters have an average $200M in box office.
Normal Distribution
Determination of Sample Size
ANOVA
Since the bellshaped curve is symmetric, the probability of deviations from the mean are comparable in either direction.
When you want to describe the probability for a continuous variable, you do so by describing the area under a "bellshaped" curve.
Standard Normal Distribution
is defined as the normal distribution with a
mean = zero (μ = 0)
standard deviation = one (σ= 1).
The normal random variable of a standard normal distribution is called a “Z” score or “Z” distance.
In a “One  Sigma Rule”, (Z = 1, 1) or σ from the mean, the probability (area under the standard normal curve) is 68%.
In a “Two  Sigma Rule”, (Z = 2, 2) or 2σ from the mean, the probability (area under the standard normal curve) is 95%.
In a “Three  Sigma Rule”, (Z = 3, 3) or 3σ from the mean, the probability (area under the standard normal curve) is 99.7%.

How large should a sample be in a specific situation?
If a larger sample than necessary is used, resources are wasted; if the sample is too small, the objectives of the analysis may not be achieved.
What degree of precision is desired?
the greater the degree of desired precision, the larger will be the necessary sample size.
Suppose we would like to conduct a poll among eligible voters in a city in order to determine the percentage who intend to vote for the Democratic candidate in an upcoming election.
We specify that we want the probability to be
95.5%
that we will estimate the percentage that will vote Democratic within
+/ 1
percentage point.
What is the required sample size?
n = required sample size
Pc = confidence level
e = confidence interval or desired level of precision expressed in percentage or decimals.
p = estimation of proportion
If we observe from the chart, the estimate of proportion (p) yields a maximum variability at (p = 0.5). This provides a more conservative approach when obtaining our required sample size (n).
Thus, if not stated directly, the estimation of proportion (p) can be assumed to be 0.5 for maximum variability.
A random sample is to be selected to estimate the proportion of citizens of a large Texan city who favor federal price controls on natural gas that is transported interstate. The range of the estimate is to be kept within 4% with a confidence level of 96%. How large a simple random sample is required?
A consumer research group is surveying the consumer population of the New England region to estimate the proportion of consumers who use biodegradable laundry detergent.
How large a random sample should be drawn if the objective is to estimate the proportion of consumers using biodegradable detergent within four percentage points with 98% confidence? Assume that the proportion of consumers using this type of detergent is estimated from past experiences to be 0.20.
Suppose we wanted to estimate the arithmetic
mean
hourly wage rate for a group of skilled workers in a certain industry.
Let us further assume that from prior studies we estimate that the population standard deviation of the hourly wage rates of these workers is about $0.15. How large a sample size would be required to yield a probability of 99.7% that we will
estimate the mean
wage rate of these workers within +/ $ 0.03?

A publishing wants to know what percent of the population might be interested in a new magazine on making the most of your retirement. Secondary data (that is several years old) indicates that 22% of the population is retired. They are willing to accept an error rate of 5% and they want to be 95% certain that their finding does not differ from the true rate by more than 5%. What is the required sample size?
A fast food company wants to determine the average number of times that fast food users visit fast food restaurants per week. They have decided that their estimate needs to be accurate within plus or minus onetenth of a visit, and they want to be 95% sure that their estimate does not differ from true number of visits by more than onetenth of a visit. Previous research has shown that the standard deviation is .7 visits. What is the required sample size?
Confidence Interval Estimate for a Mean
A random sample of 16 public school teachers in a particular state has a mean salary of $33,000 with a standard deviation of $1,000. Construct a 99 percent confidence interval estimate for the true mean salary for public school teachers for the given state.
For example, you want to know the average amount of time a student at Ohio State University spends listening to music per day, using an MP3 player. The average time for the entire population of OSU students that are MP3player users is the parameter you’re looking for. Certain that you can’t ask every student who uses an MP3 player at OSU this question, you take a random sample of students and find the average from there.
Suppose the average time a student uses an MP3 player per day to listen to music based on a random sample of
1,000 OSU students
is
2.5 hours
, and the standard deviation is
0.5 hours
.
Is it right to say that the population of all OSUstudent MP3player owners use their players an average of 2.5 hours per day for music listening? No.
You hope and may assume that the average for the whole population is close to 2.5, but it probably isn’t exact. After all, you’re only sampling a tiny fraction of the 60,000 member population of all OSU students. The fact is that sample results vary from sample to sample.
The solution is to not only report the average from your sample, but along with it, report some measure of how much you expect that sample average to vary from one sample to the next, with a certain level of confidence.
You want to cover your bases, so to speak (at least most of the time). The number that you use to represent this level of precision in your results is called the
margin of error.
You take your sample average and add and subtract the margin of error (to get that plusorminus factor going), which gives you a confidence interval for the average time all OSU students use their MP3 players.

The president of a small community college wishes to estimate the average distance commuting students travel to the campus. A sample of 12 students was randomly selected and yielded the following distances in miles: 27, 35, 33, 30, 39, 25, 38, 22, 27, 37, 33, 40. Construct a 95% confidence interval estimate for the true mean distance commuting students travel to the campus.

When the variance is not known but has to be estimated from sample data, you should use the tdistribution rather than standard normal distribution.
When the sample size (n) is large, say 100 or above, the tdistribution is very similar to the standard normal distribution.
However, with smaller sample sizes (i.e. n = 5), the tdistribution has relatively more “scores” in its tails than does the standard normal distribution.
As a result, you have to extend farther from the mean to contain a given proportion of the area.
Establishing Test Hypotheses (Null Hypothesis and Alternative Hypothesis)
In statistics, the only way of supporting your hypothesis, (H1), is to reject the null hypothesis, (H0
).
Rather than trying to show that (H
¹
), or the alternative hypothesis, is correct, we must show that the null hypothesis, (H
o
), is likely to be wrong – we have to “reject” or “nullify” the null hypothesis , (H
o

An advertising agency would like to create an advertisement for a fast food restaurant claiming that the average waiting time from ordering to receiving your order at the restaurant is less than 5 min. The agency measured the time from ordering to delivery of order for 25 customers and found that the average time was 4.7 min with a standard deviation of 0.6 min. At the 5 percent level of significance, test the claim.
A sales manager claims that his salesmen can sell an average of more than 9.3 computers per week. The CEO of the company would like to prove this, so he measured 15 salesmen’s sales records, getting an average of 7.6 sales, with a std. deviation of 0.9. Use a 95% certainty to prove the manager’s claim.
A movie theater manager claims that he can get more than 500 customers in one night.

Each year, car manufacturers perform mileage tests on new car models and submit the results to the EPA. The EPA then tests the cars to determine whether the manufacturer´s claims are correct. In 1998, Mercedes Benz reported that the SLK averaged 29 mpg on the highway. Suppose the EPA tested 15 of these cars and obtained an average of 28.75 mpg with a standard deviation of 1.6 mpg. At 5% significance, test to see if Mercedes Benz´s claim is correct.
In 2001, a study done in Mexico found that the average height of males 50+ years of age was 1.63 meters. A random sample of 12 Mexican citizens (50+ years of age) was found to have an average height of 1.68 meters with a standard deviation of 0.2 meters. With 95% certainty, test to see if the study done in 2001 is true.
A OneWay ANOVA or (Analysis of Variance) is a way to test the equality of three or more means at one time by using variances.
Assumptions when using ANOVA:
The populations from which the samples were obtained must be approximately normally distributed.
The samples must be independent.
The variances of the populations must be equal.
The null hypothesis (H0) for ANOVA is that the mean is the same for all groups.
H0: μ1 = μ2 = μ3
The alternative or research hypothesis (H1) is that the mean is not the same for all groups.
H1: μ1 ≠ μ2 ≠ μ3
A math teacher predicts that students will learn most effectively with a constant background sound, as opposed to an unpredictable sound or no sound at all.
She randomly divides 24 students into 3 groups of 8. All students study a passage of text for 30 minutes. Those in group 1 study with background sound at a constant volume in the background. Those in group 2 study with noise that changes volume periodically. Those in group 3 study with no sound at all.
After studying, all students take a test over the material. Their scores were:
Constant sound 7 4 6 8 6 6 2 9
Random sound 5 5 3 4 4 7 2 2
No sound 2 4 7 1 2 1 5 5

any value inside a defined interval. Could be fractional or with decimal point.
Example: times, grades, prices, weight, etc.
They are discrete (integer) or continuous (integer, fractional or with decimals).
They are measured using nominal scales where there is no order for the categories. For example, hair color, eye colors, etc.
Mean
13, 18, 13, 14, 13, 16, 14, 21, 13
The mean is basically the average:
(13 + 18 + 13 + 14 + 13 + 16 + 14 + 21 + 13) / 9 = 15
Mode
13, 18, 13, 14, 13, 16, 14, 21, 13
The mode is the number that is repeated more often than any other, so 13 is the mode.
13, 18, 13, 14, 13, 16, 14, 21, 13
13 is repeated 4 times, more than any other value.
Median
13, 18, 13, 14, 13, 16, 14, 21, 13
The median is the middle value, so I'll have to rewrite the list in order.
13, 13, 13, 13, 14, 14, 16, 18, 21
1, 2, 4, 7
In this case, there’s no middle value implicit, so we have to take the average of the two middle values.
1, 2, 4, 7
(2+4) ÷ 2 = 3
Get the mean, mode, and median
2, 9, 6, 2, 4, 6, 8, 9, 3, 6, 8, 9, 6, 7, 7, 1, 5, 6
Ponderated Mean
When the values from which the mean is obtained have different weights or ponderations.
Example:
For the final grade of a class, the following ponderation is considered:
1st Partial 10%
2nd Partial 20%
3rd Partial 30%
Final Exam 40%
If George has the grades 75, 95, 100, and 80 respectively, find the ponderated mean of his semester.
Example:
A student has to present a selection exam, which consists of two parts: Math, with a value of 70% in the exam; and Physics, with a value of 30% in the exam.
If the student got 60 on the Math exam, and 70 in Physics, what is the student’s grade in the exam?
What would be the student’s grade if Math and Phyiscs had the same value in the exam (50% each)?
The mean annual wage for a company’s employees is $5,000. For men, it was $5,200, and for women it was $4,200. Find the percentage of men and women that work at this company.

Variance
It can be considered as the square distance between the values observed (variable), and the expected value of those values altogether (mean).
μ = mean of the population,
N = number of scores
= variance.
In a population
= mean of the sample
n = the total number of values of the sample.
In a sample
The (n – 1) in the denominator gives an unbiased estimate of the population variance,
Standard Deviation
Is a measure of the dispersion of a collection of values; it’s measured against the mean.
The standard deviation is simply the square root of the variance.
It is the most commonly used measure of spread.
Take the dogs heights:
600 , 470, 170, 430, 300
Find the mean of the heights.
Calculate the difference between each height and the mean.
Take each difference and square it.
Find the sum of the squared values.
Divide the sum by (n1)
The result is the variance of the sample.
Now, we can know which values are acceptable or normal by finding the standard deviation (square root of the variance).

Normal Distribution
Determination of Sample Size
ANOVA
Since the bellshaped curve is symmetric, the probability of deviations from the mean are comparable in either direction.
When you want to describe the probability for a continuous variable, you do so by describing the area under a "bellshaped" curve.
Standard Normal Distribution
is defined as the normal distribution with a
mean = zero (μ = 0)
standard deviation = one (σ= 1).
The normal random variable of a standard normal distribution is called a “Z” score or “Z” distance.
In a “One  Sigma Rule”, (Z = 1, 1) or σ from the mean, the probability (area under the standard normal curve) is 68%.
In a “Two  Sigma Rule”, (Z = 2, 2) or 2σ from the mean, the probability (area under the standard normal curve) is 95%.
In a “Three  Sigma Rule”, (Z = 3, 3) or 3σ from the mean, the probability (area under the standard normal curve) is 99.7%.

How large should a sample be in a specific situation?
If a larger sample than necessary is used, resources are wasted; if the sample is too small, the objectives of the analysis may not be achieved.
What degree of precision is desired?
the greater the degree of desired precision, the larger will be the necessary sample size.
Suppose we would like to conduct a poll among eligible voters in a city in order to determine the percentage who intend to vote for the Democratic candidate in an upcoming election.
We specify that we want the probability to be
95.5%
that we will estimate the percentage that will vote Democratic within
+/ 1
percentage point.
What is the required sample size?

Pc = confidence level
e = confidence interval or desired level of precision expressed in percentage or decimals.
p = estimation of proportion
If we observe from the chart, the estimate of proportion (p) yields a maximum variability at (p = 0.5). This provides a more conservative approach when obtaining our required sample size (n).
Thus, if not stated directly, the estimation of proportion (p) can be assumed to be 0.5 for maximum variability.

They have decided that their estimate needs to be accurate within plus or minus onetenth of a visit, and they want to be 95% sure that their estimate does not differ from true number of visits by more than onetenth of a visit. Previous research has shown that the standard deviation is .7 visits. What is the required sample size?
Confidence Interval Estimate for a Mean
A random sample of 16 public school teachers in a particular state has a mean salary of $33,000 with a standard deviation of $1,000. Construct a 99 percent confidence interval estimate for the true mean salary for public school teachers for the given state.
For example, you want to know the average amount of time a student at Ohio State University spends listening to music per day, using an MP3 player. The average time for the entire population of OSU students that are MP3player users is the parameter you’re looking for. Certain that you can’t ask every student who uses an MP3 player at OSU this question, you take a random sample of students and find the average from there.
Suppose the average time a student uses an MP3 player per day to listen to music based on a random sample of
1,000 OSU students
is
2.5 hours
, and the standard deviation is
0.5 hours
.
Is it right to say that the population of all OSUstudent MP3player owners use their players an average of 2.5 hours per day for music listening? No.
You hope and may assume that the average for the whole population is close to 2.5, but it probably isn’t exact. After all, you’re only sampling a tiny fraction of the 60,000 member population of all OSU students. The fact is that sample results vary from sample to sample.
The solution is to not only report the average from your sample, but along with it, report some measure of how much you expect that sample average to vary from one sample to the next, with a certain level of confidence.
You want to cover your bases, so to speak (at least most of the time). The number that you use to represent this level of precision in your results is called the
margin of error.
You take your sample average and add and subtract the margin of error (to get that plusorminus factor going), which gives you a confidence interval for the average time all OSU students use their MP3 players.

When the variance is not known but has to be estimated from sample data, you should use the tdistribution rather than standard normal distribution.
When the sample size (n) is large, say 100 or above, the tdistribution is very similar to the standard normal distribution.
However, with smaller sample sizes (i.e. n = 5), the tdistribution has relatively more “scores” in its tails than does the standard normal distribution.
As a result, you have to extend farther from the mean to contain a given proportion of the area.
Establishing Test Hypotheses (Null Hypothesis and Alternative Hypothesis)
In statistics, the only way of supporting your hypothesis, (H1), is to reject the null hypothesis, (H0
).
Rather than trying to show that (H
¹
), or the alternative hypothesis, is correct, we must show that the null hypothesis, (H
o
), is likely to be wrong – we have to “reject” or “nullify” the null hypothesis , (H

A OneWay ANOVA or (Analysis of Variance) is a way to test the equality of three or more means at one time by using variances.
Assumptions when using ANOVA:
The populations from which the samples were obtained must be approximately normally distributed.
The samples must be independent.
The variances of the populations must be equal.
The null hypothesis (H0) for ANOVA is that the mean is the same for all groups.
H0: μ1 = μ2 = μ3
The alternative or research hypothesis (H1) is that the mean is not the same for all groups.
H1: μ1 ≠ μ2 ≠ μ3
A math teacher predicts that students will learn most effectively with a constant background sound, as opposed to an unpredictable sound or no sound at all.
She randomly divides 24 students into 3 groups of 8. All students study a passage of text for 30 minutes. Those in group 1 study with background sound at a constant volume in the background. Those in group 2 study with noise that changes volume periodically. Those in group 3 study with no sound at all.
After studying, all students take a test over the material. Their scores were:
