Questions to be Graded 1. What are the top two groups whose results are reflected by the t ratios in Tables 2 and 3?
Program Effects on Cardiovascular Risk Factors - Table 2: this table describes the effects of the health promotion program on common reversible cardiovascular risk factors such as cholesterol, triglycerides, BMI, and systolic blood pressure. Program effects on Health Behavior - Table 3: this table describes the effects of the health promotion program on modifiable health behaviors such as health responsibility, exercise, diet behavior, stress management, and smoking. 2. Which t ratio in Table 2 represents the greatest relative or standardized difference between the pretest and 3 months outcomes? Is this t ratio statistically significant? Provide a rationale for your answer.
The total risk score is 4.14, the greatest relative or standardized difference between pretest and 3 month outcomes. This t ratio has a statistical significance of 0.05 - the least acceptable value for statistical significance. Also the larger the t ratio, the smaller the observed p value and increased odds of being able to reject the null hypothesis. 3. Which t-ratio listed in Table 3 represents the smallest relative difference between the pretest and 3 months? Is this t ratio statistically significant? What does this result mean?
Total health behavior at -3.02 is the smallest t ratio that is statistically significant. The smallest relative difference that is not statistically significant is stress management at -0.63. The reason that this ratio is not statistically significant is because the value used to determine significance was lower than 0.05. The smaller t ratio has an increased p value and the odds of being able to reject the null hypothesis are diminished. This result means

Ans: The control group had the least amount of variability (SD 10.34) because the control group was not provided the same resources that the experimental group was provided. 6.

2217 Words | 9 PagesAlternatively, we reject the null hypothesis, if the p value is less than the significance level Substituting the value we get t = 43.74-5014.6396/50 = -3.02 The p value corresponding to t = -3.02 and 49 d.f. is 0.002 which is smaller than the significance level. The value of the test statistic is in the critical region and hence it is significant. Therefore, we reject the null hypothesis at 5% level of significance. The p-value is 0.002 which is smaller than the significance level.

Q: In Panel A of Table 2, the researchers contrast mean and median values of revenues, revenue forecast errors, earnings, earnings forecast errors and abnormal stock returns in 14-week quarters relative to all 13-week quarters. By comparison, all revenue metrics in 14-week quarters are higher, on average, than corresponding metrics in 13-week

4266 Words | 18 PagesIn hypothesis testing, the smaller the p value the more important it is. It is usually compared with the level of significance value and if it is lower, the null hypothesis is rejected. If it is higher than the null hypothesis is not rejected. It is important to note that a very small p value is an indication that there is a greater chance of the null hypothesis being rejected.

Chi- square tests and rank sum tests were specific to baseline and post intervention call light use between the two units. The fall rate before the intervention was 3.37 per 1,000 patient days. The fall rate post intervention was 2.6 per 1,000 patient days. The author noted that although the decrease was not statistically significant (p= 0.672), it was clinically significant at a 23% reduction in patient falls.

1730 Words | 7 PagesThere is a very low probability (5% at most) that the annual income for the data from AJ DAVIS is less than $50,000. The way that we concluded this was to test the probability that the annual income of our customers is $50,000 versus the probability that the average annual income was less than $50,000. What we found was that there is a 95% chance that the average annual income of our customers is between $69,997.9 and $70,001.8. This was also backed with a p-value (which determines the strength of the evidence) that showed weak evidence against the average income equaling $50,000. Since we cannot deny that the annual income average is $50,000, we have no choice but to keep it as a consideration moving forward.

Getting rid of PAYOR variable didn’t have much of a significant change on our PHYS p-value as it did for our Intercept and DAYS. The overall p-value changed from 2.73E-63 to 1.51E-64, however, the number is still low and there is still a low chance of inaccuracies in this model right now. In order to make this model more accurate, I am going to take PHYS out of the
