    chi square or unpaired t-test? (or other??)

    Hi - I am looking to compare two groups - mobility activity after surgery. Group 1 - is a 'low ability' (ie, very old, frail) Group 2 - is 'high ability' (able to move around before surgery). The numbers in each group are NOT means, they are simply counts of patients. Ie, on the first day, 37...

    Thesis Help Request - Hypothesis Testing

    Hi I am doing an event study and my null hypothesis is CAAR=0 and alternative is CAAR does not equal 0 (2 tailed t-test). CAAR is cumulative average abnormal returns. Can a two tailed test be used to give directional conclusions, e.g. if the CAAR value is 1.5% and is statistically significant at...

    Sample size when adding two means

    I want to compare a theoretical mean to a measured mean. But I determine this theoretical mean from adding two measured means. For example, let's say I want to determine if mixing a shade of white paint with a shade of black paint yields a particular gray paint (let’s pretend I can quantify...

    What is the best statistical test/approach for pre- and post-intervention analysis?

    Dear colleagues, We assessed several psychological measures (e.g. self-compassion scale, five-facets mindfulness questionnaire, satisfaction with life scale) before and after a Mindfulness-Based Psychoeducational Program for groups of people with acquired brain injuries. We would like to...

    Paired test?

    Hi, I have the following problem. In my experimental setup I have four tissue samples from the same animal in each experiment, two from one side and two from the other. The original plan is to apply a substance alone on a sample from one side and the substance mixed with the inhibitor on...

    Choosing the proper statistical test for a lottery recommendation system

    Dear friends, I'm now working on the recommendation system to recommend football match lottery to the users. The users may choose a match to bet arbitrary amount of money, e.g. $2, $4, or even $20,000. I want to compare if two recommendation algorithms are different (or if one outperforms...

    Test wanted for comparing algorithms

    Study design Suppose I want to compare algorithm runtime performance (measured in seconds) of different algorithms for the same problem type. There are several problem instances for this problem type on which the algorithms are tested and performance is measured. Possible tests As far as I...

    What kind of t-test would I use for this?

    One variable is injuries yes/no, the other variable is rating how much in control they felt (0=none,100=total). Basically if injuries causes low levels of perceived control. I have to use a t-test, but there are so many and I really don't know which one.

    Matt Whiteny U test Vs T test

    Hello fellow statisticians, Problem definition: I need to test whether the difference between the "mean" utilization metrics of two machines is statistically significant. Given Data: Utilisation data is available for two machines for more than 100 days. Therefore, the mean, standard...

    T Test

    Hi T-Test is used instead of Z-Test when we don't know the standard deviation, or when the sample size is too small (less than 31) When we know the standard deviation but the sample size is small, do we use T-Test with sample standard deviation (S)? or T-Test with the known standard deviation...

    How would you enter this data?

    I have to do a t-test (it doesn't say which type of t-test) in SPSS about the olfactory scores of smokers and non-smokers. For smokers, we are given the scores so I know how to enter that in SPSS. For non-smokers, we are not given the scores, it simply says “On a test of olfactory sensitivity...

    Which test should I use?

    Hey everyone, I would like to determine if there is a difference between two sets of data. The data is from two separate treatment groups on yeast, and we have ran each experiment lots of times and have created a normal distribution for each set of data. If I want to test for a statistical...

    Dependent Samples T-test - different formulas?

    I have a question regarding hypothesis testing when the samples are not independent. The formula I know for the test statistic for a paired samples t test is where you divide the mean difference by the standard error. I've come across another formula that instead subtracts the mean 'after'...

    Can someone please confirm if I have selected the right tests for hypothesis testing?

    Hi, this is my first post here, hope that I'm doing this correctly! I'm taking a statistics course for my master's where we need to do some hypothesis testing with a pre-defined data set using R. I am unsure about what the most appropriate statistical test to use is, so I was wondering if...
