    Is mean significant and not abnormal?

    Hi everyone! I am having some troubles with interpreting the significance of mean. Mean= 0.19609 St. Dev=0.12341 n=141 I get t-statistic of 18.86763( ratio mean/ st. error) I thought that for the mean to be significant and expected (not abnormal) t-stat has to be within the interval...

    T test for different groups over time

    Hi all, I know that paired t-tests are appropriate for the same group of people at several points in time while independent t-tests are for 2 different groups of persons. But what about when it is a combination of both (ie: looking at different people overtime?) 1) I want to compare 2...

    interpreting, reporting t-test and multiple regression using log-transformed variable

    Dear all I wonder if anyone can help with this question. I have to log-transformed (log 10) a number of my variables (skewed distributions). My question is, how do I report the statistical test? e.g. if I perform a t-test, do I need to back-transform my means and SD and the t-statistics? If...

    Please help! T-test results & interpretation

    Hi, please help me with this simple question that no one at my uni seems to be able to answer! I have 3 groups (n=20) where I'm looking to establish differences pre & post treatment (2 intervention groups, 1 control). All are normally distributed. I have done paired sample t-tests on all 3...

    Matched vs. Unmatched t-tests

    I am conducting a t-test and have to choose between an unmatched and matched test. I am looking at the vaccination percentage rate between men and women in a given year. Would this be a matched test? My understanding is that in a matched test, the two variables need to be independent, but I am...

    Simple question about individual values being sig different from population mean.

    Hi I was wondering if someone could help. Say I have a sample of numbers 5,6,7,5,6,7,5,6,5,4 and I want to test which of these individual numbers is significantly different from my population mean of 5, how do I go about doing it? I've carried out a t-test and found that the sample mean...

    1-Tailed Levene Test

    I am interested in testing if the variance of one data set is bigger than another set. I thought about using a simple F-test, but I am not sure the populations are normal. Is there a 1-tailed variant of the Levene Test for Equality of Variances? I understand that the Levene Test performs a...

    Significance test for differences in baseline and re measurement rates

    Hi, I need help in knowing which test to perform with this analysis. I have two groups (lets say group A and B). A study was performed with initial rates of heart failures in group A and B (i.e, baseline rates) were measured. After 6 months of follow up the heart failure rates in group A and...

    Parametric vs. non-parametric test.

    Dear all, group 1: treatment A group 2: treatment B thickness of the skin was compared between group 1 (n=20) and group 2 (n=20) I have used a non-parametric Mann-Whitney test resulting in a highly significant difference. Now, the reviewer of my paper has rejected the submission...

    the t-values for regression coefficients

    How can I calculate the t-values of the regression coeffs if I have the sample size and the correlation matrix only? Is this possible? Thanks in advance.

    using a co-factor when comparing two groups?

    Hi, I would like to compare two groups, one treated, one control. Usually, I would simply use a t-test, assuming normal distribution and equal variance. However, I would now like to use another parameter as a co-factor: I am comparing two groups of animals and the effect I observe...

    t-tests after three-way ANOVA?

    Hi all, I've just run a three-way ANOVA on my data (3 IVs, 1 DV). I've got some main effects, as well as a three-way interaction effect. Am I supposed to run t-tests after the ANOVA in order to work out where the significant interaction effect is stemming from? Thanks
