  82. 82. Steps for testing a hypothesis • State Null Hypothesis • State alternate hypothesis • Fix the alpha error • Identify the test statistic
  83. 83. • Find out the critical value • Calculate the value for the identified statistical test Difference in means/ SE • If the calculated value is > the table value(critical value)- Reject Null Hypothesis
  84. 84. • In a study conducted on a sample of 400 adults, it was found that mean daily requirement of Vit. A was 900 I.U. From the existing literature the same was documented as 930 I.U with a SE of 4.5 I.U. Does the study finding differ from the existing literature finding significantly?
  85. 85. Null hypothesis Alpha Error – 5% Test static –Z test SE = 4.5 Z = 930-900/4.5=6.67
  86. 86. – For alpha error 5%, critical Z value = 1.96 – 6.67 >1.96 So we will Reject null hypothesis – There is a significant difference – P value
  87. 87. • After applying a statistical test an investigator get the p value as 0.01. What does it mean?
  88. 88. • Null hypothesis states there is no difference,If there is any difference it is due to chance • P value = If the null hypothesis is true the probability of the sample variation to occur by chance • P value 0.05= probability of the sample variation by chance is only 5% if null hypothesis was true • 95% the sample variation is not due to chance,& there is a difference. So we will reject NH
  89. 89. • P = 0.01 - probability of the sample variation by chance is only 1% if null hypothesis was true • 99 % the sample variation is not due to chance,& there is a difference. So we will reject NH • As p value decreases the difference become more significant • For practical purpose p value < 0.05 ; the difference is significant
  90. 90. In assessing the association between maternal nutritional status and Birth weight of the newborns two investigators A and B studied separately and found significant results with p values 0.02 & 0.04 respectively. From this what can you infer about the magnitude of association found by the two investigators

  108. 108. In a group of patients presenting to a hospital emergency with abdominal pain, 30% of patients have acute appendicitis, 70% of patients with appendicitis have a temperature greater than 37.50c and 40% of patients without appendictis have a temperature greater than 37.50c. Considering these findings which of the following statement is correct ? a) Sensitivity of temperature greater than 37.50c as a marker for appendicitis is 21/49 b) Specificity of temperature grater than 37.50c as a marker for appendicitis is 42/70 c) The positive predictive value of temperature greater than 37.50c as marker for appendicitis is 21/30 d) Specificity of the test will depend upon the prevalence of appendicitis in the population to which it is applied.
