- 2. Data collection Raw data Graphs Information Descriptive statistics Measures • location • spread Estimation Statistical Decision inference making Hypothesis testing 2
- 3. • Hypothesis testing is a procedure for making inferences about a population• A hypothesis test gives the opportunity to test whether a change has occurred or a real difference exists
- 4. • A hypothesis is a statement or claim that something is true H0 always contains = sign – Null hypothesis H0 • No effect or no difference • Must be declared true/false – Alternative hypothesis H1 • True if H0 found to be false – If H0 is false – reject H0 and accept H1 – If H0 is true – accept H0 and reject H1
- 5. • State the null and alternative hypotheses that would be used to test each of the following statements:-• A manufacturer claims that the average life of a transistor is at least 1000 hours (h) H0: µ = 1000 H1: µ > 1000• A pharmaceutical firm maintains that the average time for a certain drug to take effect is 15 mins H0: µ = 15 H1: µ ≠ 15• The mean starting salary of graduates is higher than R50000 per annum H0: µ = 50000 H1: µ > 50000
- 6. • Hypothesis testing consists of 6 steps: 1. State the hypothesis 2. State the value of α 3. Calculate the test statistic 4. Determine the critical value 5. Make a decision 6. Draw conclusion 6
- 7. Hypothesis Testing Step 1 One/Two populations State the hypothesis Two tailed H0: parameter = ? H1: parameter ≠ ?Ho – Null hypothesis Right tailedH1 – Alternative Hypothesis H0: parameter = ? H1: parameter > ? Left tailed H0: parameter = ? H1: parameter < ? 7
- 8. Hypothesis Testing Step 2State the value of α Decision Actual situation H0 is true H0 is false Do not Correct reject H0 decision Correct Reject H0 decision 8
- 9. Hypothesis Testing Step 2 State the value of α Decision Actual situation H0 is true H0 is false Two types of errors: Do not Correct Type II error = reject H0 decision Type I error Correct Reject H0 = decisionα - Probability of Type I error Level of significance 1%, 5%, 10% Determine critical value/s 9
- 10. LEVEL OF SIGNIFICANCE • Probability (α) of committing a type I error is called the LEVEL OF SIGNIFICANCE • α is specified before the test is performed • You can control the Type I error by deciding, before the test is performed, what risk level you are willing to take in rejecting H0 when it is in fact true • Researchers usually select α levels of 0.05 or smaller 10
- 11. Hypothesis Testing Step 3Calculate value of test statisticThere are different test statistics for testing:• Single population – Mean, proportion, variance• Difference between two population – Means, proportions, variances 11
- 12. REJECTION AND NON-REJECTION REGIONS• To decide whether H0 will be rejected or not , a value, called the TEST STATISTIC has to be calculated by using certain sample results• Distribution of test statistic often follows a normal or t distribution.• Distribution can be divided into 2 regions:- – A region of rejection – A region of non- rejection 12
- 13. Hypothesis Testing Step 4Determine the critical value/values Right tailed Two tailed Left tailed H1: parameter > ? H1: parameter ≠ ? H1: parameter < ? H0 H0 H0 α α/2 α/2 α - Critical value – from tables 13

- 18. Hypothesis test for Population Mean, n ≥ 30- population need not be normally distributed- sample will be approximately normal Testing H0: μ = μ0 for n ≥ 30 Alternative Decision rule: Test statistic hypothesis Reject H0 if H1: μ ≠ μ0 |z| ≥ Z1- α/2 x 0 z H1: μ > μ0 z ≥ Z1- α s H1: μ < μ0 z ≤ -Z1- α n 18 Use σ if known
- 19. • Example – It will be cost effective to employee an additional staff member at a well known take away restaurant if the average sales for a day is more than R11 000 per day. – A sample of 60 days were selected and the average sales for the 60 days were R11 841 with a standard deviation of R1 630. – Test if it will be cost effective to employ an additional staff member. – Assume a normal distributed population. Use α = 0,05.
- 20. • Solution – The population of interest is the daily sales – We want to show that the average sales is more than R11 000 per day. – H1 : μ > 11 000 – The null hypothesis must specify a single value of the parameter – H0 : μ = 11 000 – Need to test if R11 841( x ) is significant more than R11 000(μ)
- 21. • Solution At α = 0,05 if it will be cost effective to – H0 : μ = 11 000 employ an additional staff member – the average monthly income is more – H1 : μ > 11 000 than R11 000 – α = 0,05 x 0 11841 11000 α = 0,05z 3,99 – s 1630 0 z1-α 1,65 n 60 Accept H0 Reject H0 – Reject H0 Critical value Z 1-α = Z 0.95 = 1.65
- 22. • Hypothesis test for Population Mean, n < 30 – If σ is unknown we use s to estimate σ – We need to replace the normal distribution with the t-distribution with (n - 1) degrees of freedom Testing H0: μ = μ0 for n < 30 Alternative Decision rule: Test statistic hypothesis Reject H0 if H1: μ ≠ μ0 |t| ≥ tn - 1;1- α/2 x 0 t H1: μ > μ0 t ≥ tn-1;1- α s n H1: μ < μ0 t ≤ -tn-1;1- α 22
- 23. Concept QuestionsQuestions 13 – 19, page 267, textbook 23
- 24. • Example – Health care is a major issue world wide. One of the concerns is the waiting time for patients at clinics. – Government claims that patients will wait less than 30 minutes on average to see a doctor. – A random sample of 25 patients revealed that their average waiting time was 28 minutes with a standard deviation of 8 minutes. – On a 1% level of significance can we say that the claim from government is correct? 24
- 25. • Solution – The population of interest is the waiting time at clinics – Want to test the claim that the waiting time is less than 30 minutes – H1 : μ < 30 – The null hypothesis must specify a single value of the parameter – H0 : μ = 30 – Need to test if 28( x ) is significant less than 30(μ) 25
- 26. • Solution At α = 0,01 we can not say that – H0 : μ = 30 the average waiting time at – H1 : μ < 30 clinics is less than 30 minutes – α = 0,01 α = 0,01 x 0 28 30 t 1, 25 – s 8 -t1-α -2,492 0 n 25 Reject H0 Accept H0 – Accept H0 tn-1;1-α = t24;0.99= -2.492 26
- 27. • Hypothesis testing for Population proportion number of successes x – Sample proportion p = ˆ = sample size n – Proportion always between 0 and 1 Testing H0: p = p0 for n ≥ 30 Alternative Decision rule: Test statistic hypothesis Reject H0 if H1: p ≠ p0 |z| ≥ Z1- α/2 p p0 ˆ z H1: p > p0 z ≥ Z1- α p0 (1 p0 ) H1: p < p0 z ≤ -Z1- α n 27
- 28. • Example – A market research company investigates the claim of a supplier that 35% of potential buyers are preferring their brand of milk – A survey was done in several supermarkets and it was found that 61 of the 145 shoppers indicated that they will buy the specific brand of milk – Assist the research company with the claim of the supplier on a 10% level of significance. 28
- 29. • Solution – The population of interest is the proportion of buyers – Want to test the claim that the proportion is 35% = 0,35 – H0 : p = 0,35 – The alternative hypothesis must specify that the proportion is not 35% – H1 : p ≠ 0,35 – Sample proportion p = number of successes = x 61 0, 42 ˆ sample size n 145 – Need to test if 0,42 p is significant different from 0,35(p) ˆ 29
- 30. • Solution /2 0,05At – = 0 : p = 0,35 not say α H 0,10 we canthat 35%p ≠the clients will – H1 : of 0,35 -z-1,65 z1-/2 1-/2 +1,65 prefer the brand of milk – α = 0,10 Reject H0 Accept H0 Reject H0 p p0 ˆ 0, 42 0,35 z 1, 76 p0 (1 p0 ) 0,35(1 0,35) n 145 Z1-α/2 = Z0.95 = +/- 1.65 – Reject H0 30
- 31. • Hypothesis testing for Population Variance – Draw conclusions about variability in population – Χ2 –distribution with (n - 1) degrees of freedom Testing H0: σ2 = σ20 Alternative Decision rule: Test statistic hypothesis Reject H0 if Χ2 ≤ Χ2n-1;α/2 or H1: σ2 ≠ σ20 (n 1) s 2 Χ2 ≥ Χ2n-1;1- α/2 2 H1: σ2 > σ20 Χ2 ≥ Χ2n-1;1- α 02 H1: σ2 < σ20 Χ2 ≤ Χ2n-1;α 31
- 32. Concept Questions• Questions 20 – 24 page 272 32
- 33. • Example – The variation in the content of a 340ml can of beer should not be more than 10ml2. – To test the validity of this, 25 cans of beers revealed a variance of 12ml2. – On a 5% level of significance can we say the variation in the content of the cans is too large? 33
- 34. • Solution – The population of interest is the variation in content – Want to test the claim that the variance is more than 10ml2 – H1 : σ2 > 10 – The null hypothesis must specify that the variance is 10ml2 – H0 : σ2 = 10 – Need to test if 12(s2) is significant more than 10(σ2) 34
- 35. • Solution – H0 : σ2 = 10 0,05 – H1 : σ2 > 10 – α = 0,05 Χ2n – 1; 1-α +36,42 (n 1) s 2 (25 1)12 2 28,8 Accept H0 Reject H0 02 10 At α = 0,05 we can not say – Accept H0 that the variation in the content of the cans is moreΧ n-1; 1-α = Χ 24; 0.95 = 36.42 2 2 than 10ml2 35
- 36. • Hypothesis tests for comparing two Populations Drawn from different – Difference between two means samples, samples have no relation • Independent samples – Large samples – Small samples Samples are • Dependent samples related – Difference between two proportions – Difference between two variances 36
- 37. • Hypothesis tests for comparing two Populations – H0: Population 1 parameter = Population 2 parameter – H1: Population 1 parameter ≠ Population 2 parameter – H1: Population 1 parameter > Population 2 parameter – H1: Population 1 parameter < Population 2 parameter μ1 / σ21 / p1 μ2 / σ22 / p2
- 38. Difference between two Population Means,independent samples, n1 ≥ 30 and n2 ≥ 30 Testing H0: μ1 = μ2 for n1 ≥ 30 and n2 ≥ 30 Alternative Decision rule: Test statistic hypothesis Reject H0 if H1: μ1 ≠ μ2 |z| ≥ Z1- α/2 x1 x2 z H1: μ1 > μ2 z ≥ Z1- α s12 s2 2 H1: μ1 < μ2 z ≤ -Z1- α n1 n2 38 Use σ12 and σ22 if known
- 39. Example A leading television manufacturer purchasescathode ray tubes from 2 businesses (A and B). Arandom sample of 36 cathode ray tubes frombusiness A showed a mean lifetime of 7.2 yearsand a std dev of 0.8 years, while a random sampleof 40 cathode ray tubes from business B showed amean lifetime of 6.7 years and a std dev of 0.7 yrs.Test at a 1% significance level whether the meanlifetime of the cathode ray tubes from business A islonger than the mean lifetime of business B 39
- 40. Answer Company A: n1 = 36, x1 = 7,2 and s1 = 0,8. Company B: n2 = 40, x 2 = 6,7 and s2 = 0,7. H0: 1 = 2 H1: 1 > 2 = 0,01 x1 x 2 z= s12 s2 2 n1 n 2 7,2 6,7 = 0,8 0,7 2 2 36 40 0,5 = 0,1733 = 2,8852 Z1 = Z0,99 = 2,33 Therefore, reject H0. There is enough evidence to say that the mean lifetime of the tubes from Company A is longer than that of Company B. 40

Thus always: s21 > s22
- 47. • Example• There is a belief that people staying in Cape Town travel less than people staying in Johannesburg. – Random samples of 43 people in Cape Town and 39 in Johannesburg were drawn. – For each person the distance travelled during October were recorded. – Test the belief on a 5% level of significance 47
- 48. • Solution – The population of interest is the km travelled – Samples are large and independent – We want to show that Cape Town travel less than Johannesburg – H1 : μ1 < μ2 – The null hypothesis must specify a single value of the parameter – H0 : μ1 = μ2 48
- 49. The belief that people staying in• From the data: Cape Town travel less than people – Cape Town Johanesburg in Johannesburg is not true staying x1 = 604 x 2 = 633a 5% level of significance on n1 = 43 n 2 = 39 s1 = 64 s 2 = 103 -1,65 0 Reject H0 Accept H0 – H0: μ1 = μ2 – H1: μ1 < μ2 – z x1 x2 604 633 1,51 2 2 2 2 s1 s2 64 103 n1 n2 43 39 – Accept H0 49
- 50. Example• Pathological laboratories have a problem with time it takes a blood sample to be analyzed. They hope by introducing some new equipment, the time taken will be reduced. – Blood samples for 10 different types of test were analyzed by the traditional laboratories and by the newly equipped laboratories. – The time, in minutes, were captured for each test. – Did the time reduce? α = 0,01 50
- 51. • Solution – The population of interest is the test times – The samples are dependent – We want to show that new times is less than the old times – H1 : μ1 > μ2 – The null hypothesis must specify a single value of the parameter – H0 : μ1 = μ2 51

- 54. • Example – A clothing manufacturer introduced two new swim suit ranges on the market. – Of the 266 clients asked if they will wear range A, 85 indicated they will. – Of the 192 clients asked if they will wear range B, 50 indicated they will. – Can we say there is a difference in the preferences of the two ranges. Use α = 0,05. 54
- 55. • Solution – The population of interest is the proportion of clients who will wear the clothing – We want to determine if the proportion of range A differ form the proportion of range B – H1: p1 ≠ p2 – The null hypothesis must specify a single value of the parameter – H0: p1 = p2 55

- 57. • Example Remember: – An important measure to determine 1 has the largerin the Population service delivery variance. banking sector is the variability in the service 2times. Thus always: s21 > s 2 – An experiment was conducted to compare the service times of two bank tellers. – The results from the experiment: • Teller A: nA = 18 and s2A = 4,03 • Teller B: nB = 26 and s2B = 9,49 – Can we say that the variance in service time of teller A is less than that variance of teller B on a 5% level of significance. – We will then test if the variance in service time of teller B is more that the variation of teller A: s2B > s2A 57
- 58. • Solution – The population of interest is the variation in the service time of the two bank tellers. – We want to determine if the variation of teller B is more than the variation of teller A. – H1: S21 > S22 – The null hypothesis must specify a single value of the parameter – H0: S21 = S22 58
