Question

- Consider the
**non-parametric methods**for creating confidence intervals for a single mean and hypothesis testing for a single mean. Answer each of the following questions with**one**of the following options: confidence interval estimation, hypothesis testing, both, or neither.- (1 point) Which method involves shifting the sample data?
- (1 point) Which method creates a distribution that is centered at the observed sample mean?
- (1 point) Which method involves using sample data and sampling with replacement?
- (1 point) Which method requires that the sampling distribution of the sample mean is known?
- (1 point) Which method is appropriate when our sample data did not come from a normal population and the sample sizes are small?

Answer #1

**1)**

**Confidence interval method involves the shifting the
sample data**

**2)**

**The confidence interval estimation method creates a
distribution that is centered at the observed sample
mean**

**3)**

**The method involves using sample data and sampling
with replacement is both confidence interval estimation, hypothesis
testing.**

**4)**

**The method requires that the sampling distribution
of the sample mean is known is neither confidence interval
estimation, hypothesis testing.**

**5)**

**Confidence interval method is appropriate when our
sample data did not come from a normal population and the sample
sizes are small**

Consider the non-parametric methods for creating confidence
intervals for a single mean and hypothesis testing for a single
mean. Answer each of the following questions with one of the
following options: confidence interval estimation, hypothesis
testing, both, or neither.
a. (1 point) Which method involves shifting the sample data?
b. (1 point) Which method creates a distribution that is
centered at the observed sample mean?
c. (1 point) Which method involves using sample data and
sampling with replacement?
d. (1...

The procedures for (1) determining confidence intervals to
estimate the mean and (2) hypothesis testing based on the
difference between one sample mean and a test value or on the
difference between two sample means both rely on sampling
distributions. Explain why sampling distributions are important for
each procedure.

Describe the connection between confidence intervals and
hypothesis testing, in particular for single sample T tests.

How does the population mean and proportion affect confidence
intervals and hypothesis testing?

A researcher is testing a hypothesis of a single mean. The
critical z value for = .05 and a one-tailed test is 1.645.
The observed z value from sample data is 1.13. The
decision made by the researcher based on this information is to
______ the null hypothesis.

a.
How well do the 95% confidence intervals do at capturing the
true population mean when
samples sizes are small?
b. Does a larger sample size mean that the intervals are more
likely to capture the true population value? Why? Note THIS is
an
important concept and relates back to the Sampling Distribution
of Sample Means.

We use Student’s t distribution when creating confidence
intervals for the mean when the population standard deviation is
unknown because....
We are estimating two parameters from the data and wish to have
a wider confidence interval
The central limit theorem does not apply in this case
We do not want a confidence interval that is symmetric about the
sample mean
We have greater certainty of our estimate

Confidence intervals are used in statistics to show the amount
of uncertainty present within a statistic. These intervals are
primarily used with a margin of error to outline the predicted
range of values. Therefore, confidence intervals are used in
statistics to measure uncertainty. Confidence intervals are
paramount as they help reduce the level of risks and uncertainties.
Notably, they look at the sample size and the potential variations
that may...

Along with interest rates, life expectancy is a component in
pricing financial annuities. Suppose that you know that last year's
average life expectancy was 77 years for your annuity holders. Now
you want to know if your clients this year have a longer life
expectancy, on average, so you randomly sample n=20 of your

As we have seen in class, hypothesis testing, and confidence
intervals are the most common inferential tools used in statistics.
