Question

Scenario C. The flu shot changes every year, and some years it is more effective at preventing the flu than others. A group of researchers wants to compare the effectiveness of the flu shot this year to the flu shot last year.

**What would be a type I error for this
scenario?**

**What would be a type II error for this
scenario?**

Answer #1

First we construct the null and alternative hypothesis

The null hypothesis is the hypothesis of no difference, that is we say that there is no difference in effectiveness between this year and last year . The alternative hypothesis is the opposite of null hypothesis .

The null and alternative hypothesis

H0: effectiveness of flu shot this year is same as that of last year

Ha: effectiveness of flu shot this year is more than that of last year

Type I error is the error of rejecting the null hypothesis when it is true

That is on the basis of the test , we reject H0 and conclude that this year's shot is more effective than last year , when in reality there is no difference in effectiveness. The health department takes measures to introduce the new flu shot, which was not necessary.

Type II error is the error of accepting the null hypothesis when it is false .

That is on the basis of the test , we fail to reject H0 and conclude that there is no difference in effectiveness between this year and last year , when in reality this year's shot is more effective than last year . The new shot will not be introduced , which would have been better in combating fight against flu.

Information: Flu season comes every year and it
is time to look at who in our community is most likely going to get
us sick. Using a representative sample of the general population in
the United States, we have constructed a table that shows flu
vaccination status by age group. People were categorized as
vaccinated for the 2015 flu season if they received influenza
vaccine between September and November of 2014. Since we are
confident in the representativeness of our...

A team of researchers has developed a new drug to treat atopic
dermatitis, also known as eczema. They want to know if this new
drug procedures better results than a commonly prescribed older
drug. The side effects of the two drugs are equivalent. The new
drug would be more expensive to produce compared to the older drug.
To address their research question, they will randomly assign
patients to either the new or old drug. Each patient will be
examined by...

The National Cancer Institute conducted a 2-year study to
determine whether cancer death rates for areas
near nuclear power plants are higher than for
areas without nuclear facilities. A spokesperson
for the Cancer Institute said, "From the data at hand, there was no
convincing evidence of any increased risk of death from any of the
cancers surveyed due to living near nuclear
facilities.” (1 points for each)
Let p denote the proportion of the population in areas
near nuclear...

Some college graduates employed full-time work more than 40
hours per week, and some work fewer than 40 hours per week. We
suspect that the mean number of hours worked per week by college
graduates, μ , is different from 40 hours and wish to do a
statistical test. We select a random sample of college graduates
employed full-time and find that the mean of the sample is 42 hours
and that the standard deviation is 4 hours.
What are...

It is claimed that a new treatment is more effective
than the standard treatment for prolonging the
lives of terminal cancer patients. The standard treatment has been
in use for a long time, and from
records in medical journals, the mean survival period is known to
be 4.2 years. The new treatment
is administered to 80 patients and their duration of survival
recorded. The sample mean and the
standard deviation are found to be 4.5 and 1.1 years, respectively.

REQUIRED:
1. Your rough draft is missing a subject line. Write an
effective subject line that is appropriate for the Scenario
described above.
2. Evaluate the first sentence of your rough draft. If
this is effective, write “Correct.” If not, create an appropriate
first sentence.
3. Your rough draft is missing a
goodwill close. Write an effective goodwill close
that is appropriate for the Scenario described above.
Directions: Study both the scenario and e-mail message
rough draft below. Then, answer...

A consumer advocacy group is doing a large study on car rental
practices. Among other things, the consumer group would like to do
a statistical test regarding the mean monthly mileage, μ, of cars
rented in the U.S. this year. The consumer group has reason to
believe that the mean monthly mileage of cars rented in the U.S.
this year is less than last year's mean, which was 2750 miles. The
group plans to do a statistical test regarding the...

Information on a large packet of seeds indicates that the
germination rate is p0=92%. Some researchers claim that the
proportion of germination should be higher than that.
(a) (1 point) For testing this claim, what is the appropriate
null hypothesis and alternative hypothesis?
(b) (2 points) Now 300 seeds are chosen randomly with 290
germinated to test this claim. Compute the test statistic and get
the rejection region at the significance level α = 0.05.
(c) (2 points) Report the...
