Question

To estimate with a 99% confidence interval, the difference in mean earned income among men and women based on a sample of 30 women and 20 men, would you use for the significance test or confidence interval the t-student or the Z-score values? Why?

Answer #1

In the above problem we use t test for two means.

For z test we have two criterias..

1. the sample size is sufficiently large.

That is sample size greater than or equal to 30

2. The population standard deviations is known.

In the above nothing is mentioned about population standard deviations.

Therefore, we can't go with z test.

For above problem, we can make decisions usingt t test for two sample means.

We can find confidence interval using t test for two means.

A 99% confidence interval estimate of the population mean ? can
be interpreted to mean:
a) if all possible sample are taken and confidence intervals
created, 99% of them would include the true population mean
somewhere within their interval.
b) we have 99% confidence that we have selected a sample whose
interval does include the population mean.
c) we estimate that the population mean falls between the lower
and upper confidence limits, and this type of estimator is correct
99%...

Mary, the counselor, wants to test whether there is any
meaningful difference in depression scores among women and men
clients of hers. She has 13 women clients and 14 men clients. The
mean depression score of men clients is 4.5, while that of women is
5.3. The pooled standard error is 0.5 of the two groups. Is there
any gender difference in depression levels among her women and men
clients?

1a. Given: mean difference between men and women = 2.2; standard
error of mean difference = 0.8; n men = 61, n women = 61.

Ha: u men > u women
You need to compute the t statistic, look up
t critical value and make
decision including likelihood of appropriate
error. You don't have to compute the

2. Using the same information as question one, compute a 99%
confidence interval for the mean difference. Based on the interval,
make a statistical decision about the null hypothesis and briefly
state why you came to your conclusion.
