Study Notes
Statistical Inference
 Involves using data analysis to infer properties of an underlying probability distribution.
 Crucial factors include costbenefit analysis, client and public acceptability, ethical/legal concerns.
Probability Theory
 Describes outcomes and events expected to occur in a population over time.
 Sampling distributions help assess probabilities of outcomes arising by chance.
Hypothesis Testing
 Alternative Hypothesis (H1): Indicates a predicted significant difference or relationship.
 Null Hypothesis (H0): States no relationship exists; a neutral and objective stance in research.
 Example hypotheses relate to relationships such as NMAT scores and academic achievement.
Types of Correlation
 Pearson’s r: Assesses correlation between quantitative data; identifies positive or negative correlations.

Spearman Rank Order Correlation: Nonparametric version suitable for ordinal or interval data.
 Steps include ranking data, calculating rank differences, and summing squared differences.
Measure of Association
 Phi Coefficient: Measures association between binary variables (dichotomous); relevant for contingency tables.
 Example analyzes the relationship between gender and pain experiences among workers.
Suggested Interpretation of Measures of Association
 Values above 0.70 indicate very strong positive relationships, while those below 0.70 indicate very strong negative relationships.
 Intermediate values suggest different strengths of association.
Kendall’s Q
 Provides insights into concordant and discordant pairs with smaller value measures than Spearman.
 Calculation formula: Kendall’s Tau = (C – D) / (C + D), where C = concordant pairs, D = discordant pairs.
TTest
 Compares mean scores between two groups to identify statistical differences.
 Paired TTest: Used for means of continuous variables in two nonindependent groups (e.g., before and after treatment).
 Independent Sample TTest: Compares means of two independent samples (e.g., Diabetic vs Nondiabetic blood pressure).
ChiSquare Distribution
 A nonparametric test assessing relationships between categorical variables.
 Evaluates whether observed frequencies differ from expected frequencies using a Chisquare statistic.
 Interpretation based on pvalue: If p < 0.05, the frequencies differ significantly; if p > 0.05, they do not.
Important Notes on ChiSquare Test Interpretation
 A higher chisquare statistic indicates poor fit between observed and expected data; lower indicates a good fit.
 It requires nominal data and is commonly presented in a 2x2 contingency table format for analysis.
