Types of Statistical Analyses

Five Types of Statistical Analysis:

1. Descriptive analysis: used to describe the data set

2. Inferential analysis: used to generate conclusions about the population’s characteristics based on the sample data

Slide 3

Descriptive Statistics

Tools for summarising, organising, simplifying data.

Understanding Data Via Descriptive Analysis

Two sets of descriptive measures:–Measures of central tendency: used to report a

single piece of information that describes the most typical response to a question

–Measures of variability: used to reveal the typical difference between the values in a set of values

Understanding Data Via Descriptive Analysis Measures of Central Tendency:

– Mode: the value in a string of numbers that occurs most often

– Median: the value whose occurrence lies in the middle of a set of ordered values

– Mean: sometimes referred to as the “arithmetic mean”; the average value characterizing a set of numbers

Understanding Data Via Descriptive Analysis Measures of Variability:

– Frequency distribution reveals the number (percent) of occurrences of each number or set of numbers

– Range identifies the maximum and minimum values in a set of numbers

– Standard deviation indicates the degree of variation in a way that can be translated into a bell-shaped curve distribution

Slide 7

Descriptive statistics

If we wanted to characterize the students in a first year medical class we would find that they are:– Young– Fit– Male & Females

How young? How fit is this class? What is the distribution of males and females?

11/04/2023

Slide 8

Frequency distribution

The frequency with which observations are assigned to each category or point on a measurement scale.– Most basic form of descriptive statistics– May be expressed as a percentage of the total

sample found in each category

11/04/2023

Slide 9

Frequency distribution

The distribution is “read” differently depending upon the measurement level– Nominal scales are read as discrete measurements at each level– Ordinal measures show tendencies, but categories should not be

compared– Interval and ratio scales allow for comparison among categories

Slide 12

Discrete and Continuous data

Data consisting of numerical (quantitative) variables can be further divided into two groups: discrete and continuous.

1. If the set of all possible values, when pictured on the number line, consists only of isolated points.

2. If the set of all values, when pictured on the number line, consists of intervals.

The most common type of discrete variable we will encounter is a

counting variable.

Slide 13

Accuracy & Precision Accuracy: the closeness of the measurements to the “actual” or “real” value

of the physical quantity.– Statistically this is estimated using the standard error of the mean

Precision: is used to indicate the closeness with which the measurements agree with one another.

- Statistically the precision is estimated by the standard deviation of the mean

Precision is related to random errors that can be dealt with using statistics

Accuracy is related to systematic errors and are difficult to deal with using statistics

Slide 14

Accuracy and precision: The target analogy

11/04/2023

Slide 16

Two types of error Systematic error

– Poor accuracy– Definite causes– Reproducible

Random error– Poor precision– Non-specific causes– Not reproducible

11/04/2023

Slide 17

Systematic error

Diagnosis– Errors have consistent signs– Errors have consistent magnitude

Treatment– Calibration– Correcting procedural flaws– Checking with a different procedure

11/04/2023

Slide 18

Random error

Diagnosis– Errors have random sign– Small errors more likely than large errors

Treatment– Take more measurements– Improve technique– Higher instrumental precision

Bar Graphs For categorical data Like a histogram, but with gaps between bars to show

that each bar is a separate group. Useful for showing two samples side-by-side

Pie Chart The pie chart is a commonly used graphical device for presenting relative frequency distributions for qualitative data.

First draw a circle; then use the relative frequencies to subdivide the circle into sectors that correspond to the

relative frequency for each class.

Slide 27

Skewness of distributions Measures look at how lopsided distributions are—how far from the ideal

of the normal curve they are When the median and the mean are different, the distribution is skewed.

The greater the difference, the greater the skew. Distributions that trail away to the left are negatively skewed and those

that trail away to the right are positively skewed If the skewness is extreme, the researcher should either transform the

data to make them better resemble a normal curve or else use a different set of statistics—nonparametric statistics—to carry out the analysis

Symmetry: Kurtosis

A high kurtosis distribution has a sharper "peak" and fatter "tails", while a low kurtosis distribution has a more rounded peak with wider "shoulders".

5. Measures of relationship…

Spearman Rho Pearson r

11/04/2023

Slide 35

correlations

determines whether and to what degree a relationship exists between two or more quantifiable variables

the degree of the relationship is expressed as a coefficient of correlation.

the presence of a correlation does not indicate a cause-effect relationship primarily because of the possibility of multiple confounding factors

Slide 39

Pearson r...…a measure of correlation used for

data of interval or ratio scales

…assumes that the relationship between the variables being correlated is linear

11/04/2023

Slide 40

So

Descriptive statistics are used to summarize data from individual respondents, etc.– They help to make sense of large numbers of individual

responses, to communicate the essence of those responses to others

They focus on typical or average scores, the dispersion of scores over the available responses, and the shape of the response curve

11/04/2023

Slide 41

Chi square (χ2 ) test

11/04/2023

Slide 42

Used to:

Test for goodness of fit Test for independence of attributes Testing homogeneity Testing given population variance

11/04/2023

Slide 43

Introduction

The test we use to measure the differences between what is observed and what is expected according to an assumed hypothesis is called the chi-square test.

11/04/2023

Slide 44

Important The chi square test can only be used on

data that has the following characteristics:

The data must be in the form of frequencies

The frequency data must have a precise numerical value and

must be organised into categories or groups.

The total number of observations must be greater than 30.

The expected frequency in any one cell of the table must be

greater than 5.

11/04/2023

Slide 45

Formulaχ 2 = ∑ (O – E)2

E

χ2 = The value of chi squareO = The observed valueE = The expected value∑ (O – E)2 = all the values of (O – E) squared then added together

Conclusion

Compare χ2Calc. and Χ2

critical obtained from the table If χ2

Calc. Is larger than χ2Critical. then reject null hypothesis and

accept the alternative Here since χ 2

Calc. is much greater than χ 2Critical, we can easily

reject null hypothesisthat is ; there lies a relation between the gender and choice of selection.
