Choosing which statistical test to use - statistics help

Оценок: 3902 | Просмотров: 644828
Seven different statistical tests and a process by which you can decide which to use. The tests are: Test for a mean, test for a proportion, difference of proportions, difference of two means - independent samples, difference of two means - paired, chi-squared test for independence and regression. This video draws together videos about Helen, her brother, Luke and the choconutties.

so maybe someone can help me with this I need to do a study where I will be using two surveys on the same group of people both are likert scales: Big five inventory (personality traits) the second on the multifactor leadership questionnaire (they can score either high or low in transformational leadership. What statistical tests should I be using. BTW my degree is in psychology not SPSS lol

Thank you Zoe. I'm sure you are not really an idiot. Clearly you were smart enough to find our videos. It is a pity lots of people make statistics more complicated than it needs to be. Please share our videos with your friends.

mam can you please leave a link of video for ANOVA and other related tests? i want to note down details about these tests too, it will be of great favour
Dr Nic's Maths and Stats (25 дней назад)
Sorry - I haven't done a video on ANOVA. ANOVA is pretty much "the test between two means" but with more than two groups.

orhan tokur (4 месяца назад)
I don't understand the "example 6". Why it is "regression analysis" instead of "difference of two means (paired) ? Isn't it correct to use second one?
orhan tokur (3 месяца назад)
Thank you for your kind answer, i believe i got it !
Dr Nic's Maths and Stats (3 месяца назад)
The two measures are the temperature and the sales of choconutties. It does not make any sense to compare the mean temperature in degrees and the mean sales in packets of choconutties over the days. We are looking at a relationship, so we use regression. Please explain your reasoning if you are still confused.

Why is the answer to Q#3 "paired" and not "independent" .... I got that wrong :( Otherwise u saved my statistical life .. excellent vid
suke (4 месяца назад)
Ohhhh ok I see the logic behind the decision. "Paired" makes perfect sense now. Thanks for the prompt response :)
Dr Nic's Maths and Stats (4 месяца назад)
You could do it as independent samples, but you would be wasting information.Because for each person we have two pieces of information - the time taken to eat the choconutty and the time taken to eat the nuttabar we can control better for variation between people. There is only one sample - the 36 people.

what should i use if im trying to identify if gentrification causes crime? i have a gentrified and a non gentrified area and have crime statistics for both area from 2015-18 URGENT thanks!
Dr Nic's Maths and Stats (4 месяца назад)
You cannot tell if gentrification causes crime - you can only tell if there is a correlation between gentrification and crime. See the video Important statistical concepts, that explains about causation and relationship. https://youtu.be/FG7xnWmZlPE It your have just two areas and two time series, you are probably best to use a time series analysis. We have videos about time series in our statistics course.

Good day, I would just like to ask what type of Statistical test would be most appropriate for comparing 3 different independent variables. Im doing a MFC research, comparing the voltage and amperage over time of the three microbes (independent V.) to determine which has the highest power generation among the three. Thank you
Dr Nic's Maths and Stats (1 год назад)
Hi Nayre I'm afraid you would need to give me more info than this. MFC? If you have three groups - the three microbes, as the independent vble, and power generation is interval/ratio, then it looks as if you are looking at ANOVA.

DayGloBetty (1 год назад)
This is a great video and super helpful, thank you, I've subscribed. I'm still confused about what test I need to use though, could you help me? I'll write the problem out in terms of Helen and the chocco nutties: Helen wants to know if the number of times someone has eaten a chocco nutty changes their opinion of chocco nutties. She has one group of 12 people and gives each person 22 chocco nutties. After each bar a person eats she asks them if they liked or disliked the bar, and wants to compare if there's a difference between the percentage of the group who enjoyed their first chocco nutty bar vs. their second, their third, their fourth and so on. I get that the liking or disliking of the bar is nominal, but does the fact that it's been changed to the percentage of people who said they liked it change that? Also, what kind of data would the number of chocco nutties the subjects have eaten thus far be catagorised as? I'm definitely going to watch your other videos to see if they can help me find the answer but if you, or someone lovely in the comments, knows what test I should do I would super appreciate that! xoxo
DayGloBetty (1 год назад)
Hey, that's really helpful, thank you so much. I have got it plotted out as a graph already but it's good to know that they are both interval data - I'll do some searching around and see if I can figure out what sort of test I should do. Thanks again.
Dr Nic's Maths and Stats (1 год назад)
I'm not sure of a test, but I think a graph would be a good start. The percentage that like the bar at each stage is interval data. The number of choconutties eaten (which is really also a stage) would also be interval data. However you only have one observation at each stage, so there are only 12 data points.

I hope someone can help me with this. I cant understand what my lecturer had been teaching and I really need help. 30 women hv anemia in pregnancy & 15 of them hv history of malaria. 90 hv normal hb lvl pregnancy & 20 of them hv history of malaria. what is the research hypothesis and null hypothesis? suggest a statistical test for testing the null hypothesis. is this considered as two sample or one sample?
Dr Nic's Maths and Stats (1 год назад)
You can use a chi-sq test to do a difference of two proportions, and it gives the same result.
Aafi (1 год назад)
the answer given was chi square test, so i thought it was asking if anemia in pregnancy and malaria are independent.
Dr Nic's Maths and Stats (1 год назад)
Two samples, difference of two proportions.

Madjid Bati (1 год назад)
What statistics can be use if i want to measure relation between integrity and performance of local parliament members, thank you
Dr Nic's Maths and Stats (1 год назад)
You need to read up about developing indices. There is a whole area of work behind this. Or you can use each measure individually, but it depends on how they are measured. I suspect your measures are ordinal data. In some fields it is acceptable to combine ordinal data to create an index of, for instance, accountability. The task you are talking about is not a small one. Correlation measures the linear relationship between two measures. You use rank correlation if your measures do not behave in such a way that Pearson correlation is valid.
Madjid Bati (1 год назад)
thank you for your kind respond. For instance integrity has four elements, one of the element is accountability, and accountability has six indicators, namely: 1. Transparency 2. Access to information 3. Consistency 4. Social responsibility 5. Clear record keeping 6. Openness to stakeholders Based on these indicator, how can I develop indices? and why I would use the correlation - probably Spearman rank correlation rather than Pearson. thank you for your wise respond...
Dr Nic's Maths and Stats (1 год назад)
It depends on what your measures are. First you may need to develop indices to measure integrity and performance. This looks like a difficult project. If you already have measures, then you may be able to use correlation - probably Spearman rank correlation rather than Pearson.

Hi, i have five tables (time X temp.) each table has different time (the first one from 0 to 15 min, the second from one to 25 min the third one from 0 to 18 min and so on). Each table starts with the same temp. Value (25°C) and end at the same new temp value (100°C). My question is, how can I calculate the Standard deviations and how can get a real average (time vs. temp) data and graph.

Irum S (1 год назад)
Hi! I would request insights from the group regarding my results that involves Andrew Hayes mediation (model 4) and moderation (model1). X predictor (marital disaffection), Y outcome (Facebook intrusion) and M as a mediator (commitment). I have found that path a (Effect of X on M) is significant, Path B (effect of M on Y is significant), and Path C (original effect of X on Y is significant). However, the 4th requirement of the Mediation that C' is also Significant (effect of X on Y, SHOULD have be reduced or eliminated when M is introduced ). Can I report it as partial mediation ? Also with the same variables I have found the moderating (interaction) effect of commitment at all three levels (low medium and high commitment levels). Should I use another model that takes into account the mediation and moderation of the same variable? or just individually report both models in the results ? Thank you for your time and advice.

Hi... thanks a million for making the basics so clear.. choosing a test also has got to do with which kind of data is our dependent variable. & the number of variables.. It would really very helpful if you could share info on that. for eg, I havent understood when would we use path analysis & when logistic regression.. it would be of immense help if you could suggest in similar lines

Excellent presentation on Youtube we would like to link to this. Also It would be wonderful if you could tell me about other youtube presentation you have on line, and other really good youtube presentation you know.. I am professor emeritus at the University of pittsburgh and former director of a WHO Collaborating Centre. I am writing you as I am collaborating with the Library of Alexandria in Egypt to build research capacity in Arabic and African countries to attack the deadly problem of "stataphobia" (my word). This is the fear of statistics and not having expert advice. Africa only publishes 3% of the world's literature, a primary reason for this the lack of statistical skills (stataphobia). We have created the research methods library of alexandria to boost research capacity. This is the largest virtual research methods library. Also we are collecting statistics books from 100 of the world's leading statistics experts. I am writing you for a simple reason. When I taught statistics there always was ~15% of the students who just did not get it. I thought it would be wonderful to have you come in to teach these kids from your perspective, or a professor from our statistics program. This obviously is not possible, but with youtube it is. I am looking to find the best lectures on the web so that if a student cannot understand "histogram", they can learn from you. I am writing to people have the best lectures on the web to link with them, and to get their advice about other grand lectures like yours to include. http://ssc.bibalex.org/helpdesk/introduction.jsf THank you very much for an outstanding lecture, and we hope to collaborate with you to improve research productivity in Arabic and African countries. Please write to me at ronaldlaporte@gmail.com Sincerely Ronald E. LaPorte, Ph.D. Professor Emeritus Ismail Serageldin, Ph.D. Director of the Library of alexandria

Hello, thank you for this video, I found it very helpful. I have one question: in which category does the T-Test fit?
Dr Nic's Maths and Stats (2 года назад)
+Alberto Martinico Hi. It depends what the t-test is doing. You can use a t statistic to test the value of a mean, and you can also use a t statistic to test for the difference of two means, paired and independent samples. And you also use a t statistics for individual slope values in a regression. This is why I don't call any of them a t-test! If your instructor or textbook use that terminology, they probably mean testing the value of a mean.
figsandcoffee (2 года назад)
very helpful, but I also wish you said what tests to use.
Dr Nic's Maths and Stats (2 года назад)

Dr Nic's Maths and Stats (2 года назад)
Maybe next time. ANOVA is used for more than two groups so isn't covered here. The difference of two proportions is done several different ways. I'm trying to avoid too much of a cookbook approach so that students know what they are testing, not just the statistic they use. Thanks for your input.
figsandcoffee (2 года назад)
exactly that - the t-test or z-test or ANOVA arent mentioned in the video.  It would be helpful to know upfront where they fit in, since for most students thats what they are looking at and don't understand.  thanks for the extra description.
Dr Nic's Maths and Stats (2 года назад)
+figsandcoffee I don't really understand what you mean. A test for a mean is usually a t-test for the value of a mean. A difference of two means is usually a t-test for the difference of two means. You can see more about those on my other videos. A regression is a regression! You do t-tests and an F-test as part of a regression. Can you be more specific about which test you want to know about.

Hi. My topic is on A Study of Budget Slack and the Influence of Budget Participation on Budget Slack. My research objectives are to study the relationship between budget participation, procedural fairness, distributive fairness, trust, goal commitment and manager's propensity to create slack, to investigate the relationship between budget participation on budget slack, to study the impacts of budgetary slack to companies' managerial performance and to determine the effectiveness of budget participation on managerial performance. I am using questionnaire of 7-point Likert Scale from 1- Strongly disagree to 7- Strongly agree for data collection. For budget participation, my questionnaire has 6 questions of Likert Scale type. Should I use mean or median to combine the 6 questions of budget participation into one item of one value for budget participation in SPSS? Budget participation is the independent variable. The mediating variables are procedural fairness, distributive fairness, trust, goal commitment. The dependent variable is budget slack. I would like to test the reliability of the data using Cronbach alpha. I would like to use Pearson correlation to study the relationship of budget participation, procedural fairness, distributive fairness, trust, goal commitment towards budget slack. I would like to use multiple regression for hypothesis testing. And I would like to use factor analysis to test the 6 factors which are budget participation, procedural fairness, distributive fairness, trust, goal commitment and manager's propensity to create slack. My sample size is 154 respondents. The target population is on managers from small and medium companies (SMEs). Am I on the right track for my statistical tests? Any suitable recommendations of statistical tests for my research? Thanks. T

All is great and helpful, thanks! But for us, international students - I wish you described the conditions of the problems a bit slower... But when you eliminate different tests' possibilities, the speed is perfect, easy to follow.

+natalia kureneva I'm glad you find them helpful. One of the great things about YouTube is you can always pause and go back over a bit you didn't get. - Or read the captions.

what is the difference between two samples i.e. men and women and one sample, two measures i.e. men and women's opinions on chocolate?
Dr Nic's Maths and Stats (2 года назад)
+Ellie Gunner Hi. The second example you give isn't feasible. Each observation is one person who is either male or female. One sample two measures means that both the measures are taken on the same person or entity. You could have, for example, a married couple is the entity, and the two measures are the woman's opinion and the man's opinion. But those are paired and thus different from taking independent samples of men and women. Two samples can be different sizes, whereas for one sample, two measures the columns must be equal length.

Great Illustration! You nailed it. Would be great to have official names of the tests as listed in the text books.

I agree. Thanks a lot for you great effort!
Dr Nic's Maths and Stats (2 года назад)
+Ahmad Kaako That is an interesting idea - but the problem is that text books use different names for tests.

Agree Dr Michael Moroney. I am a student who has just started learning statistics and I found this video helpful to begin with. Can I request you any books related to this topic.

Hi pls i need help!

Although i have been using the rank order to i just dont know how to continue. Please help am also to find the difference in opinion of both parties as my hypothesis...
O'seun Iyadi (3 года назад)
is there anywhere i could get a tutorial on that?
Dr Nic's Maths and Stats (3 года назад)
+SEUN IYADI It sounds as if you need a Wilcoxon Rank sum test, which is like difference of two means, independent samples, but uses ranks rather than values.
