1 Case Study Normal ad t Distributios Bret Halo ad Bret Larget Departmet of Statistics Uiversity of Wiscosi Madiso October 11 13, 2011 Case Study Body temperature varies withi idividuals over time (it ca be higher whe oe is ill with a fever, or durig or after physical exertio). However, if we measure the body temperature of a sigle healthy perso whe at rest, these measuremets vary little from day to day, ad we ca associate with each perso a idividual restig body temperture. There is, however, variatio amog idividuals of restig body temperture. A sample of = 130 idividuals had a average restig body temperature of degrees Fahreheit ad a stadard deviatio of 0.73 degrees Fahreheit. The ext slide shows a estimated desity plot from this sample. Normal 1 / 33 Normal Case Study Body Temperature 2 / 33 Desity Plot Normal Distributios Desity The estimated desity has these features: it is bellshaped; it is early symmetric. May (but ot all) biological variables have similar shapes. Oe reaso is a geeralized the cetral limit theorem: radom variables that are formed by addig may radom effects will be approximately ormally distributed. Importat for iferece, eve whe uderlyig distributios are ot ormal, the samplig distributio of the sample mea is approximately ormal Restig Body Temperature (F) Normal Case Study Body Temperature 3 / 33 Normal Case Study Body Temperature 4 / 33

Samplig Distributio, = Desity Desity x x Normal Case Study Body Temperature 5 / 33 Normal Case Study Body Temperature 6 / 33 Case Study: Questios The Big Picture Case Study How ca we use the sample data to estimate with cofidece the mea restig body temperture i a populatio? How would we test the ull hypothesis that the mea restig body temperture i the populatio is, i fact, equal to the wellkow 98.6 degrees Fahreheit? How robust are the methods of iferece to oormality i the uderlyig populatio? How large of a sample is eeded to esure that a cofidece iterval is o larger tha some specified amout? May iferece problems with a sigle quatitative, cotiuous variable may be modeled as a large populatio (bucket) of idividual umbers with a mea µ ad stadard deviatio σ. A radom sample of size has a sample mea x ad sample stadard deviatio s. Iferece about µ based o sample data assumes that the samplig distributio of x is approximately ormal with E( x) = µ ad SD( x) = σ/. To prepare to uderstad iferece methods for sigle samples of quatitative data, we eed to uderstad: the ormal ad related distributios; the samplig distributio of x.

3 Cotiuous Distributios A cotiuous radom variable has possible values over a cotiuum. The total probability of oe is ot i discrete chuks at specific locatios, but rather is groud up like a very fie dust ad sprikled o the umber lie. We caot represet the distributio with a table of possible values ad the probability of each. Istead, we represet the distributio with a probability desity fuctio which measures the thickess of the probability dust. Probability is measured over itervals as the area uder the curve. A legal probability desity f : is ever egative (f (x) 0 for < x < ). has a total area uder the curve of oe ( f (x)dx = 1). The Stadard Normal Desity The stadard ormal desity is a symmetric, bellshaped probability desity with equatio: φ(z) = 1 e z2 2, ( < z < ) 2π Desity Possible Values Normal Cotiuous Radom Variables Desity 9 / 33 Normal Stadard Normal Distributio Desity 10 / 33 Momets Bechmarks The mea of the stadard ormal distributio is µ = 0. This poit is the ceter of the desity ad the poit where the desity is highest. The stadard deviatio of the stadard ormal distributio is σ = 1. Notice that the poits 1 ad 1, which are respectively oe stadard deviatio below ad above the mea, are at poits of iflectio of the ormal curve. (This is useful for roughly estimatig the stadard deviatio from a plotted desity or histogram.) The area betwee 1 ad 1 uder a stadard ormal curve is approximately 68%. The area betwee 2 ad 2 uder a stadard ormal curve is approximately 95%. More precisely, the area betwee 1.96 ad = , which is why we have used 1.96 for 95% cofidece itervals for proportios.

4 Stadard Normal Desity Geeral Areas Stadard Normal Desity Desity Area withi 1 = 0.68 Area withi 2 = 0.95 Area withi 3 = There is o formula to calculate geeral areas uder the stadard ormal curve. (The itegral of the desity has o closed form solutio.) We prefer to use R to fid probabilities. You also eed to lear to use ormal tables for exams Possible Values Normal Stadard Normal Distributio Probability Calculatios 13 / 33 Normal Stadard Normal Distributio Probability Calculatios 14 / 33 R The fuctio porm() calculates probabilities uder the stadard ormal curve by fidig the area to the left. For example, the area to the left of 1.57 is > porm(1.57) [1] ad the area to the right of 2.12 is > 1  porm(2.12) [1] Normal Stadard Normal Distributio Probability Calculatios 15 / 33 Tables The table o pages displays right tail probabilities for z = 0 to z = A poit o the axis rouded to two decimal places a.bc correspods to a row for a.b ad a colum for c. The umber i the table for this row ad colum is the area to the right. Symmetry of the ormal curve ad the fact that the total area is oe are eeded. The area to the left of 1.57 is the area to the right of 1.57 which is i the table. The area to the right of 2.12 is Whe usig the table, it is best to draw a rough sketch of the curve ad shade i the desired area. This practice allows oe to approximate the correct probability ad catch simple errors. Fid the area betwee z = 1.64 ad z = 2.55 o the board. Normal Stadard Normal Distributio Probability Calculatios 16 / 33
5 R Tables The fuctio qorm() is the iverse of porm() ad fids a quatile, or locatio where a give area is to the right. For example, the 0.9 quatile of the stadard ormal curve is > qorm(0.9) [1] ad the umber z so that the area betwee z ad z is 0.99 is > qorm(0.995) [1] sice the area to the left of z ad to the right of z must each be (1 0.99)/2 = ad = Draw a sketch! Fidig quatiles from the ormal table almost always requires some roud off error. To fid the umber z so that the area betwee z ad z is 0.99 requires fidig the probability i the middle of the table. We see z = 2.57 has a right tail area of ad z = 2.58 has a right ail area of , so the value of z we seek is betwee 2.57 ad For exam purposes, it is okay to pick the closest, here Use the table to fid the 0.03 quatile as accurately as possible.

6 All Normal Curves Have the Same Shape Normal Tail Probability All ormal curves have the same shape, ad are simply rescaled versios of the stadard ormal desity. Cosequetly, every area uder a geeral ormal curve correspods to a area uder the stadard ormal curve. The key stadardizatio formula is Solvig for x yields z = x µ σ x = µ + zσ which says algebraically that x is z stadard deviatios above the mea. Example If X N(100, 2), fid P(X > 97.5). Solutio: P(X > 97.5) = ( X 100 P > 2 = P(Z > 1.25) = 1 P(Z > 1.25) = ) Normal Geeral Norma Distributio Probability Calculatios 21 / 33 Normal Geeral Norma Distributio Probability Calculatios 22 / 33 Normal Quatiles Example If X N(100, 2), fid the cutoff values for the middle 70% of the distributio. Solutio: The cutoff poits will be the 0.15 ad 0.85 quatiles. From the table, 1.03 < z < 1.04 ad z = 1.04 is closest. Thus, the cutoff poits are the mea plus or mius 1.04 stadard deviatios (2) = 97.92, (2) = I R, a sigle call to qorm() fids these cutoffs. > qorm(c(0.15, 0.85), 100, 2) [1] Case Study Example I a populatio, suppose that: the mea restig body temperature is degrees Fahreheit; the stadard deviatio is 0.73 degrees Fahreheit; restig body temperatures are ormally distributed. Let X be the restig body temperature of a radomly chose idividual. Fid: 1 P(X < 98), the proportio of idividuals with temperature less tha P(98 < X < 100), the proportio of idividuals with temperature betwee 98 ad The 0.90 quatile of the distributio. 4 The cutoff values for the middle 50% of the distributio.

Now that the ormal distributio has bee itroduced, we ca better motivate the χ 2 distributio.

The table o pages has the same iformatio for limited umbers of quatiles for each χ 2 distributio with 100 or fewer degrees of freedom. Ulike the ormal distributios where all ormal curves are just rescaligs of the stadard ormal curve, each χ 2 distributio is differet. t Distributio Defiitio If Z is a stadard ormal radom variable ad if X 2 is a χ 2 radom variable with k degrees of freedom, the T = Z X 2 /k has a t distributio with k degrees of freedom. t desities are symmetric, bellshaped, ad cetered at 0 just like the stadard ormal desity, but are more spread out (higher variace). As the degrees of freedom icreases, the t distributios coverge to the stadard ormal. t distributios will be useful for statistical iferece for oe or more populatios of quatitative variables.
