1 Topic Fit of a Distribution Goodness of fit tests examine the case of a sequence of independent observations each of which can have 1 of k possible categories. For example, each of us has one of 4 possible of blood types, O, A, B, and AB. The local blood bank has good information from a national database of the fraction of individuals having each blood type, O, A, B, and AB. The actual fraction p O,p A,p B, and p AB of these blood types in the community for a given blood bank may be different than what is seen in the national database. As a consequence, the local blood bank may choose to alter its distribution of blood supply to more accurately reflect local conditions. To place this assessment strategy in terms of formal hypothesis testing, let =( 1,..., k ) be postulated values of the probability P {individual is a member of i-th category} = i and let p =(p 1,...,p k ) denote the possible states of nature. Then, the parameter space is ={p =(p 1,...,p k ); p i 0 for all i =1,...,k, p i =1}. This parameter space has k 1 free parameters. Once these are chosen, the remaining parameter value is determined by the requirement that the sum of the p i equals 1. Thus, dim( ) = k 1. The hypothesis is h01gofh 0 : p i = i, for all i =1,...,k versus H 1 : p i 6= i, for some i =1,...,k. (1.1) The parameter space for the null hypothesis is a single point =( 1,..., k ). Thus, dim( 0 )=0. Consequently, the likelihood ratio test will have a chi-square test statistic with dim( ) dim( 0 )=k 1 degrees of freedom. The data x =(x 1,...,x n ) are the categories for each of the n observations. Let s use the likelihood ratio criterion to create a test for the distribution of human blood types in a given population. For the data x = {O, B, O, A, A, A, A, A, O, AB} for the blood types of tested individuals, then, in the case of independent observations, the likelihood is L(p x) =p O p B p O p A p A p A p A p A p O p AB = p 3 Op 5 Ap B p AB. 33

2 Notice that the likelihood has a factor of p i whenever an observation take on the value i. In other words, if we summarize the data using n i =#{observations from category i} to create n =(n 1,n,,n k ), a vector that records the number of observations in each category, then, the likelihood function L(p n) =p n1 1 pn k k. (1.) The likelihood ratio is the ratio of the maximum value of the likelihood under the null hypothesis and the maximum likelihood for any parameter value. In this case, the numerator is the likelihood evaluated at. (n) = L( n) L(ˆp n) = n1 1 n n k k = ˆp n1 1 ˆpn ˆpn k k 1 ˆp 1 n1 To find the maximum likelihood estimator ˆp, we, as usual, begin by taking the logarithm in (1.), ln L(p n) = n i ln p i. k ˆp k nk. (1.3) Because not every set of values for p i is admissible, we cannot just take derivatives, set them equal to 0 and solve. Indeed, we must find a maximum under the constraint s(p) = p i =1. The maximization problem is now stated in terms of the method of Lagrange multipliers. This method tells us that at the maximum likelihood estimator (ˆp 1,...,ˆp k ), the gradient of ln L(p n) is proportional to the gradient of the constraint s(p). To explain this briefly, recall that the gradient of a function is a vector that is perpendicular to a level set of that function. In this case, rˆp s(p) is perpendicular to the level set {p; s(p) =1}. Now imagine walking along the set of parameter values of p given by the constraint s(p) =1, keeping track of the values of the function ln L(p n). If the walk takes us from a value of this function below `0 to values above `0 then (See Figure 1.1.), the level surfaces {p; s(p) =1} intersect. Consequently, the gradients and {ln L(p n = `0} rˆp s(p) and rˆp ln L(p n) point in different directions on the intersection of these two surfaces. At a local maximum or minimum of the loglikelihood function, the level surfaces are tangent and the two gradients are parallel. In other words, the these two gradients vectors are related by a constant of proportionality,, known as the Lagrange multiplier. Consequently, at 1 ln L(ˆp n),..., r p ln L(ˆp n) = rˆp ln L(ˆp n) k n1,..., n k = (1,...,1) ˆp 1 ˆp 1 k

3 s(p) = 1 vel sets for the, values increasing moving ward Figure 1.1: Lagrange multipliers Level sets of the log-likelihood function.shown in dashed blue. The level set {s(p) =1} shown in black. The gradients for the log-likelihood function and the constraint are indicated by dashed blue and black arrows, respectively. At the maximum, these two arrows are parallel. Their ratio is called the Lagrange multiplier. If we view the blue dashed lines as elevation contour lines and the black line as a trail, crossing contour line indicates walking either up or down hill. When the trail reaches its highest elevation, the trail is tangent to a contour line and the gradient for the hill is perpendicular to the trail. Each of the components of the two vectors must be equal. In other words, n i ˆp i =, n i = ˆp i for all i =1,...,k. (1.4) Now sum this equality for all values of i and use the constraint s(p) =1to obtain Returning to (1.4), we have that n = n i = ˆp i = s(ˆp) =. n 1 ˆp i = n and ˆp i = n i n. This is the answer we would guess - the estimate for p i is the fraction of observations in category i. Thus, for the introductory example, ˆp O = 3 10, ˆp A = 5 10, ˆp B = 1 10, and ˆp O = Next, we substitute the maximum likelihood estimates ˆp i = n i /n into the likelihood ratio (1.3) to obtain (n) = L( n) L(ˆp n) = 1 n 1 /n n1 nk k = n k /n n1 nk n 1 n k. (1.5) Recall that we reject the null hypothesis if this ratio is too low, i.e, the maximum likelihood under the null hypothesis is sufficiently smaller than the maximum likelihood under the alternative hypothesis. Let s review the process. the random variables X 1,X,...,X n are independent, taking values in one of k categories each having distribution. In the example, we have 4 categories, namely the common blood types O, A, B, and AB. Next, we organize the data into N i =#{j; X j = i}, 35 n 1 n k

4 the number of observations in category i. Next, create the vector N =(N 1,...,N k ) to be the vector of observed number of occurrences for each category i. In the example we have the vector (3,5,1,1) for the number of occurrences of the 4 blood types. When the null hypothesis holds true, ln (N) has approximately a k 1 distribution. Using (1.5) we obtain the the likelihood ratio test statistic ln (N) = N i ln n i N i = N i ln N i n i The last equality uses the identity ln(1/x) = ln x for the logarithm of reciprocals. The test statistic ln n (n) is generally rewritten using the notation O i = n i for the number of observed occurrences of i and = n i for the number of expected occurrences of i as given by H 0. Then, we can write the test statistic as ln n (O) = O i ln O i (1.6) This is called the G test statistic. Thus, we can perform our inference on the hypothesis (??) by evaluating G. The p-value will be the probability that the a k 1 random variable takes a value greater than ln n(o) The traditional method for a test of goodness of fit, we use, instead of the G statistic, the chi-square statistic = ( O i ). (1.7) This was introduced between 1895 and 1900 by Karl Pearson and consequently has been in use for longer that the concept of likelihood ratio tests. We establish the relation between (1.6) and (1.7), through the following two exercises. Exercise 1.1. Define Show that i = O i = O i 1. i =0 and (1 i )=O i. Exercise 1.. Show the relationship between the G and statistics in (1.6) and (1.7) by applying the quadratic Taylor polynomial approximation for the natural logarithm, and keeping terms up to the square of i ln(1 i ) i 1 i To compute either the G or statistic, we begin by creating a table. i 1 k observed O 1 O O k expected E 1 E E k We show this procedure using a larger data set on blood types. 36

5 Example 1.3. The Red Cross recommends that a blood bank maintains 44% blood type O, 4% blood type A, 10% blood type B, 4% blood type AB. You suspect that the distribution of blood types in Tucson is not the same as the recommendation. In this case, the hypothesis is H 0 : p O =0.44,p A =0.4,p B =0.10,p AB =0.04 versus H 1 : at least one p i is unequal to the given values Based on 400 observations, we observe 8 for type O, 14 for type A, 40 for type B and 8 for type AB by computing 400 p i using the values in H 0. This gives the table type O A B AB observed expected Using this table, we can compute the value of either (1.6) and (1.7). The chisq.test command in R uses (1.7). The program computes the expected number of observations. > chisq.test(c(8,14,40,8),p=c(0.44,0.4,0.10,0.04)) Chi-squared test for given probabilities data: c(8, 14, 40, 8) X-squared = , df = 3, p-value = 8.977e-07 The number of degrees of freedom is 4 1=3. Note that the p-value is very low and so the distribution of blood types in Tucson is very unlikely to be the same as the national distribution. We can also perform the test using the G -statistic in (1.6): > O<-c(8,14,40,8) > E<-sum(O)*c(0.44,0.4,0.10,0.04) > Gstat<-*sum(O*log(O/E)) > Gstat [1] > 1-pchisq(Gstat,3) [1] e-07 One way to visualize the discrepancies from from the null hypothesis is to display them with a hanging chi-gram. This plots category i with a bar of height of the standardized residuals O i p Ei. (1.8) Note that these values can be either positive or negative. > resid<-(o-e)/sqrt(e) > barplot(resid, names.arg=c("o","a","b","ab"), xlab="chigram for blood donation data") Example 1.4. Is sudden infant death syndrome seasonal (SIDS)? Here we are hypothesizing that 1/4 of each of the occurrences of sudden infant death syndrome take place in the spring, summer, fall, and winter. Let p 1,p,p 3, and p 4 be the respective probabilities for these events. Then the hypothesis takes the form H 0 : p 1 = p = p 3 = p 4 = 1 4, versus H 1 : at least one p i is unequal to 1 4. To test this hypothesis, public health officials from King County, Washington, collect data on n = 3 cases, finding n 1 = 78, n = 71, n 3 = 87, n 4 = 86 37

6 O A B AB chigram for blood donation data Figure 1.: The heights of the bars for each category are the standardized scores (1.8). Thus, blood type O is overrepresented and types A and AB are underrepresented compare to the expectations under the null hypothesis.s for deaths in the spring, summer, fall, and winter, respectively. Thus, we find more occurrences of SIDS in the fall and winter. Is this difference statistical significant or are these difference better explained by chance fluctuations? We carry out the chi square test. In this case, each of the 4 categories is equally probable. Because this is the default value in R, we need not include this in the command. > chisq.test(c(78,71,87,86)) Chi-squared test for given probabilities data: c(78, 71, 87, 86) X-squared =.0994, df = 3, p-value = 0.55 This p-value is much to high to reject the null hypothesis. Example 1.5 (Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium). As we saw with Gregor Mendel s pea experiments, the two-allele Hardy-Weinberg principle states that after two generations of random mating the genotypic frequencies can be represented by a binomial distribution. So, if a population is segregating for two alleles A 1 and A at an autosomal locus with frequencies p 1 and p, then random mating would give a proportion p 11 = p 1 for the A 1 A 1 genotype, p 1 =p 1 p for the A 1 A genotype, and p = p for the A A genotype. (1.9) Then, with both genes in the homozygous genotype and half the genes in the heterozygous genotype, we find that p 1 = p 11 1 p 1 p = p 1 p 1. (1.10) Our parameter space ={(p 11,p 1,p ); p 11 p 1 p =1} is dimensional. 0, the parameter space for the null hypothesis, are those values p 1,p that satisfy (1.10). With the choice of p 1, the value p is determined because p 1 p =1. Thus, dim( 0 )=1. Consequently, the chi-square test statistic will have -1=1 degree of freedom. Another way to see this is the following. McDonald et al. (1996) examined variation at the CVJ5 locus in the American oyster, Crassostrea virginica. There were two alleles, L and S, and the genotype frequencies in Panacea, Florida were 14 LL, 1 LS, and 5 SS. So, ˆp 11 = 14 60, ˆp 1 = 1 60, ˆp =

7 chi square density x Figure 1.3: Plot of the chisquare density function with 3 degrees of freedom. The black vertical bar indicates the value of the test statistic in Example 1.3. The area 0.55 under the curve to the right of the vertical line is the p-value for this test. This is much to high to reject the null hypothesis. The red vertical lines show the critical values for a test with significance =0.05 (to the left) and =0.01 (to the right). Thus, the area under the curve to the right of these vertical lines is 0.05 and 0.01, respectively. These values can be found using qchisq(1-,3). We can also see that the test statistic value of in Example 1.3 has a very low p-value. So, the estimate of p 1 and p are So, the expected number of observations is ˆp 1 =ˆp 11 1 ˆp 1 = 49 10, ˆp =ˆp 1 ˆp 1 = E 11 = 60ˆp 1 = , E 1 = 60 ˆp 1 ˆp = , E = 60ˆp = The chi-square statistic The p-value = > 1-pchisq(4.569,1) [1] (14 10) 10 (1 9) 9 (5 1) 1 = = Thus, we have moderate evidence against the null hypothesis of a Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium. Many forces may be the cause of this - non-random mating, selection, or migration to name a few possibilities. Exercise 1.6. Perform the chi-squared test using the G statistic for the example above. 1. Contingency tables Contingency tables, also known as two-way tables or cross tabulations are a convenient way to display the frequency distribution from the observations of two categorical variables. For an r c contingency table, we consider two factors A and B for an experiment. This gives r categories A 1,...A r 39

8 for factor A and c categories B 1,...B c for factor B. Here, we write O ij to denote the number of occurrences for which an individual falls into both category A i and category B j. The results is then organized into a two-way table. B 1 B B c total A 1 O 11 O 1 O 1c O 1 A O 1 O O c O A r O r1 O r O rc O r total O 1 O O c n Example 1.7. Returning to the study of the smoking habits of 5375 high school children in Tucson in 1967, here is a two-way table summarizing some of the results. student student smokes does not smoke total parents smoke parent smokes parents smoke total For a contingency table, the null hypothesis we shall consider is that the factors A and B are independent. To set the parameters for this model, we define p ij = P {an individual is simultaneously a member of category A i and category B j }. Then, we have the parameter space ={p =(p ij, 1 apple i apple r, 1 apple j apple c); p ij 0 for all i, j =1, rx cx p ij =1}. j=1 Write the marginal distribution and p i = p j = cx p ij = P {an individual is a member of category A i } j=1 rx p ij = P {an individual is a member of category B j }. The null hypothesis of independence of the categories A and B can be written H 0 : p ij = p i p j, for all i, j versus H 1 : p ij 6= p i p j, for some i, j. Follow the procedure as before for the goodness of fit test to end with a G and its corresponding test statistic. The G statistic follows from the likelihood ratio test criterion. The statistics is a second order Taylor series approximation to G. rx cx O ij ln E rx cx ij (O ij j ). O ij j j=1 330 j=1

9 or The null hypothesis p ij = p i p j can be written in terms of observed and expected observations as j n = O i O j n n. j = O i O j n. The test statistic, under the null hypothesis, has a distribution. To determine the number of degrees of freedom, consider the following. Start with a contingency table with no entries but with the prescribed marginal values. B 1 B B c total A 1 O 1 A O.. A r O r total O 1 O O c n The number of degrees of freedom is the number of values that we can place in the contingency table before all the remaining values are determined. To begin, fill in the first row with values E 11,E 1,...,E 1,c 1. The final value E 1,c in this determined by the other values in the row and the constraint that the row sum must be O 1. Continue filling the rows, noting that the value in column c is determined by the constraint on the row sum. Finally, when the time comes to fill in the bottom row r, notice that all the values are determined by the constraint on the row sums O j. Thus, we can fill c 1 values in each of the r 1 rows before the remaining values are determined. Thus, the number of degrees of freedom is (r 1) (c 1), Example 1.8. Returning to the data set on smoking habits in Tucson, we find that the expected table is student student smokes does not smoke total parents smoke parent smokes parents smoke total For example, E 11 = O 1 O 1 n To compute the chi-square statistic = = ( ) ( ) 418. ( ) 53.9 ( ) ( ) ( ) = =

10 The number of degrees of freedom is (r 1) (c 1) = (3 1) ( 1) =. This can be seen by noting that one the first two entries in the student smokes column is filled, the rest are determined. Thus, the p-value > 1-pchisq(37.57,) [1] e-09 is very small and leads us to reject the null hypothesis. Thus, we conclude that children smoking habits are not independent of their parents smoking habits. An examination of the individual cells shows that the children of parents who do not smoke are less likely to smoke and children who have two parents that smoke are more likely to smoke. Under the null hypothesis, each cell has a mean approximately 1 and so values much greater than 1 show contribution that leads to the rejection of H 0. R does the computation for us using the chisq.test command > smoking<-matrix(c(400,416,188,1380,183,1168),nrow=3) > smoking [,1] [,] [1,] [,] [3,] > chisq.test(smoking) Pearson s Chi-squared test data: smoking X-squared = , df =, p-value = 6.959e-09 We can look at the residuals (O ij j )/ p j for the entries in the test as follows. > smokingtest<-chisq.test(smoking) > residuals(smokingtest) [,1] [,] [1,] [,] [3,] Notice that if we square these values, we obtain the entries found in computing the test statistic. > residuals(smokingtest)ˆ [,1] [,] [1,] [,] [3,] Exercise 1.9. Make three horizontally placed chigrams that summarize the residuals for this above. test in the example Exercise 1.10 (two-by-two tables). Here is the contingency table can be thought of as two sets of Bernoulli trials as shown. group 1 group total successes x 1 x x 1 x failures n 1 x 1 n x (n 1 n ) (x 1 x ) total n 1 n n 1 n Show that the chi-square test is equivalent to the two-sided two sample proportion test. 33

11 1.3 Applicability and Alternatives to Chi-squared Tests The chi-square test uses the central limit theorem and so is based on the ability to use a normal approximation. One criterion, the Cochran conditions requires no cell has count zero, and more than 80% of the cells have counts at least 5. If this does not hold, then Fisher s exact test uses the hypergeometric distribution (or its generalization) directly rather than normal approximation. For example, for the table, B 1 B total A 1 O 11 O 1 O 1 A O 1 O O total O 1 O n The idea behind Fisher s exact test is to begin with an empty table: B 1 B total A 1 O 1 A O total O 1 O n and a null hypothesis that uses equally likely outcomes to fill in the table. We will use as an analogy the model of mark and recapture. Normally the goal is to find n, the total population. In this case, we assume that this population size is known and will consider the case that the individuals in the two captures are independent. This is assumed in the mark and recapture protocol. Here we test this independence. In this regard, A 1 - an individual in the first capture and thus tagged. A - an individual not in the first capture and thus not tagged. B 1 - an individual in the second capture. B - an individual not in the second capture Then, from the point of view of the A classification: We have O 1 from a population n with the A 1 classification (tagged individuals). This can be accomplished in n n! = O 1!O! ways. The remaining O = n values for the B classification O 1 O 1 have the A classification (untagged individuals). Next, we fill in the From the O 1 belonging to category B 1 (individuals in the second capture), O 11 also belong to A 1 (have a tag). This outcome can be accomplished in O 1 = O 1! O 11 O 11!O 1! ways. From the O belonging to category B (individuals not in the second capture), O 1 also belong to A 1 (have a tag). This outcome can be accomplished in O = O! O 1!O! ways. O 1 333

12 Under the null hypothesis that every individual can be placed in any group, provided we have the given marginal information. In this case, the probability of the table above has the formula from the hypergeometric distribution O 1 O O 11 O 1 n = O 1!/(O 11!O 1!) O!/(O 1!O!) = O 1!O!O 1!O! n!/(o O 1 1!O!) O 11!O 1!O 1!O!n!. (1.11) Notice that the formula is symmetric in the column and row variables. Thus, if we had derived the hypergeometric formula from the point of view of the B classification we would have obtained exactly the same formula (1.11). To complete the exact test, we rely on statistical software to do the following: compute the hypergeometric probabilities over all possible choices for entries in the cells that result in the given marginal values, and rank these probabilities from most likely to least likely. Find the ranking of the actual data. For a one-sided test of too rare, the p-value is the sum of probabilities of the ranking lower than that of the data. A similar procedure applies to provide the Fisher exact test for r c tables. Example As a test of the assumptions for mark and recapture. We examine a small population of 10 fish. The assumption are that each group of fish are equally likely to be capture in the first and second capture and that the two captures are independent. This could be violated, for example, if the tagged fish are not uniformly dispersed in the pond. Twenty-five are tagged and returned to the pond. For the second capture of 30, seven are tagged. With this information, given in red in the table below, we can complete the remaining entries. in nd capture not in nd capture total in 1st capture not in 1st capture total Fisher s exact test show a much too high p-value to reject the null hypothesis. > fish<-matrix(c(7,3,18,7),ncol=) > fisher.test(fish) Fisher s Exact Test for Count Data data: fish p-value = alternative hypothesis: true odds ratio is not equal to 1 95 percent confidence interval: sample estimates: odds ratio Exercise 1.1. Perform the test on the data set above and report the findings. Example We now return to a table on hemoglobin genotypes on two Indonesian islands. Recall that heterozygotes are protected against malaria. 334

Here are both the chi-square test and the Fisher exact test. > genotype<-matrix(c(18,119,6,78,0,4),nrow=) > genotype [,1] [,] [,3] [1,] [,] > chisq.test(genotype) Pearson s Chi-squared test data: genotype X-squared = , df =, p-value = 1.38e-1 Warning message: In chisq.test(genotype) : Chi-squared approximation may be incorrect and > fisher.test(genotype) Fisher s Exact Test for Count Data data: genotype p-value = 3.907e-15 alternative hypothesis: two.sided Note that R cautions against the use of the chi-square test with these data. 1.4 Answer to Selected Exercise 1.1. For the first identity, using i =(O i )/. i = O i = (O i )=n n =0 and for the second Ei (1 i )= O i = O i = O i. 1..
