1 STATISTICAL METHODS FOR BUSINESS UNIT 7: INFERENTIAL TOOLS. DISTRIBUTIONS ASSOCIATED WITH SAMPLING Distributios associated with the samplig process Iferetial processes ad relevat distributios.
2 UNIT 7. GOALS To describe the chisquare ad Studet s t distributios. To calculate probabilities ad percetiles (quatiles). To apply the mai pivotal statistics used i iferetial processes o the mea, the proportio ad the variace of a populatio.
3 STATISTICAL METHODS FOR BUSINESS UNIT 7: INFERENTIAL TOOLS. DISTRIBUTIONS ASSOCIATED WITH SAMPLING Distributios associated with the samplig process.
4 Probability models associated with samplig Normal distribució Chisquared distributio Studet's t distributio N ( μ, σ ) χ 2 t
5 Chisquared distributio X 1,..., X INDEPENDIENT RVs with distributio N(0,1): Z X 2 χ 2 i i 1 Z has a chisquared distributio with degrees of freedom
6 Degrees of freedom Expressio RANDOM VARIABLES CONSTRAINTS Degrees of freedom i=1 X i 2 X 1, X 2,..., X Noe ( X i X ) 2 X 1, X 2,..., X i=1 or X 1 X, X 2 X,..., X X i= 1 X i oe = X ( X i X )=0 i=11 The umber of degrees of freedom i a expressio may be iterpreted as the umber of values that may be arbitrarily chose.
7 Chisquared distributio Reproductivity Give two idepedet RVs X 2 Y 2 m It holds: 2 m X Y The chisquared model is REPRODUCTIVE with respect to the umber of degrees of freedom.
8 Fisher s Theorem Give a simple radom sample (X 1,..., X ) from a N( ) populatio, it holds: The distributio of the radom variable is chisquared with 1 degrees of freedom. X The sample mea ad the sample variace S 2 are idepedet radom variables. ( 1) S 2 σ 2 S 2 = ( X i X ) 2 i=1 1 SAMPLE VARIANCE

12 Pivotal statistics The estimator T summarizes the iformatio that the sample cotais o the ukow parameter. The pivot is obtaied by stadardizig the estimator. A pivot should have a kow probability distributio, ot depedig o ukow parameters.
