Nominal

In regards to a measurement scale, a data set for residential houses defining pool or no pool would be:

Mean and Median

Which of the following is a measurement of the central therom?

Advertisement

Mean

(ALL)

Sampling is more cost effective

Sampling is more timely

Sampling is more practical

Sampling is more cost effective

Sampling is more timely

Sampling is more practical

When attempting to accurately depict group variable as a whole, take small subsets to make statistical inferences rather than try to capture the entirety of the observable data. WHY?

Define the objective of the survey

For the scope of this course, when creating a survey the first thing one should do is?

The type of sampling in which elements within the population are divided into groups and a randomly selected sample are taken from those groups to analyze?

Sampling

In general one can expect to see more ____ bias in subjects in which individuals have strong opinions? (religion, politics, sports)

Mutually Exclusive

Events are ____ _____ if they cannot happen at the same time. (Either/or)

Example of a data vendor?

Qualitative

Class rank (freshmen, soph, ect) coded as 1-2-3-4 is a _____ variable

Ordinal

The measurement scale for the variable class rank (Quant)

taking the 115th person on every 12th page of the phone book is an example of what sampling?

Sample where everyone in the pop. is in the sampling frame and has the same prob. of being selected?

Standard Deviation

the difference between xbar and u when sampling is done corretly is referred to as?

Zscore

A measure or count of deviations from the mean of a group data

The mean

What central location measurement is more affected by deviation

Standard Deviation

uses the same base units as the original data

S.D. uses the same base units, we take the square root of variance to compute deviation.

Why would we prefer using Standard deviation as a measurement over variance?

Collectively Exhaustive

constitute the entire range of possibilities

Random Variable

Is conceptual metric that has no single, fixed value

Continuous

Suppose you are applying to a busa. school post undergrad, and the AVG GMAT score range of most applicants is 550-650. This range is what kind of variable?

Discrete

Say you take the GMAT and you know you made in between 550-650. What type of variable is your raw score.

Each observation is dependent upon previous observations

Which of the following is a qualification for a distribution to be considered binomial?

Poisson Distribution

Time sensitive with only two possible outcomes

0 and 1

The standard normal distribution has a mean of __ and a standard deviation of ___ .

Normal distribution

Continuous

Asymptotic to the axis

Asymptotic to the axis

Smaller

Standard deviation is always ___ as the sample size increases

Assume Normal Distribution

The central limit theorem allows us to ____ given an adequate SRS sample

Zscore

number of deviations some value is above or below the mean

Binomial Dist.

discrete with only 2 possible outcomes per trial

Decreases

What happens to the SE if n is increased?

Poisson Distribution

x is discrete random variable

Random variable

it takes on different numerical value based on chance

Binomial Distribution

Only two outcomes are possible

T distribution

probability distribution that is used to estimate population parameters when the sample size is small and/or when the population variance is not known

Degrees of freedom

refer to the number of independent observations or events in a set of data as

Number of Independent observations

Subtracting one from the sample size (n-1)

T Distribution

What dist. always has a mean of 0

T Test: Margin of Error

our appropriate T score multiplied by our standard error

.05: 1-.95=.05

I take a SRS of 49 and find that the sample mean is 350 and sample deviation is 45. I want to be 95% that the mean are within the certain value. What is Alpha?

48: 49-1=48

I take a SRS of 49 and find that the mean is 350, deviation is 45. how many independent observations do we have?

Standard Error for proportions

What is equal to the square root of (P*(1-P)?N)

Standard Error Decreases

in both proportions and mans for a sample statistic, what happens to our standard error is the number of observations increases

False

a T value at alpha=.05 is always the same (TorF)

-2.5

At a given level of Alpha, we have a t value of (t.05=2.5), what then is (t.95) for the same number of independent observations
