Data can come from many sources:Producing DataExploratory Data AnalysisInferenceSlide 5Exploratory Data Analysis (details are cominglater)11measurements, surveys, experiments,observational studies, etc. Weaknesses in data production account formost erroneous conclusions in statisticalstudies, therefore the production of good datarequires careful planning.Inference (details are coming later) Once we have our data, we want to knowwhat might be “in there”. Data have a story totell, and our goal is to uncover that story. The statistical process called ExploratoryData Analysis (EDA) employs a variety oftechniques to maximize insight into a data set.It includes some graphical and non-graphicaltechniques to analyze data. When you taste a spoonful of your coffeeand conclude that it needs more sugar,that's an inference. If there's a lot of sugar sitting on thebottom because you were too sleepy tostir it, coffee from the surface won't berepresentative, and you'll end up with anincorrect inference (and a coffee with toomuch sugar). But if you stir your coffeethoroughly before you taste, your spoonfulof data can tell you about the whole cup ofcoffee.Slide 6

Population ExamplesSlide 7 Data: observations (such as measurements, genders, survey responses)Slide 8 All runners in the 2009 L.A. Marathonthat have been collected. All kindergarten kids at a school district Population: the complete collection of all elements (scores, people, All 16 oz. bottled water manufactured by Evianmeasurements, and so on) to be studied. All Milano cookies made by Pepperidge Farm Census: the collection of data from every member of the population. All rats in the biology lab at CSUN Sample: a sub-collection of elements drawn from a population. All ships arriving to the Long Beach port at a particular day All purebred German Shepherd dogs in Los Angeles county All tires made by Good Year All lattes made at the Starbucks closest to your home in a month All rainy days in Los AngelesCopyright 2004 Pearson Education, Inc.Slide 9Slide 10OK, we have a population. Then what?Or We want to learn something about the population.Let’s say our population of interest is ALL runners in the2009 L.A. Marathon.Let’s say our population of interest is ALL kindergartenkids at a school district.We might be interested in the average vocabulary score of ALL kindergarten kids at theschool the proportion of ALL kindergarten kids who live in a singleparent home the mean height of ALL kindergarten kids at the school the percent of ALL kindergarten kids who need speechtherapyWe might be interested in the average age of ALL runners the proportion of ALL runners who completed the marathonunder three hours the percent of female runners who completed the marathon the proportion of runners who are over the age of 50 the mean time of ALL runners who completed the marathon22Slide 11Parameter of interest A parameter is a NUMBER describing somecharacteristic of a population. As the goal ofinference, we wish to estimate this number, ortest a hypothesized value of it. In this course we only consider two parameters of interest Mean ProportionThe director of Personnel for a large firmhas been assigned the task of developing aprofile of the company’s 3500 managers. A couple of characteristics of interestare: Average salary of ALL managers, µ The proportion who have completed the Notation: Population mean: µ Population proportion: pSlide 12ExampleBOTH are PARAMETERS!management training program, p

Slide 13Slide 14Our Goal in InferenceBut. The population we are interested in is usually too big. Inference teaches you what to do in this case. Inference is mainly concerned with the rules or logic of how theresults of a relatively small sample from a large populationcould be used to make inferences about the population. Let’s get back to our keywords.If ALL the populations, whatever we are interested in, wouldbe manageable in size, we would just figure out thepopulation parameter. Then there would be no need forinference.SampleSlide 15Slide 16Important note about the sample When the population is too big (ex.: all adults in the U.S)to find our parameter of interest, we have to take a sampleform the population. Then we can use the sample result tomake conclusions about the population parameter. Thisprocess is called INFERENCE.33The sample must be randomlyselected from the population. Ifsample data are not collected in anappropriate way, the data may be socompletely useless that no amountof statistical torturing can salvagethem.Copyright 2004 Pearson Education, Inc.Slide 17Sample or not sample? Let’s say our population of interest is ALL the members of theU.S. Senate, and our parameters of interest are the proportion of female Senates, p the average age of ALL members, µ Since there are only 100 Senate members, the population isrelatively small, so we don’t need to take a sample to estimate ourparameters of interest. We can just look at them and see whatpercent of them are females, and we can find the average age ofALL members.Slide 18Sample or not sample? A health advocacy agency suspects that the mean level ofacetaminophen (an active ingredient in pain relievers, andcold medications) manufactured by a certain company is notthe advertised value.It is impossible to measure the amountof acetaminophen in ALL the pills madeby this company, and therefore the meanacetaminophen level in ALL pills remains unknown.The agency will need to take a sample of pills, andmeasure the amount of acetaminophen in those pills.

Slide 19Sample statisticExample A statistic is a NUMBER describing some characteristic of asample. Notation: Sample mean:In random sample of 200 people from theSlide 20U.S. 12 people had blood type 0. That’s6% of the sample. This number was a littlesurprising because we know that about 4%of all people in the U.S. has blood type 0. What is the population of interest? All people in the U.S.x Sample proportion: What is the parameter of interest?BOTH are STATISTICS!p The proportion (percent) of ALL people inthe U.S. with blood type 0, which is 4%.With notation: p 4% What is the sample? The 200 randomly selected peopleinference What is the statistic? The proportion (percent) of the 200 peoplewho had blood type 0, which is 6%.

Four of these levels are discussed in thefollowing slides. Nominal level: categories only Ordinal level: categories with some order Interval level: meaningful differences but no naturalstarting point Ratio level: meaningful differences and a naturalstarting pointCopyright 2004 Pearson Education, Inc.When the number ofpossible values is either afinite number or a‘countable’ number ofpossible values.0, 1, 2, 3, . . .Slide 28ContinuousWhen data result frominfinitely many possible valuesthat correspond to somecontinuous scale that covers arange of values without gaps,interruptions, or jumps.Example: The amount of milkthat a cow produces; e.g. 2.34gallons per day.Nominal Level of MeasurementSlide 30Characterized by data that consist of names, labels, orcategories only. The data cannot be arranged in an orderingscheme (such as low to high).Examples:Survey responses of yes, no, undecidedPolitical affiliationCopyright 2004 Pearson Education, Inc.

Yet they are part of the population. Response bias: Fancy term for lying when you think youNonsampling Errorsample data that are incorrectly collected, recorded, or analyzed(such as by selecting a biased sample, using a defectiveinstrument, or copying the data incorrectly)should not tell the truth. Like if your family doctor asks:“How much do you drink?” Or a survey of female studentsasking: “How many men do you date per week?” People alsosimply forget and often give erroneous answers to questionsabout the past. Wording effects: Questions worded like “Do you agree that itis awful that ” are prompting you to give a particularresponse.Copyright 2004 Pearson Education, Inc.

Slide 55UndercoverageSlide 56Learning about populations from samplesUndercoverage occurs when parts of thepopulation are left out in the process of choosingthe sample.The techniques of inferential statistics allow us to drawBecause the U.S. Census goes “house to house,” homelesspeople are not represented. Illegal immigrants also avoid beingcounted. Geographical districts with a lot of undercoveragetend to be poor ones. Representatives from richer areastypically strongly oppose statistical adjustment of the census.inferences or conclusions about a population from a sample. Your estimate of the population is only as good as yoursampling design Work hard to eliminate biases. Your sample is only an estimate—and if you randomlyHistorically, clinical trials have avoided includingwomen in their studies because of their periods andthe chance of pregnancy. This means that medicaltreatments were not appropriately tested for women.This problem is slowly being recognized andaddressed.sampled again, you would probably get a somewhatdifferent result. The bigger the sample the better.101010
