 Descriptive
Stat and Justify Selection  Nominal
Ordinal  Interval Ratio

making? Provide examples other than those already posted in class.

graph and what conclusion you could draw. 
Be sure to include a reference to the article that you used.

industries? How do ethics affect your chosen level of significance? Can you
reject and accept the null hypothesis at the same time? Explain why or why not.

 

 

Week 4, DQ 2

Why does the significance level differ among
industries? Will the null hypothesis be more likely to be rejected at α = 0.01
than α = 0.10? As the significance level increases to α = 0.10 from α = 0.01,
which type error is more likely to occur? What can be done to reduce the
likelihood of incurring this error?

 

 

Week 4, DQ 3

Why is the coefficient of correlation an important
tool for statisticians? Provide some specific examples from real life.
