TESTE DEIN WISSEN

What is the importance of statistics?

Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN

It enables us to:

- empirically test hypotheses and theories

- evaluate information in

an objective way so we can draw conclusions about our scientific object.

TESTE DEIN WISSEN

Describe advantages and disadvantages of four sample layout systems

Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN

Stratified random sampling is more efficient because the variance within the layer (stratum) is smaller, if the differences between layers (strata) are larger.

TESTE DEIN WISSEN

What are the four characteristics of a scientific hypothesis?

Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN
1. Must be focused on something real, that can be investigated empirically
2. Can be generalized
3. Can be disproven, which implies
4. A conditional sentence (If…then…)

TESTE DEIN WISSEN

What is the difference between empirical and other research?

Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN

Empirical research is a research approach that makes use of evidence-based data while non-empirical research is a research approach that makes use of theoretical data.

TESTE DEIN WISSEN

When you wrongly reject H0 (null hypothesis)

TESTE DEIN WISSEN

What is the degree of freedom?

Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN

df = n-1

1) The number of independent comparisons that can be made in a set of data.

2) The maximum number of quantities whose values are free to vary before the remainder of the quantities are determined.

TESTE DEIN WISSEN

Describe the steps in performing a frequency distribution by means of Excel.

Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN

First, think about class width “every class should somehow be occupied”
Start with the lower class limit, end with the upper class limit
call up the frequency function: FREQUENCY(data;classes).
Fill in the empirical data under “Data” and the predefined classes under “classes”. Mark the cells where your frequencies are to appear and then press “F2”.

Press “Ctrl-Shift-Enter“ at the same time.

TESTE DEIN WISSEN

Explain the Chi test for normality

Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN

The Chi-Square Test for Normality allows us to check whether or not a model or theory follows an approximately normal distribution.

Null-hypothesis: there is no difference between observed and expected (normal distribution) data.

p < 0.05 --> the observed data is significantly different from the an expected normal distribution data

Please indicate 2 examples for scientific and 2 examples for non-scientific hypotheses.

TESTE DEIN WISSEN

SCIENTIFIC
- If the amount of investments in a country increase, the GDP will increase as well.

- Trees from lower slopes are bigger than trees from flat plateaus.

NON-SCIENTIFIC

-  There are investments that increase the GDP. --> cannot be falsified.

-It is possible that a moderate thinning from below would lead to a greater total growth

TESTE DEIN WISSEN

How can we illustrate variability in recorded data?

Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN

to measure Variability we use mainly the frequency distribution

there are other measures like sum of differences, sum of square differences, the variance, the standard diviation, the sampling distribution of the mean, the sampling error of the mean

To illustrate this we can use plots like the dot plot or a graph with probability density function
