Difference in Difference with Multiple Time Stages]]>

T Test is defined as a test for checking how unlikely a difference between two groups’ averages is occurred because of random chance in sample selection. The T-Statistics is the number that the T-Test provides, defined as (mean - Null Hypothesis)/Standard_Deviation where Null Hypothesis is 0 because we the null hypothesis is that the group have the same average.

If this number, in absolute value term, is big...

I am reporting the number of statistically significant differences found on a series of 110 t tests with and without applying the Benjamini, Krieger and Yekutieli multiple comparisons correction method.

My answer:

1a) To minimize, you make the decision rule being, reject null hypothesis if x-bar is more than 1, or less than 0. Since there is 0 probability of happening, you never make a type 1 error

b) 1 - p-cubed

c) 0.9 cubed = 0.729

However, I don't exactly understand the concept of this question. So we know the probability of x bar being 1 is p cubed, however, is that even the same as the probability of a type 1 error being made? Also, am I...
