Then what is your null hypothesis?
(Well, I thought (when you had told us that there was a distance) that I had suggested a more efficient evaluation. But it is your study!)
hlsmith mentioned in an earlier post that I should do a Fisher's exact test to analyse my results. Is this not correct test to use to check my null hypothesis?
Then what is your null hypothesis?
(Well, I thought (when you had told us that there was a distance) that I had suggested a more efficient evaluation. But it is your study!)
What was your evaluation? Sorry, I'm not being funny, I'm quite confused...I thought is was an example of how to do Fisher's using R?? If you could explain your reasoning for the evaluation and how you did it, if not too much trouble?? I have worked out distances for each site in relation to the bird roosting site, you mentioned 'plugging them in' but not sure what you mean by this :-s
Basically, in my report I need to analyse my data (with a p value) to reject or accept hypothesis. I need to tell them which statistical software I used and also put in my appendix the whole calculation that the software gave me...my tutor is nuts about statistics and I really want to get this right.
Thanks, S
Are you serious?
Have you not read the above posts that we wrote above to help you?
Just plug in the correct distance in the code I showed and rerun it again!
Code:infect <- c(6 , 6 , 7 , 9 , 14) noninfect <- c(44, 44, 43,41 , 36) distance <- c(5 , 4, 3, 2 , 1) mod <- glm(cbind(infect,noninfect) ~ distance, family=binomial) summary(mod)
I must say!!
Yes I am serious
Like I said, I have no statistical knowledge whatsoever.
How do I rerun it, on what software??

BTW If you read my reply to Victor I did say thanks.
