    which statistical test to use?




    Hi people,

    Im a statistic student curently and Im wondering which hypothesis statistical test i should use.

    It is to compare the mean of year pre financial crisis (from Year 2000-2009) to post financial crisis (Year 2010 onwards)

    Edited:
    I would like to find out if the mean amount of loan from pre-financial crisis has increase significantly as compared to the mean amount for loan from post financial crisis.

    I would like to also add that I was given the statistic data for amount of loan from year 1980 till year 2015. It was extracted from a government statistic board website.



    I was thinking of using Pair Sample Test. But im not sure if i am correct.
    Please enlighten me, thank you!

    Would you be interested and subtracting the two values (since they are paired) and comparing that value to "0"?


    What is your sample size and are there any issues with non-normality of values.
