standard error

1. Aggregate precision of a measurement instrument based on a sample of measurements whose true errors are known

I want to estimate the accuracy and precision of aggregate data from an instrument that measures a variable that fluctuates over time by comparing a sample of its measurements to concurrent measurements made by a reference instrument. For this purpose, assume that the reference instrument...
2. Difference-in-differences in Health Economics Research

Hi, I'm doing a difference-in-differences analysis of a health policy intervention. Health clinics are paid for the percentage of eligible patients who they give the right treatment to. The clinics are measured/paid separately for each type of treatment indicator. One year, some of the...
3. Understanding the use of the standard error of differences between two means (SEDM)

Hello everyone, I am currently learning statistics using Van Emden's "Statistics for terrified biologists". I am trying to solve some exercices that the book offers you. One of the questions (1b) in the "Spare-time activities" section asks to find out if a mean value of 240 coming from the...
4. Calculate Standard Error over averaged responses or raw responses?

Hi, I would like to calculate the standard error of my Dependent Variable. However, I have psycholinguistic data, which uses multiple ppts and multiple items. Thus, there are 2 ways of doing this: either by calculating SE over averaged responses (example 1) OR by calcualting SEs over raw...
5. Standard error calculation for more than one sample size

Hi all I am conducting a meta analysis of pearsons r correlations. Whenever a study has presented more than one correlation I have averaged them into one correlation by converting them into fishers z scores. I now have the problem that I need to calculate a standard error and variance of the...
6. calculating standard error and variance of correlation estimates

Hi all I understand that to calculate the standard error of correlation estimates converted into fishers z scores you need to follow - 1/(√N−3) Now I have the standard error , I am wondering how I calculate the variance please? Thanks
7. Bayesian Posterior: SD = SE?

I was curious if the standard deviation in a Bayesian posterior is equal to the standard error?
8. Standard Error of Regression

Im currently working on a dissertation. After running an OLS regression I have a statistic called the standard error of the regression. I have analysed the standard error of the coefficients but I do not know what the difference between the standard error of regression and coefficient are...
9. What can the standard errors tell me?

Hello dear forum members! I wanted to share with you a couple graphs and seek your wisdom on the insights that I may be omitting. According to theory, there are merits to believe that relationship b/w X and Y is moderated by M. Notably, the relationship between X and M is likely to be...
10. Question on Standard Error

If I need to compute the standard error for a bunch of students' test averages, and there are 20 students, each of whose score is itself an average of 8 tests, will my N for SEM=sdev/SqRt(N) be 20? Or will it be 160? In other words, if my bar graph plots the mean of 20 students' averages, but...
11. Multivariate models - standard error help

I have 2 multivariate models created in R concerning nutrition Model 1 = -11.5±1.68 + 0.56±0.562 Intake + 16.6±0.165 Potassium concentration Model 2 = 16.6±0.123 Potassium concentration Both of these have come from the same data set. My question is, is it right that the standard error...
12. Regression analysis with sales forecasting

Hello, I am in the process of using a regression model to help predict the forecast of soft drinks. I have 52 sets of weekly data and my independent variables are feature space, temperature, price, competitor price and competitor feature space after having omitted some predictor variables due...
13. Combining Standard Errors of 16 portfolios

Hello everyone, I am working on Fama and French five factor model. I have run regression on 16 size- B/M excess portfolio returns on market premium, size premium, value premium, invesment premium and profitability premium. I have obtained coefficients of these factors, their standard errors...
14. Standard Error associated to a variable percentage

Context: I am a programmer, not a statistician, and I have only some vague ideas of statistical concepts. Also, my english is far from perfect, be patient please. My client needs an estimate of the percentage of taxes he is going to pay, based on what happened in the recent past. He needs...
15. Estimating location of lower tail

Say I have a sample, assumed from a Normal Distribution. I want to find a confidence interval for this parameter: L = \mu - \alpha * \sigma where \alpha is a known constant. I guess I should use the estimator: \bar{x} - \alpha*s But what standard error should I use? Just for...
16. Std. Error Multiple Regression Question

Hi guys, I'm stuck at interpreting the stadard error. In single regression it's clear, it's just the average distance from the line. But I don't really understand what this looks like in multiple regression. Does the standart error depend on the estimate or do I have to look at it in an...
17. [FactorialANOVA] Which N to use when converting standard error to standard deviation?

When converting standard error to standard deviation (using the formula SD = SE x SRT of N), I am having trouble with is which N to use - the N of the experimental group (for example), or the number of participants in the overall study. An ANOVA was conducted and I don't have the data but I...
18. General inverse variance method

Hi I hope I've posted this in the right place. I'm converting standardised mean differences to log OR for a meta-analysis. Just wanting to know can I combine log OR with the standard OR I have from papers? Or would I need to convert the OR's from papers into log ORs for analysis...
19. Pleease help!? Filling in "blanks" in Regression Output

Hello! Can someone please explain, I need to fill in the blanks marked They provide this info in a row: Coeff:-9074.674 Std.Err: ?? p-value: 0.000 95% Conf.Intervall: -13272.86, -4876,485 How do I calculate Std.Err & t-stat here? Please help me, thank you! :) Best Regards
20. SE of Reference category in Multinomial Logit Model

I used R to fit a Multinomial Logit model to my data. The data includes some categorical variables as effect coded variables. For example, one variable has four levels of which one is the reference level. When I fit the model I get coefficients and corresponding Standard Errors for all three...
