    Hello, I have results from an experiment where a number (n=50) of biological samples were pooled together with a single measurement of chemical level taken for control and experimental pooled sample. How would I calculate the significance of difference between these measurements, where I only...

    TTEST vs Logistic Regression

    I have seen some posts here with the same title but I believe my problem is different: I am unsure whether to conduct a 2 sample ttest or a logistic regression because I am unsure of which variable should be my outcome and which should be my predictor variable. The problem: There are 5...

    Performing multiple t-tests on different variables between the same two groups

    Hey everyone I would like to perform multiple t test on different variables ( let's say A B C D E ) in two different groups ( 1 2 ) and test if the means, variance, kurtosis is significantly different between A1 and A2, B1 and B2 etc. How do you think I should go about this in R or SAS ...

    What to do if sample size is too big? (ttest)

    So I'm running ttests for a descriptive statistic table and all my results are significant, but I"m concerned that the sample size is too big 3,880 obs for each of the two groups. (This is bank data by qtr appended into one file.) I understand that the large sample size is probably making...

    Hypothesis testing - ttest difference in 1-tail versus 2-tail

    Hi, I am runnings some Ttests, and when I conduct a one-tailed test to see if Variable "a" is greater than Variable "b" the result says to reject the null hypothesis, but when I conduct a two-tailed test to see if Variable "a" is different than variable "b" the result says not to reject the...

    t-tests vs chi square test/Fisher's exact test

    Hello forum friends! So I have been using excel to compare if two groups are statistically significantly different. My null Hypothesis is that these two groups are the same (or that there is no difference between groups). When comparing my Hispanic population vs non-Hispanic population...

    Using ttest instead of R-Squared for acceptance

    I have independent variable X and dependent variable Y. I am trying to compare the predictive power of a number of regression based models. For each model I obtain a R-Squared value. Also for each model I can obtain predicted Y (call it Y_new). What if I perform ttest on (Y_give - Y_new) to test...

    Correlation Between Unpaired Data?

    What type of statistics compares or finds correlation of unpaired data? I'm assuming an XY scatter plot wouldn't work. I'm also assuming a t-test or Krus Wallis would be more appropriate? For example: Group A: 1, 3, 5, 1, 4. (n=5) and Group B: 5, 6, 7, 1, 2, 5, 6. (n=7). Total number of samples...

    Performing a t-test on averages??

    Is it "statistically legal" to perform a t-test on the averages of two groups? In other words, the data set values are averages themselves (example: a ttest performed on GPAs). I realize that doing a ttest on averages is pretty much like taking the average of averages, which is in most cases a...
