1. ### Comparing average of two results!

So here is a question which asks me to compare the mean results. https://ibb.co/g4YSDHN So I calculated the mean number of deaths per 100000 people i.e (2479/216,565,318)*100000 = 1.14. So what to say? The per-day deaths of 2019 were greater than that of in 2020. That's it?
2. ### Can I exclude outliers when calculating mean or standard deviation (small-sample)?

Hey, I am analyzing my results for a high-school biology paper. My data set consists of 20 groups in total, each having 4 repeats, so each is a small sample. I have a few (4) outliers that have a value lower than the control group (which is practically impossible and thus certainly the effect of...
3. ### Finding sample mean for normal distribution

Hello friends, I require help on the below question on normal distribution. "An e-commerce company tries to settle the customer complaints on refund within 5 days. If a refund is not processed within 5 days, then the company has to provide coupons for Rs.500 to the customer. If the company...
4. ### Ordinal Model: Acceptability/alternatives to using mean and weighting factors

I've been asked to validate a model created by someone else and need some help on how the final score is calculated. Have put lots of detail; apologies for the post length. The output (dependent) variable is ordinal scale with 5 points (i.e. 1-5) representing an assessment of risk (not risky...
5. ### Overlapping confidence intervals and p values

Hi, I've been given the mean and 95% confidence interval (CI) of two independent groups and asked if they were satistically significantly different or not? I know that if the CIs of the two groups don't overlap at all, then they can be considered as significantly different. However if the CI do...

7. ### Back-calculation (a posteriori) of the minimum sample size for a mechanical experiment

Hello, I want to back-calculate the minimum sample size for a mechanical experiment. I have a known mean and standard deviation of a statistical population. From the statistical population I chose two samples with means and standard variances I could estimate. My question is: How can I...
8. ### Calculation of overall ranking from mean, SD, and Z score

Hey everyone, I was hoping someone could help me. Im applying for a job, and am trying to work out my overall ranking in two seperate exams so that I can include this in the application. Could someone please tell me if my calculation is correct? I have attached the file with my calculation...
9. ### Determining significant difference in mean ratings between two products

Hi all, I have gathered 180 respondents and asked them to rate two products (so each respondents rates both products). The only difference between the two products is that one product has an extra feature and the other does not. Now I want to know whether there are significant differences...
10. ### Which one to choose? Mean or Median

11. ### Normal Distribution of multiple Std.Dev´s and Means

Is there a way to calculate the Normal Distribution of a set of multiple Standard Deviations (SD) and Means (µ)? I am afraid I do no have Access to the raw data from which the SD´s and µ´s were calculated. Many thanks in advance
12. ### Can I compare results from 5 point likert scale to results from 4 point likert scale?

Can I compare mean (descriptive analysis) from 5 point likert scale to a mean of 4 point likert scale? Results from 5 point likert scale: M: 3.34 (SD: .80) Results from 4 point likert scale: M: 2.18 (SD .44) I want to compare these results, is that possible? Thanks in advance,
13. ### Statistical power of two dataset

Hi All, I would like to inquire how to decide whether Dataset A or Dataset B would be reliable based on their coefficient of variation, number of data points and mean value. What kind of factors could be considered? I am not searching for the direct answer but rather to jump into the...
14. ### How can I find an interval estimate for the mean of a Weibull distribution?

I have a sample of n = 75 taken from a Weibull distribution and have computed mle estimates for the scale a and shape b parameter. The mean of a Weibull distribution (2 parameter) is given as u = a^(-1/b)*gamma(1+ 1/b) In which case I can find an estimate for u by simply plugging in the mle...
15. ### Hypothetical Statistics Question Regarding Class Curve, Standard Dev, and Mean

Theoretical question: So say there is a course where if you score two standard deviations below the mean, you will fail the course. The class average will be roughly a 75%, not sure what to set as the baseline for standard dev, and say 150 people are in the class. One person is added to the...
16. ### Merits and Demerits

What is the merits and demerits of mean median and mode? I have already found a link discussing the topic I want to that is helpful or not.
17. ### plot mean value according to confidence interval

Hi all, i have a very simple question, because i am not good at statistics but i need that :) I have two signals, one is lets say 'x' another is 'time', so its a time serie. I need to find the upper and lower values of my signals according to confidence interval and then show them on a graph...
18. ### How to find the probability of a sampling error made in estimating the population mean?

Alright, I have been working on my statistics assignment since Monday and I only have two questions left, dealing with the probability of a sampling error. Unfortunately, I cannot find anything in my notes and only a brief example in my textbook that does not explain the concepts behind the...
19. ### Average of standard deviation as repeat accuracy for five measurement series

Hi there, I hope you can help me with the following question. I measured the power input and output of a storage and retrieval vehicle with 1,000 single measuring points. I repeated the measurement five times with the same measure method and same time steps. The result is five measurement series...
20. ### There was a significant difference between mean scores, so what’s next?

What’s the mathematical meaning of a significant difference between mean scores? What should we expect? What we are allowed to say about our two groups? For example, if I have done a survey and I have a significant difference between males and females in intelligence. After this survey what I am...
