two measurements on a single individual during a study (response variable, explanatory variable)
positive if while X increases Y increases
Negative if while X increases Y decreases
denoted by r, a number that gives the direction and strength of a linear relationship between two Quantitative variables
properties for r
both variables must be quantitive
sign of r denotes direction
r is between -1 and +1
no unit of measure
is affected by outliers
an equation that fits the pattern between a response variable and explanatory variable, accounting for deviations in the model
vertical distance from observed y to the line
facts about regression line
a change in one standard deviation x accounts for a r change in standard deviation y...
regression line passes through point (Xbar, Ybar)
it tells us the percentage of variation in Y that is explained by the least-squares regression line...
or.... it is a measure of how successfully the regression explains the response y
residual plot diagnostics
smile or frown shape-means there is a non-linear relationship
Megaphone-indicates constant variation (variation in y is dependant on x)
shoe-boX: point outside indicates outlier in x or Y direction
an observation that if removed would change the regression line slope and y-intercept noticeably
-otliers in x direction are often influential
-influential observations may have small residuals
-not all outliers are influential observations
drawbacks of observational studies
-cannot systematically change x to observe y
-cannot establish causation; on correlation or association
demonstrates that a great deal of care has to be taken when combining small data sets into a large one. Sometimes conclusions from the large data set are exactly the opposite of conclusion from the smaller sets. Unfortunately, the conclusions from the large set are also usually wrong.
rules of data analysis
-always plot your data
-always describe shape, center, spreadof distributions
the outcome of one play is unpredictable, but the outcome of many plays forms a distribution and then we can make a prediction
probability of an outcome
portion of how many times an out come occurs based on repition of plays (total)
-sum of all probabilities must equal 1
- the probe that event will NOT occur = 1-prob that it will occur
two events that have no outcomes in common and, thus, cannot both occur simultaneously.
Law of large numbers
If population has a finite mean mu or if x-bar is used to estimate mu,
as sample sixe increases, x-bar gets closer to mu
sampling distribution of x-bar
the distribution of all x-bar values from all possible samples of the same size from a population - (x-bar=mu)
-standard deviation of x-bar= standard deviation of pop/square root of n
-standard deviation of x-bar is always less than pop standard deviation where n>1
Central limit theorem
if you take a large srs of size n from any population shape gets more normal as n increases
-one point above or below control limits
-9 points in a row on the same side of the centerline
