Warning

Statistics is a huge field, I’ve simplified considerably
here. For example:
– Mean, Median, and Standard Deviation

There are alternative formulas
– Standard Error and the 95% Confidence Interval

There are other ways to calculate CIs (e.g., z statistic instead of
t; difference between two means, rather than single mean…)
– Error Bars

Don’t go beyond the interpretations I give here!
– Comparing Means of Two Data Sets

We just cover the t test for two means when the variances are
unknown but equal, there are other tests
– Linear Regression

We only look at simple LR and only calculate the intercept, slope
and R2. There is much more to LR!

Populations and Samples

Population
– All of the possible outcomes of experiment or observation



US population
Particular type of steel beam
Sample
– A finite number of outcomes measured or observations
made


1000 US citizens

5 beams
We use samples to estimate population properties
– Mean, Variability (e.g. standard deviation), Distribution

Mean = Sum of values divided by number of samples
= (1+3+3+6+8+10)/6
= 5.2 NTU
Median = The middle number
Rank 1 2 3 4 5 6
Number 1 3 3 6 8 10
For even number of sample points, average middle two
= (3+6)/2 = 4.5
Excel: Mean – AVERAGE; Median - MEDIAN
Variance

Measure of variability
– sum of the square of the deviation about the
mean divided by degrees of freedom

n
– Estimate of mean depends on sample selected
– As n , variance of mean estimate goes down, i.e.,
estimate of population mean improves
– As n , mean estimate distribution approaches normal,
regardless of population distribution
95% Confidence Interval (CI) for Mean

Interval within which we are 95 % confident the
true mean lies
X  t 95%, n 1s X
 t95%,n-1 is
t-statistic for 95% CI if sample size = n
– If n  30, let t95%,n-1 = 1.96 (Normal Distribution)
– Otherwise, use Excel formula: TINV(0.05,n-1)

Using Error Bars to compare data

Standard Deviation
– Demonstrates data variability, but no comparison possible

Standard Error
– If bars overlap, any difference in means is not statistically
significant
– If bars do not overlap, indicates nothing!

95% Confidence Interval
– If bars overlap, indicates nothing!
– If bars do not overlap, difference is statistically significant

We’ll use 95 % CI

What can we do?
Plot mean water quality data for various
filters with error bars
 Plot mean water quality over time with error
bars

Comparing Filter Performance

Use t test to determine if the mean of two
populations are different.
– Based on two data sets

E.g., turbidity produced by two different filters
Comparing Two Data Sets using the t test

Example - You pump 20 gallons of water
through filter 1 and 2. After every gallon,
you measure the turbidity.
– Filter 1: Mean = 2 NTU, s = 0.5 NTU, n = 20
– Filter 2: Mean = 3 NTU, s = 0.6 NTU, n = 20

You ask the question - Do the Filters make
water with a different mean turbidity?
Do the Filters make different water?
Filter 1


Use TTEST (Excel)
Fractional probability of being wrong
if you answer yes
– We want probability to be small
 0.01 to 0.10 (1 to 10 %). Use 0.01

“t test” Questions

Do two filters make different water?
– Take multiple measurements of a particular water quality
parameter for 2 filters

Do two filters treat difference amounts of water
between cleanings?
– Measure amount of water filtered between cleanings for
two filters

Does the amount of water a filter treats between
cleaning differ after a certain amount of water is
treated?
– For a single filter, measure the amount of water treated
between cleanings before and after a certain total
amount of water is treated
