# Types of Statistical Tests in Nigeria

## What are the 3 statistical tests?

These types of test includes t-tests,z-tests and anova tests, which assume data is from normal distribution.

## How do I know which statistical test to use?

**statistical test**to be valid, your sample size needs to be large enough to approximate the true distribution of the population being studied. To determine which

**statistical test to use**, you need to know: whether your data meets certain assumptions. the types of variables that you’re dealing with.

## What is Z test and t test?

**Z Test**is the statistical hypothesis which is used in order to determine that whether the two samples means calculated are different in case the standard deviation is available and sample is large whereas the

**T test**is used in order to determine a how averages of different data sets differs from each other in case

## What is the R test in statistics?

**test**used to

**test**if the mean of a sample from a normal distribution could reasonably be a specific value.

## What does t test tell you?

**t test tells you**how significant the differences between groups are; In other words it lets

**you**know

**if**those differences (measured in means) could have happened by chance. A

**t test**can

**tell you**by comparing the means of the two groups and letting

**you**know the probability of those results happening by chance.

## What is R and P in correlation?

**correlation**coefficient

**r**with

**P**-value. The Pearson

**correlation**coefficient is a number between -1 and 1. The

**P**-value is the probability that you would have found the current result if the

**correlation**coefficient were in fact zero (null hypothesis).

## Does P-value show correlation?

**p**–

**value**tells you whether the

**correlation**coefficient is significantly different from 0. (A coefficient of 0 indicates that there is no linear relationship.) If the

**p**–

**value**is less than or equal to the significance level, then you can conclude that the

**correlation**is different from 0.

## What is P and R value?

**R**squared is about explanatory power; the

**p**–

**value**is the “probability” attached to the likelihood of getting your data results (or those more extreme) for the model you have. It is attached to the F statistic that tests the overall explanatory power for a model based on that data (or data more extreme).

## What is a good R value statistics?

**r**is to +1 or -1, the more closely the two variables are related. If

**r**is close to 0, it means there is no relationship between the variables. If

**r**is positive, it means that as one variable gets larger the other gets larger.

## What does R 2 tell you?

**R-squared**(

**R**) is a statistical measure that represents the proportion of the variance for a dependent variable that’s explained by an independent variable or variables in a regression model.

^{2}## Is 0.2 A strong correlation?

**correlation**is considered

**strong**,

**moderate**or weak. For this kind of data, we generally consider

**correlations**above 0.4 to be relatively

**strong**;

**correlations**between

**0.2**and 0.4 are

**moderate**, and those below

**0.2**are considered weak.

## Which correlation is the weakest among 4?

**weakest**linear

**relationship**is indicated by a

**correlation**coefficient equal to 0. A positive

**correlation**means that if one variable gets bigger, the other variable tends to get bigger. A negative

**correlation**means that if one variable gets bigger, the other variable tends to get smaller.

## What does a correlation of 0.75 mean?

**0.75**or -0.50 to –

**0.75**indicate moderate to good

**correlation**, and r values from

**0.75**to 1 or from –

**0.75**to -1 point to very good to excellent

**correlation**between the variables (1).

## What does a correlation of 0.9 mean?

**correlation**coefficient, denoted r, For example, a

**correlation**of r =

**0.9**suggests a strong, positive association between two variables, whereas a

**correlation**of r = -0.2 suggest a weak, negative association.

## How do you read a correlation chart?

**How to Read a Correlation Matrix**

- -1 indicates a perfectly negative linear
**correlation**between two variables. - 0 indicates no linear
**correlation**between two variables. - 1 indicates a perfectly positive linear
**correlation**between two variables.

## How do you know if a correlation is strong or weak?

The **Correlation** Coefficient**When** the r value is closer to +1 or -1, it indicates that there is a stronger linear relationship between the two variables. A **correlation** of -0.97 is a **strong**negative **correlation** while a **correlation** of 0.10 would be a **weak** positive **correlation**.

## What are the 2 variables in a regression analysis?

**regression analysis**, the dependent

**variable**is denoted Y and the independent

**variable**is denoted X.

## What is used to show the relationship between two variables?

**relationship between two**quantitative

**variables**is a scatterplot. Many research projects are correlational studies because they investigate the

**relationships**that may exist

**between variables**.

## What are regressions in statistics?

**Regression**is a

**statistical**method used in finance, investing, and other disciplines that attempts to determine the strength and character of the relationship between one dependent variable (usually denoted by Y) and a series of other variables (known as independent variables).

## How do you analyze regression results?

**regression**coefficient tells you whether there is a positive or negative correlation between each independent variable and the dependent variable. A positive coefficient indicates that as the value of the independent variable increases, the mean of the dependent variable also tends to increase.

## How do you interpret statistical results?

**Interpret the key results for Descriptive Statistics**

- Step 1: Describe the size of your sample.
- Step 2: Describe the center of your
**data**. - Step 3: Describe the spread of your
**data**. - Step 4: Assess the shape and spread of your
**data**distribution. - Compare
**data**from different groups.

## What is Homoscedasticity in statistics?

**statistics**,

**homoscedasticity**occurs when the variance in scores on one variable is somewhat similar at all the values of the other variable.

## How do you determine which variables are statistically significant?

**statistically significant**probability that the relationship between the two

**variables**exists and is not due to chance, and reject the null hypothesis.

## What is the most common statistical test?

**Four common Statistical Test ideas to share with your academic…**

- T-Tests. Paired t-tests are used to compare two variables from the same population
- Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) The t-tests described above have several limitations
- Correlation and Regression
- Nonparametric Tests.

## What are statistical tests in research?

A statistical test provides a mechanism for making quantitative decisions about a process or processes. The intent is to determine whether there is enough evidence to “reject” a conjecture or hypothesis about the process. The conjecture is called the null hypothesis.
