The reason we use moving averages in the first place is that a lot of timeseries data is noisy; due to errors in data collection or random fluctuations in the realworld phenomenon, the data jumps...

Let's consider each statement in turn. "It is good practice to include a measure of expected forecast error with any forecast."That one is clearly true. You always want to include error measures in...

Math
The oneway analysis of variance allows us to compare the values of parameters (often means) between groups. The assumptions to perform an ANOVA test are that the samples are taken from normal...

i) One group pretest/posttest design Here, the experiment is carried out on only one group. The main advantage to having one group is that variability between individuals' results in the...

A U.S. travel center survey report states that Americans stayed an average of 7.5 nights when they went on vacation. The sample size is 1500. The point estimate of the population mean is the...

Math
Using the fact the expected value operator E(X) is linear we have that `E[g(X) ] = g(E[X])` if `g(x)` is a linear function. In this case we are given that `g(x) = a` so that `E[g(X)] = g(E[X]) =...

We have that the random variable `X` is such that `X ~`~ Pois(`lambda`) where the mean is given by `lambda=5` . We would like to know the expected value of the random variable `Y = 2^X` Using the...

The confidence intervals given will be of the form `hat(p) pm z_(1alpha/2)sqrt((hat(p)(1hat(p)))/n)` where `z_(1alpha/2)` is the 100(alpha/2)th percentile of the standard Normal distribution....

In all of these cases, we are doing some sort of test. We are asking a yes or no question and trying to answer it with our test. In Option 1, we ask if Mary is pregnant. In Option 2, we ask if...

If you wish to carry out a linear regression then create a new variable `x_1 = sin(xpi)` and carry out the regression of `y` on `x_1` in the usual way, ie fit `y = alpha + betax_1` using...

When you are looking balance, such as in a statistical graph, and you are looking at symetrical balance you are looking at a graph that has a even number of people before and after the mean. This...

The sample taken is a simple random sample (srs) so is representative of the population as a whole. If 1139 out of the 1201 Americans sampled were found to live in neighborhoods with acceptable...

Denote the observations `x_i`, `i = 1,2,3,...,10` Then the mean `bar(x)` is given by `bar(x) = sum_1^10 x_i/10 = 70.5` and the standard deviation is given by `sd(x) = sqrt(V(x)) = sqrt(sum_1^10...

When testing a hypothesis it is very important to be clear about what measure is actually of interest and what target population it applies to. Often when we collect data we cannot get directly at...

The most likely answer is that this data would be nominal. Depending on how the political scientist was gathering the data, it could conceivably be ordinal or even interval. But this is much less...

When you are talking about type 1 errors you are looking at a statistical term that means that after running a statistical analysis you have rejected a null hypothesis (the hypothesis that states...

Correlational data cannot tell us that causation has occurred. We should also note, though, that correlation does not mean that causation has notoccurred. All that correlation can tell us is that...

The reason for this is that statistics can easily be manipulated to tell a story that a particular source wants them to tell. Therefore, you need to have evidence from a source that is not trying...
