In our situation, mean is not a good choice, because the distributions of profits or sales are naturally skewed. Simple graphical tools for the inspection of distributions are introduced in the next section. 1 Simple Graphics The degree of skewness of a distribution can be investigated by constructing histograms using the hist function. 1 first divides the plot region into two equally spaced rows (the layout function) and then plots the histograms of the raw market values in the upper part using the hist function.

N1· n2· .. nrc n·c nr· n Under the null hypothesis of independence of the row variable x and the column variable y, estimated expected values Ejk for cell (j, k) can be computed from the corresponding margin totals Ejk = nj· n·k /n. The test statistic for assessing independence is r c X2 = j=1 k=1 (njk − Ejk )2 . Ejk Under the null hypothesis of independence, the test statistic X 2 is asymptotically distributed according to a χ2 -distribution with (r − 1)(c − 1) degrees of freedom, the corresponding test is usually known as chi-squared test.

Write a general R function to calculate both standardised and adjusted residuals for any r × c contingency table and apply it to the piston ring data. Ex. 4 For the data in table rearrests estimate the difference between the probability of being rearrested after being tried in an adult court and in a juvenile court, and find a 95% confidence interval for the population difference. 1 Introduction There are many experimental designs or studies where the subjects are not a random sample from some well-defined population.
