Comparing Two Populations or
Treatments
Suppose we have a population of adult men
with a mean height of 71 inches and
standard deviation of 2.5 inches. We also have a
population of adult women with a mean height of
65 inches and standard deviation of 2.3 inches.
Assume heights are normally distributed.
Suppose we take a random sample of 30 men and
a random sample of 25 women from their
respective populations and calculate the

Are women still paid less than men for comparable
work? A study was carried out in which salary data
was collected from a random sample of men and from a
random sample of women who worked as purchasing

In a study on food intake after sleep deprivation,
men were randomly assigned to one of two
treatment groups. The experimental group were required
to sleep only 4 hours on each of two nights, while the
control group were required to sleep 8 hours on each of
two nights. The amount of food intake (Kcal) on the day
following the two nights of sleep was measured. Compute
a 95% confidence interval for the true difference in the
mean food intake for the two sleeping conditions.

Suppose that an investigator wants to determine
if regular aerobic exercise improves blood
pressure. A random sample of people who jog
regularly and a second random sample of people
who do not exercise regularly are selected
independently of one another.
Can we conclude that the difference in mean
blood pressure is attributed to jogging?
What about other factors like weight?
One way to avoid these difficulties
would be to pair subjects by weight
then assign one of the pair to jogging
and the other to no exercise.

Can playing chess improve your memory? In a study,
students who had not previously played chess participated
in a program in which they took chess lessons and played

distribution that is approximately normal.

Investigators at Madigan Army Medical Center tested
using duct tape to remove warts. Patients with warts
were randomly assigned to either the duct tape
treatment or to the more traditional freezing treatment.
Those in the duct tape group wore duct tape over the
wart for 6 days, then removed the tape, soaked the area
in water, and used an emery board to scrape the area.
This process was repeated for a maximum of 2 months or
until the wart was gone. The data follows:
n
Number with wart
successfully removed
Liquid nitrogen freezing

Do these data suggest that freezing is less
successful than duct tape in removing warts?

Where p1 is the true proportion of warts that
would be successfully removed by freezing and p2
is the true proportion of warts that would be
successfully removed by duct tape
Assumptions:
1) Subjects were randomly assigned to the two treatments.
2) The sample sizes are large enough because:
n1p1 = 100(.6) = 60 > 10
n1(1 – p1) = 100(.4) = 40 > 10
n2p2 = 100(.85) = 85 > 10 n2(1 – p2) = 100(.15) = 15 > 10

Since the P-value < a, we reject H0. There is

freezing than for the duct tape treatment.

The article “Freedom of What?” (Associated Press,
February 1, 2005) described a study in which high school
students and high school teachers were asked whether
they agreed with the following statement: “Students
should be allowed to report controversial issues in their
student newspapers without the approval of school
authorities.” It was reported that 58% of students
surveyed and 39% of teachers surveyed agreed with the
statement. The two samples – 10,000 high school
students and 8000 high school teachers – were selected
from schools across the country.
Compute a 90% confidence interval for the
difference in proportion of students who
agreed with the statement and the proportion
of teachers who agreed with the statement.
