Generalize CI - Intro to Inferential Statistics

  • 0:00 - 0:07
    Well, this value here is just a point. It's mu, which is what we already know,
  • 0:07 - 0:13
    the mean clock score, 37.72 in our last example, plus 1.96. It doesn't really
  • 0:13 - 0:19
    make sense to add a z score, so this value is not an interval and it doesn't
  • 0:19 - 0:23
    even make sense. Here, we're getting a little closer because now we have an
  • 0:23 - 0:29
    interval. But as I said before, it doesn't make sense to just subtract a z score
  • 0:29 - 0:34
    because this is the number of standard deviations away from the mean, so we want
  • 0:34 - 0:39
    to find the value along the x-axis for this interval. This one looks more
  • 0:39 - 0:45
    promising. We have our sample mean. And we subtract 1.96 standard deviations,
  • 0:45 - 0:51
    and since the standard deviation is sigma divided by root n that would be this
  • 0:51 - 0:56
    value here, and then if we add 1.96 standard deviations that would give this
  • 0:56 - 1:01
    value here. And that is our confidence interval. So, we found the answer. But
  • 1:01 - 1:06
    let's explore this one anyway. This one we can't even figure out what it is
  • 1:06 - 1:11
    because we don't know this population mean after the intervention. So, we're not
  • 1:11 - 1:17
    able to compute this. If you selected this one, then you were pretty close. So,
  • 1:17 - 1:18
    good job.
