• Standard Deviation vs. Standard Error
• n = sample size
• Sigma (Ïƒ) = standard deviation
• SEM = standard error of the mean
• SEM = Ïƒ/âˆšn
• SEM < Ïƒ
• SEM decreases as n increases
• z-scores
• 1 = +/- 1Â Ïƒ around mean
• 2Â = +/- 2Â Ïƒ around mean
• 3Â = +/- 3Â Ïƒ around mean
• Confidence Interval (CI)
• Describes the range in which the mean would be expected to fall if the study were performed again and again
• = range from [mean - Z(SEM)] to [mean + Z(SEM)]
• 95% CI (alpha = 0.05) is standard
• Â for 95% CI, Z = 1.96
• Outcomes
• ifÂ 0Â falls within the CI when calculating theÂ differenceÂ between 2 variables,Â H0Â is not rejected and the result is not significantifÂ
• 1Â falls within the CI when calculatingÂ ORÂ orÂ RR, H0Â is not rejected and the result is not significant
• T-test vs. ANOVA vs. Ï‡2
• T-test
• compares the means of 2 groups on a continuous variable
•  ANOVA (analysis of variance)
• compares the means of 3 or more groups on a continuous variable
• Ï‡2Â ("chi-squared")
• tests whether 2 nominal variables are associatedÂ
• used with 2x2 tables
• e.g.,Â effect of treatment on disease
• Correlation Coefficient (r)
• Pearson coefficient, r, is always between -1 and +1
• Absolute value indicates strength of correlation between 2 variables
• Coefficient of determination = r2
• Attributable Risk (AR)
• AR is incidence in the exposed (Ie) - incidence in the unexposed (Iu) = Ie - Iu
• Ie = a/(a+b)
• Iu = c/(c+d)
• AR = a/(a+b) - c/(c+d)
• The AR percent (ARP) is the attributable risk divided byÂ incidence in the exposed (Ie)
• ARP = 100* (Ie-Iu)/Ie =Â 100*[a/(a+b) - c/(c+d)]/[a/(a+b)]
• note that relative risk (RR) = Ie/Iu = a/(a+b) DIVIDED BY c/(c+d)
• using math tricks
• ARP = (RR-1)/RRÂ
