See also: Random sample and Random assignment For a given dataset that was produced by a randomization design, the randomization distribution of a statistic under the null-hypothesis is defined by evaluating the test statistic for all of the plans that could have been generated by the randomization design. In frequentist inference, randomization allows inferences to be based on the randomization distribution rather than a subjective model, and this is important especially in survey sampling and design of experiments. The statistical analysis of a randomized experiment may be based on the randomization scheme stated in the experimental protocol and does not need a subjective model. In some cases, such randomized studies are uneconomical or unethical. Model-based analysis of randomized experiments[ edit ] It is standard practice to refer to a statistical model, often a linear model, when analyzing data from randomized experiments.
The answer can't be put in a few sentences so, in order not to bore your audience who may be asking the question only out of politeness , you try to say something quick and witty.
It usually doesn't work. Logical development, proofs, ideas, themes, etc. When this endeavor was started, we were not sure how well it would work. The final judgment of our success is, of course, left to the reader. The book is intended for first-year graduate students majoring in statistics or in a field where a statistics concentration is desirable.
The prerequisite is one year of calculus. Some familiarity with matrix manipulations would be useful, but is not essential. The book can be used for a two-semester, or three-quarter, introductory course in statistics. Chapters 5 and 6 are the first statistical chapters. Chapter 5 is transitional between probability and statistics and can be the starting point for a course in statistical theory for students with some probability background.
In particular, the likelihood and invariance principles are treated in detail. Along with the sufficiency principle, these principles, and the thinking behind them, are fundamental to total statistical understanding.
Chapters represent the central core of statistical inference, estimation point and interval and hypothesis testing. A major feature of these chapters is the division into methods of finding appropriate statistical techniques and methods of evaluating these techniques. Different concerns are important, and different rules are invoked. Of further interest may be the sections of these chapters titled Other Considerations. Here, we indicate how the rules of statistical inference may be relaxed as is done every day and still produce meaningful inferences.
Many of the techniques covered in these sections are ones that are used in consulting and are helpful in analyzing and inferring from actual problems. The final three chapters can be thought of as special topics, although we feel that some familiarity with the material is important in anyone's statistical education. Chapter 11 deals with the analysis of variance oneway and randomized block , building the theory of the complete analysis from the more simple theory of treatment contrasts.
Our experience has been that experimenters are most interested in inferences from contrasts, and using principles developed earlier, most tests and intervals can be derived from contrasts. Finally, Chapter 12 treats the theory of regression, dealing first with simple linear regression and then covering regression with "errors in variables.
As more concrete guidelines for basing a one-year course on this book, we offer the following suggestions.
There can be two distinct types of courses taught from this book. For such students we recommend covering Chapters in their entirety which should take approximately 22 weeks and spend the remaining time customizing the course with selected topics from Chapters Once the first nine chapters are covered, the material in each of the last three chapters is self-contained, and can be covered in any order. Another type of course is "more practical. It stresses the more practical uses of statistical theory, being more concerned with understanding basic statistical concepts and deriving reasonable statistical procedures for a variety of situations, and less concerned with formal optimality investigations.
Such a course will necessarily omit a certain amount of material, but the following list of sections can be covered in a one-year course: Chapter 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Sections All 2. The material in Sections The exercises have been gathered from many sources and are quite plentiful. We feel that, perhaps, the only way to master this material is through practice, and thus we have included much opportunity to do so.
The exercises are as varied as we could make them, and many of them illustrate points that are either new or complementary to the material in the text. Some exercises are even taken from research papers. It makes you feel old when you can include exercises based on papers that were new research during your own student days!
Although the exercises are not subdivided like the chapters, their ordering roughly follows that of the chapter. Subdivisions often give too many hints. As this is an introductory book with a relatively broad scope, the topics are not covered in great depth.
However, we felt some obligation to guide the reader one step further in the topics that may be of interest. Examples of frequentist inference[ edit ] Confidence interval Frequentist inference, objectivity, and decision theory[ edit ] One interpretation of frequentist inference or classical inference is that it is applicable only in terms of frequency probability ; that is, in terms of repeated sampling from a population.
However, the approach of Neyman  develops these procedures in terms of pre-experiment probabilities. That is, before undertaking an experiment, one decides on a rule for coming to a conclusion such that the probability of being correct is controlled in a suitable way: such a probability need not have a frequentist or repeated sampling interpretation.
In contrast, Bayesian inference works in terms of conditional probabilities i.
The frequentist procedures of significance testing and confidence intervals can be constructed without regard to utility functions. However, some elements of frequentist statistics, such as statistical decision theory , do incorporate utility functions.
Loss functions need not be explicitly stated for statistical theorists to prove that a statistical procedure has an optimality property. Bayesian inference uses the available posterior beliefs as the basis for making statistical propositions.
There are several different justifications for using the Bayesian approach. Examples of Bayesian inference[ edit ] Bayes factors for model comparison Bayesian inference, subjectivity and decision theory[ edit ] Many informal Bayesian inferences are based on "intuitively reasonable" summaries of the posterior.
For example, the posterior mean, median and mode, highest posterior density intervals, and Bayes Factors can all be motivated in this way. While a user's utility function need not be stated for this sort of inference, these summaries do all depend to some extent on stated prior beliefs, and are generally viewed as subjective conclusions. Methods of prior construction which do not require external input have been proposed but not yet fully developed. Formally, Bayesian inference is calibrated with reference to an explicitly stated utility, or loss function; the 'Bayes rule' is the one which maximizes expected utility, averaged over the posterior uncertainty.
