Exercise Questions

1.

1.1: The 2014 selected sample or block of houses have a mean of -8.38%, a

standard deviation of 25.5% and a range of 157 according to their pHQ2014

percentages.

1.2: The 2014 neighborhood or entire population of houses have a mean of

-3.65%, a standard deviation of 28.4 and a range of 167 according to their

pHQ2014 percentages.

1.3: Comparing these three statistics, you can deduce that the block sample

mean (-8.38%) is a little worse than the mean of the entire neighborhood (3.65%). The block sample also has a slightly lower standard deviation (25.5)

than the neighborhood standard deviation (28.4) which means it has a lower

average variability. The block sample is also slightly narrower as it has a smaller

range of 157 compared to 167 of the entire neighborhood. This is due to that the

block sample does not include extreme cases or outliers that the population does

include.

1.4: The block sample has 151 houses and the neighborhood has 476 houses. By

dividing 476 by 151, you get 32%. Therefore, you can conclude that your sample

has roughly one third of all surveyed houses.

1.5: In this question, we will be using the framework of the distance from the

core hypothesis which states that houses nearest to the core are more poorly

maintained for many reasons. Therefore, those houses located in the core have

lower exterior quality than anywhere else in the neighborhood. My null

hypothesis is that there is no average difference between the sample and the

neighborhood or population overall exterior quality.

- Research Hypothesis: since it has to be two-tailed, it will state that there is

going to be significantly lower or higher average quality of homes on the

block than in the neighborhood as a whole.

2.

2.1: Firstly, the formula for finding the Zobs is: ((block mean pop. Mean)/pop.

SD/root of sample pop)). Therefore, the calculation is: (-8.38)-(3.65)/(28.4/root of

157) = (4.73)/(2.31) = -2.05.

2.2: Therefore, we reject the null hypothesis of no difference at alpha of 0.05.

This is due to because -2.05 is located in the tail of the curve and it is unusual.

2.3: The research hypothesis of worse or better maintained houses located near

the core is supported because the block sample had a lower pHQ than the

population as whole.

3.

3.1: The 2014 selected sample or block of houses have a mean of -5.9%, a

standard deviation of 29.1% and a range of 164 according to their pHQ2014

percentages.

3.2: The 2014 neighborhood or entire population of houses have a mean of

-2.49%, a standard deviation of 30.3 and a range of 184 according to their

pHQ2014 percentages.

3.3: Comparing these three statistics, you can deduce that the block sample

mean (-5.9%) is a little worse than the mean of the entire neighborhood (2.49%). The block sample also has a slightly lower standard deviation (29.1%)

than the neighborhood standard deviation (30.3%) which means it has a lower

average variability. The block sample is also slightly narrower as it has a smaller

range of 164 compared to 184 of the entire neighborhood. This is due to that the

block sample does not include extreme cases or outliers that the population does

include.

3.4: The block sample has 96 houses and the neighborhood has 305 houses. By

dividing 96 by 305, you get 31%. Therefore, you can conclude that your sample

has roughly one third of all surveyed houses.

3.5: In this question, we will be using the framework of the distance from the

core hypothesis which states that houses nearest to the core are more poorly

maintained for many reasons. Therefore, those houses located in the core have

lower exterior quality than anywhere else in the neighborhood. My null

hypothesis is that there is no average difference between the sample and the

neighborhood or population overall exterior quality.

- Research Hypothesis: since it has to be two-tailed, it will state that there is

going to be significantly lower or higher average quality of homes on the

block than in the neighborhood as a whole.

4.

4.1: Firstly, the formula for finding the Zobs is: ((block mean pop. Mean)/pop.

SD/root of sample pop)). Therefore, the calculation is: (-5.9)-(2.49)/(30.3/root of

96) = (-1.1)

4.2: Therefore, we reject the null hypothesis of no difference at alpha of 0.05.

This is due to because -2.05 is located in the tail of the curve and it is unusual.

4.3: The research hypothesis of worse or better maintained houses located near

the core is not supported because the pHQ block sample of 2009 was not worse

or better than that of 2014.

5.

5.1: Regarding the sample block in 2014, the mean of the pHQ percentage is

-9.76% and the standard deviation is 26.6%. The number of houses within in the

sample block is 151.

5.2: Regarding the sample block in 2009, the mean of the pHQ percentage is

-5.9% and the standard deviation is 29.1%. The number of houses within in the

sample block is 96.

5.3: By comparing the means in 2009 and 2014, you can conclude that the

overall exterior quality of the houses dropped a little due to the mean dropping

from -5.9% in 2009 to 9.76% in 2014. Additionally, in regards to the standard

deviation, 2009 is wider or has more variability due to a larger standard

deviation of 29.1% in 2009 to the 26.6% in 2014.

5.4: A research hypothesis explaining why a houses overall exterior quality may

change over time first must be two-tailed and the deterioration or renovation

hypothesis will be applied. Therefore, the hypothesis is that homes on the block

are deteriorating over time because owners are unable or unmotivated to repair

their homes or that houses on the block are improving through time because

owners are able or motivated to repair their homes. In general, houses on the

block are going to have better or worse overall exterior quality for 2014 than

earlier in 2009.

6.

6.1: Firstly, the formula for finding the Tobs: (block mean 2014-block mean

2009)/(standard error of mean). (The standard error of mean is found in the

chart) Therefore, the calculation is (9.76) (-5.9)/3.25 = -1.19 but getting rid of

the negative sign making it simply 1.19.

6.2: We begin by comparing with the T critical at alpha 0.05. Since you have 95

degrees of freedom (number of houses-1), the degrees of freedom in this

particular question is 1.990 at 90. Therefore, we fail to reject the null hypothesis

because it will change through time.

6.3: Furthermore, we observe that homes on the block in 2009 as well as 2014

are similar OEQ averages and this does not support our research hypothesis of

improving or deteriorating houses.
