4. Hypothesis Testing (1) • A statistical hypothesis test is a method of making statistical decisions from and about experimental data. • Null-hypothesis testing just answers the question of “how well the findings fit the possibility that chance factors alone might be responsible.” • This is done by asking and answering a hypothetical question. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statistical_hypothesis_testing

5. Hypothesis Testing (2) • Hypothesis testing is largely the product of Ronald Fisher, Jerzy Neyman, Karl Pearson and (son) Egon Pearson. Fisher was an agricultural statistician who emphasized rigorous experimental design and methods to extract a result from few samples assuming Gaussian distributions. Neyman (who teamed with the younger Pearson) emphasized mathematical rigor and methods to obtain more results from many samples and a wider range of distributions. Modern hypothesis testing is an (extended) hybrid of the Fisher vs. Neyman/Pearson formulation, methods and terminology developed in the early 20th century.

9. Hypothesis Testing (7) • Parametric Tests: • Nonparametric Tests: • Bootstrap Tests • Permutation Tests

10. Confidence Intervals vs. Hypothesis Testing (1) • Interval estimation ("Confidence Intervals") and point estimation ("Hypothesis Testing") are two different ways of expressing the same information. http://www.une.edu.au/WebStat/unit_materials/ c5_inferential_statistics/confidence_interv_hypo.html

11. Confidence Intervals vs. Hypothesis Testing (2) • If the exact p-value is reported, then the relationship between confidence intervals and hypothesis testing is very close. However, the objective of the two methods is different: • Hypothesis testing relates to a single conclusion of statistical significance vs. no statistical significance. • Confidence intervals provide a range of plausible values for your population. http://www.nedarc.org/nedarc/analyzingData/ advancedStatistics/convidenceVsHypothesis.html

12. Confidence Intervals vs. Hypothesis Testing (3) • Which one? • Use hypothesis testing when you want to do a strict comparison with a pre-specified hypothesis and significance level. • Use confidence intervals to describe the magnitude of an effect (e.g., mean difference, odds ratio, etc.) or when you want to describe a single sample. http://www.nedarc.org/nedarc/analyzingData/ advancedStatistics/convidenceVsHypothesis.html

15. Methodology Flowchart R code Bootstrap Tests

16. Bootstrap Tests • Beran (1988) showed that bootstrap inference is refined when the quantity bootstrapped is asymptotically pivotal. • It is often used as a robust alternative to inference based on parametric assumptions. http://socserv.mcmaster.ca/jfox/Books/Companion/appendix-bootstrapping.pdf

17. Hypothesis Testing by a Pivot http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pivotal_quantity

18. One Sample Bootstrap Tests • T statistics can be regarded as a pivot or an asymptotic pivotal when the data are normally distributed. • Bootstrap T tests can be applied when the data are not normally distributed.

19. Bootstrap T tests • Flowchart • R code

21. Bootstrap T Tests by R

22. An Example of Bootstrap T Tests by R

23. Bootstrap Tests by The “BCa” • The BCa percentile method is an efficient method to generate bootstrap confidence intervals. • There is a correspondence between confidence intervals and hypothesis testing. • So, we can use the BCa percentile method to test whether H0 is true. • Example: use BCa to calculate p-value

24. BCa Confidence Intervals: • Use R package “boot.ci(boot)” • Use R package “bcanon(bootstrap)” • http://qualopt.eivd.ch/stats/?page=bootstrap • http://www.stata.com/capabilities/boot.html

36. Permutation Tests • Methodology • Flowchart • R code

37. Permutation • In several fields of mathematics, the term permutation is used with different but closely related meanings. They all relate to the notion of (re-)arranging elements from a given finite set into a sequence. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Permutation

38. Permutation Tests • Permutation testisalso called a randomization test, re-randomization test, or an exact test. • If the labels are exchangeable under the null hypothesis, then the resulting tests yield exact significance levels. • Confidence intervals can then be derived from the tests. • The theory has evolved from the works of R.A. Fisher and E.J.G. Pitman in the 1930s. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pitman_permutation_test

39. Applications of Permutation Tests (1) We can use a permutation test only when we can see how to resample in a way that is consistent with the study design and with the null hypothesis. http://bcs.whfreeman.com/ips5e/content/ cat_080/pdf/moore14.pdf

40. Applications of Permutation Tests (2) • Two-sample problemswhen the null hypothesis says that the two populations are identical. We may wish to compare population means, proportions, standard deviations, or other statistics. • Matched pairs designswhen the null hypothesis says that there are only random differences within pairs. A variety of comparisons is again possible. • Relationships between two quantitative variableswhen the null hypothesis says that the variables are not related. The correlation is the most common measure of association, but not the only one. http://bcs.whfreeman.com/ips5e/content/ cat_080/pdf/moore14.pdf

46. Bootstrap Tests vs. Permutation Tests • Very similar results between the permutation test and the bootstrap test. • is the exact probability when . • is not an exact probability but is guaranteed to be accurate as an estimate of the ASL, as the sample size B goes to infinity. https://www.cs.tcd.ie/Rozenn.Dahyot/453Bootstrap/05_Permutation.pdf

47. Cross-validation • Methodology • R code

48. Cross-validation • Cross-validation, sometimes called rotation estimation, is the statistical practice of partitioning a sample of data into subsets such that the analysis is initially performed on a single subset, while the other subset(s) are retained for subsequent use in confirming and validating the initial analysis. • The initial subset of data is called the training set. • the other subset(s) are called validation or testing sets. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross-validation

49. Overfitting Problems • In statistics, overfitting is fitting a statistical model that has too many parameters. • When the degrees of freedom in parameter selection exceed the information content of the data, this leads to arbitrariness in the final (fitted) model parameters which reduces or destroys the ability of the model to generalize beyond the fitting data. • The concept of overfitting is important also in machine learning. • In both statistics and machine learning, in order to avoid overfitting, it is necessary to use additional techniques (e.g. cross-validation, early stopping, Bayesian priors on parameters or model comparison), that can indicate when further training is not resulting in better generalization. • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overfitting
