2. Chapter Outline • Chi square ( 2): testing the observed versus the expected • Procedures for rank-order data • Correlation • Differences among groups

3. Analyzing Data Appropriately • Behavioral scientists believe most data are normally distributed: God loves the normal curve! • Is that true? Micceri (1989) said no for large data sets in psychology. • Do we as scientists look carefully at the distribution of our data? God may not love the normal curve!

4. Parametric Statistical Procedures Are parametric statistical procedures sensitive to nonnormality? Substantial evidence exists that parametric statistical procedures are not as robust to violations of the normality assumption as once thought.

5. Chi Square: Testing the ObservedVersus the Expected • Formula for chi square  2 = (O – E)2 / Ewhere O = observed frequency and E = expected frequency

6. Coach Rabbitfoot and His Tennis Courts df = # cells – 1 = # courts – 1 = 4 – 1 = 3 X 2 (3) = 7.19, p > .05, not significant

7. Contingency Tables • Chi square with two or more categories and two or more groups • Athletes and nonathletes respond to an ethical statement about whether one should tell the umpire if they trap a fly ball in baseball. • The athletes respond on a Likert-type scale: 3 = Agree, 2 = No opinion, 1 = Disagree

8. Working Out the Answer X 2 = (–342/64) + (–342/80) + (–102/56) + (102/70) +(442/80) + (–442/100) = 79.29 df = (r – 1) (c – 1) = (2 – 1)(3 – 1) = 2, p < .01

9. Puri and Sen Rank-OrderGeneral Linear Method • This method maintains good power. • This method protects against type I error. • Change data to ranks. • Use any of the standard parametric procedures for ranked scores using SPSS or SAS.

10. General Linear Model (GLM) • Basis for procedures of • regression: r, R, Rc • differences: t, ANOVA, MANOVA • Y = B X + EY = vector of scores on p dvsX = vector of scores on q IvsB = pq matrix of regression coefficientsE = vector of errors

11. Calculating the Test Statisticfor Ranked Data • Instead of the parametric test statistic (t or F), calculate L.L = (N – 1)r2df = pq

12. Example From Regression Can skinfold measurements be used to predict percentage fat (determined by underwater weighing) in women grouped by ethnicity? Data from K.T. Thomas et al., 1997.

19. 3  2 ANOVA Results for Original Data • Original data • Grade: F(2, 174) = 7.30, p < .001 • Sex: F(1, 174) = 17.48, p < .001 • Interaction: not significant

20. 3  2 ANOVA Resultsfor Ranked Data • Ranked data • Grade: L(2) = 11.67, p < .005 • Sex: L(1) = 13.21, p < .001 • Interaction: not significant

21. Example UsingRepeated-Measures ANOVA . Does VO2 differ by walking speeds in older and younger participants? Data from P.E. Martin, D.E., Rothstein, & D.D. Larish, 1992, “Effects of age and physical activity status on the speed-aerobic demand relationship of walking,” Journal of Applied Physiology, 73: 200-206.

23. Example Using Factorial MANOVA Do four ethnic groups at two age levels differ on two skinfold measurements and hip-to-waist ratio? Data from K.T. Thomas et al., 1997.

24. Using MANOVA on Originaland Ranked Data • Data are for four ethnic groups (African American, European American, Mexican American, and Native American) at two age levels (20–30 and 40–50 years). They include the previously reported data on abdomen and calf skinfolds and add a third dependent variable, hip-to-waist ratio.

25. 4 (Ethnic Group)  2 (Age Level) MANOVA on Three Dependent Variables • Original data • Ethnic group: F(3, 152) = 5.64, p <.0001 • Age level: F(3, 152) = 7.86, p <.0001 • Interaction: not significant • Ranked data (Pillai’s trace = R2) • Ethnic group: L(3) = 22.54, p <.0001 • Age level: L(9) = 41.86, p <.0001 • Interaction: not significant

26. Applications to GLM • These procedures are appropriate for all GLM models. • Regression: Pearson r, multiple R canonical (Rc) • ANOVA: t, simple and factorial ANOVA (including repeated measures), ANOCOVA • Multivariate techniques: Discriminant analysis, MANOVA (including repeated measures), MANCOVA

27. Summary • Are data from physical activity normally distributed? • If not, changing data to ranks and using nonparametric procedures allows the researcher the alternative of using standard statistical packages while calculating only the L statistic.
