## What is an example of a dependent sample?

## What is an example of a dependent sample?

In dependent samples, subjects in one group do provide information about subjects in other groups. For example, statisticians often consider different samples that include pairs of siblings to be dependent because one sibling can provide information about another sibling for some measurements.

## Can random samples be dependent?

When you conduct a hypothesis test using two random samples, you must choose the type of test based on whether the samples are dependent or independent. If the values in one sample affect the values in the other sample, then the samples are dependent.

**What is dependent sample?**

Paired samples (also called dependent samples) are samples in which natural or matched couplings occur. This generates a data set in which each data point in one sample is uniquely paired to a data point in the second sample. Independent samples consider unrelated groups.

### What is an example of a dependent t-test?

For example, you could use a dependent t-test to understand whether there was a difference in smokers’ daily cigarette consumption before and after a 6 week hypnotherapy programme (i.e., your dependent variable would be “daily cigarette consumption”, and your two related groups would be the cigarette consumption values …

### What are two random samples independent?

When are two random samples independent? When sample data drawn from one population are completely unrelated to the selection of data from the other population.

**How do you know if a sample is independent or dependent?**

Therefore, it’s important to know whether your samples are dependent or independent:

- If the values in one sample affect the values in the other sample, then the samples are dependent.
- If the values in one sample reveal no information about those of the other sample, then the samples are independent.

## What are two independent samples?

Independent Samples vs.Dependent Samples Two samples are independentif the sample values selected from one population are not related or somehow paired or matched with the sample values selected from the other population.

## What is the difference between a dependent and independent samples t-test?

Dependent samples are paired measurements for one set of items. Independent samples are measurements made on two different sets of items. If the values in one sample reveal no information about those of the other sample, then the samples are independent.

**What is another name for a dependent t-test?**

The dependent t-test (also called the paired t-test or paired-samples t-test) compares the means of two related groups to determine whether there is a statistically significant difference between these means.

### What’s the difference between independent and dependent t-test?

A t-test for independent means test two distinct groups of participants, each group is tested once. -A test for dependent means tests one group of participants, and each participant is tested twice.

### What is required for independent random sample?

1. Each member of the population must have an equal chance of selection. 2. The members are selected randomly instead of voluntarily selecting themselves.

**How do you know if two samples are independent?**

## How are two dependent samples different from independent samples?

Dependent Samples. Two samples are independent if the sample values selected from one population are not related or somehow paired or matched with the sample values selected from the other population. Two samples are dependent (or consist of matched pairs) if the members of one sample can be used to determine the members of the other sample.

## Which is an example of a random sample?

As long as every possible choice is equally likely, you will produce a simple random sample. Real world examples of simple random sampling include: At a birthday party, teams for a game are chosen by putting everyone’s name into a jar, and then choosing the names at random for each team.

**How is the population divided in random sampling?**

Volunteers are assigned randomly to one of two groups. The first group will receive the new drug; the second group will receive a placebo. In stratified random sampling, the population is divided into groups based on a shared characteristic. Each group is called a stratum; the plural is strata.

### When are two samples in a matched pair independent?

In general, two samples are dependent if the individuals in one sample determine the individuals in the other sample. (i.e. matched-pair design) Two samples are independent when the individuals in one sample do not determine the individuals in the other sample. (i.e. completely randomized)
