Question

Preliminary data analyses indicate that you can reasonably use a t-test to conduct each of the hypothesis tests required in Exercises

Apparel and Services. According to the document Consumer Expenditures, a publication of the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average consumer unit spent $1736 on apparel and services in 2012. That same year, 25 consumer units in the Northeast had the following annual expenditures, in dollars, on apparel and services.

1279 1457 2020 1682 1273
2223 2233 2192 1611 1734
2688 2029 2166 1860 2444
1844 1765 2267 1522 2012
1990 1751 2113 2202 1712

At the 5% significance level, do the data provide sufficient evidence to conclude that the 2012 mean annual expenditure on apparel and services for consumer units in the Northeast differed from the national mean of $1736? (Note: The sample mean and sample standard deviation of the data are $1922.76 and $350.90, respectively.)
