Question

The article “Arsenic and Mercury in Lake Whitefish and Burbot Near the Abandoned Giant Mine on Great Slave Lake” (P. Cott, B. Zajdlik, et al., Journal of Great Lakes Research, 2016:223–232) presents measurements of arsenic concentrations in fish found in Northern Canada. In a sample of 8 whitefish caught in Yellowknife Bay, the mean arsenic concentration in the liver was 0.32 mg/kg, with a standard deviation of 0.05 mg/kg. Can you conclude that the mean arsenic concentration in whitefish in Yellowknife Bay is greater than 0.3 mg/kg?

    A Canadian study measuring depression level in teens (as reported in the Journal of Adolescence, vol. 25, 2002) randomly sampled 112 male teens and 101 female teens, and scored them on a common depression scale (higher score representing more depression). The researchers suspected that the mean depression score for male teens is higher than for female teens, and wanted to check whether data would support this hypothesis. If μ1 and μ2 represent the mean depression score for male teens and female teens respectively, which of the following is an appropriate pair of hypotheses in this case? Check all that apply.
  • Stressed-Out Bus Drivers. Previous studies have shown that urban bus drivers have an extremely stressful job, and a large proportion of drivers retire prematurely with disabilities due to occupational stress. In the paper, “Hassles on the Job: A Study of a Job Intervention With Urban Bus Drivers” (Journal of Organizational Behavior, Vol. 20, pp. 199–208), G. Evans et al. examined the effects of an intervention program to improve the conditions of urban bus drivers.Amongother variables, the researchers monitored diastolic blood pressure of bus drivers in downtown Stockholm, Sweden. The data, in millimeters of mercury (mm Hg), on the WeissStats site are based on the blood pressures obtained prior to intervention for the 41 bus drivers in the study. Use the technology of your choice to do the following. a. Obtain a normal probability plot, boxplot, histogram, and stemand-leaf diagram of the data. b. Based on your results from part (a), can you reasonably apply the one-mean t-test to the…
    The article “Dynamics of Insulin Action in Hypertension: Assessment from Minimal ModelInterpretation of Intravenous Glucose Tolerance Test Data” (R. Burattini, M.

Ten patientswith high blood pressure had a mean value of 3.4 with a standard deviation of 0.6, and eightpatients with normal blood pressure had a mean value of 7.9 with a standard deviation of0.6. Units are 10−5 · min−1 · pmol−1. Find a 98% confidence interval for the difference inmean levels between those with high blood pressure and those with normal blood pressure.
    Low-Birth-Weight Hospital Stays. Data on low-birthweight babies were collected over a 2-year period by 14 participating centers of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development Neonatal Research Network. Results were reported by J. Lemons et al. in the on-line paper “Very Low Birth Weight Outcomes of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development Neonatal Research Network” (Pediatrics, Vol. 107, No. 1, p. e1). For the 1084 surviving babies whose birth weights were 751– 1000 grams, the average length of stay in the hospital was 86 days, although one center had an average of 66 days and another had an average of 108 days. a. Can the mean lengths of stay be considered population means? Explain your answer. b. Assuming that the population standard deviation is 12 days, determine the z-score for a baby’s length of stay of 86 days at the center where the mean was 66 days. c. Assuming that the population standard deviation is 12 days, determine the z-score for a…
