It equals zero when π1 = π2 , that is, when the response is independent of the group classification. Let p1 and p2 denote the sample proportions of successes. The sample difference p1 − p2 estimates π1 − π2 . For simplicity, we denote the sample sizes for the two groups (that is, the row totals n1+ and n2+ ) by n1 and n2 . 1) The standard error decreases, and hence the estimate of π1 − π2 improves, as the sample sizes increase. 1 For a significance test of H0 : π1 = π2 , a z test statistic divides (p1 − p2 ) by a pooled SE that applies under H0 .

7. Report the P -value. d. 074). 05. 5 found binomial P -values for a clinical trial with y = 9 successes in 10 trials. Suppose instead y = 8. 2: a. 50. b. 50. c. 0 for the mid P -value? 15 If Y is a variate and c is a positive constant, then the standard deviation of the distribution of cY equals cσ (Y ). Suppose Y is a binomial variate, and let p = Y /n. a. √ Based on the binomial standard deviation for Y , show that σ (p) = [π(1 − π)/n]. b. 50. 16 Using calculus, it is easier to derive the maximum of the log of the likelihood function, L = log , than the likelihood function itself.

3 THE ODDS RATIO We will next study the odds ratio, another measure of association for 2 × 2 contingency tables. It occurs as a parameter in the most important type of model for categorical data. 25 = 3. 0 when a success is more likely than a failure. 0, a success is four times as likely as a failure. 0. We then expect to observe four successes for every one failure. When odds = 1/4, a failure is four times as likely as a success. We then expect to observe one success for every four failures. 8.
