Description

This template will run an F-test to check if two continuous variables have the same means.

Introduction

F test compares the means of two continuous variables. In other words it shows if their means were statistically different. We should be careful, while using the F test, because of the strict normality assumption, where strict means approximately normal ditribution is not enough to satisfy that.

Normality assumption check (Internet usage for educational purposes (hours per day))

The Shapiro-Wilk test, the Lilliefors test and the Anderson-Darling test help us to decide if the above-mentioned assumption can be accepted of the Internet usage for educational purposes (hours per day).

Method Statistic p-value
Lilliefors (Kolmogorov-Smirnov) normality test 0.2223 2.243e-92
Anderson-Darling normality test 42.04 3.31e-90
Shapiro-Wilk normality test 0.7985 6.366e-28

So, the conclusions we can draw with the help of test statistics:

As you can see, the applied tests confirm departures from normality.

Normality assumption check (Age)

The Shapiro-Wilk test, the Lilliefors test and the Anderson-Darling test help us to decide if the above-mentioned assumption can be accepted of the Internet usage for educational purposes (hours per day).

Method Statistic p-value
Lilliefors (Kolmogorov-Smirnov) normality test 0.17 6.193e-54
Anderson-Darling normality test 32.16 1.26e-71
Shapiro-Wilk normality test 0.8216 9.445e-27

So, the conclusions we can draw with the help of test statistics:

As you can see, the applied tests confirm departures from normality.

In this case it is advisable to run a more robust test, then the F-test.

The F-test

Here is the the result of the F test to compare the means of Internet usage for educational purposes (hours per day) and Age.

Method Statistic p-value
F test to compare two variances 0.08618 3.772e-180

We can see from the table (in the p-value coloumn) that there is a significant difference between the means of Internet usage for educational purposes (hours per day) and Age.

The F-test

Here is the the result of the F test to compare the means of cyl and drat.

Method Statistic p-value
F test to compare two variances 11.16 1.461e-09

We can see from the table (in the p-value coloumn) that there is a significant difference between the means of cyl and drat.
