### Question Description

Introduction

You have seen a lot of statistic and statistical techniques. This week, your problem of the week is to analyze another scholarly and quantitatively-based article of your choice to demonstrate your application of the concepts of the class. You can read research! (Feel free to mimic the manner of presentation given in the paper to your project presentation, due next week.)

Activity Instructions
Locate another scholarly article (different from Week 3) of your choice based upon major or some interest of yours, preferably related to your upcoming project presentation which is Annual Pizza Consumption in the U.S. Read the article and address the following:

• Describe the type of statistical test that was done and why that was the appropriate test for this study.
• List and describe alpha for one statistical test in this study.
• List the p-value.
• Explain why/why not the p-value is statistically significant, and how you know.
• List five other statistical facts that we have studied this semester that are mentioned in the article. Explain what each of your chosen facts mean within the context of this study.
• Highlight the p-value and factoids.
• Upload the highlighted article with your analysis.
• See example paper for format.

MAT273 Article Analysis Name: Example Citation: White, M., Mulvey, P., Fox, A., Choate, D. (2012). A Hero’s Welcome? Exploring the Prevalence and Problems of Military Veterans in the Arrestee Population. Justice Quarterly, 29(2), 258286 1. Describe the type of statistical test that was done and why that was the appropriate test for this study. A chi square test for independence and logistic regression test were both done. The fist was appropriate as the categories listed on pages 273 and 275 are all nominal. However, the authors also used a predictive model for qualitative model called logistic regression. Both tests for both veterans and non-veterans were looking for statistical significance with many independent variables. 2. List and describe alpha for one statistical test in this study. List the p-value, explain why/why not it is statistically significant, and describe its meaning in the context of this study. α = .05 and p < .05 (the specific value is not provided, only that the probability is less than .05) on all charted values on page 273 and 275 Alpha is the percent that we are willing to be wrong; since p is less than alpha, we will reject the null hypothesis. Statistical significance exists in any result noted with an *, meaning that the information can be extended to the population of veterans or non-veterans, as appropriately measured and indicated in the charts on pages 273 and 275. 3. List 5 other statistical facts that we have studied this semester that are mentioned in the article. Explain what each of your chosen facts mean within the context of this study. a) n = 2102 - the sample size was 2102 arestees (p. 270) b) p < .05- probability of a true null hypothesis is very unlikely (less than 5%) (p. 273) c) systematic sampling- choosing every other person until the quote is met in each prison (p. 266) d) x bar= 41.7- the average age of arrested veterans was 41.7 (p. 270) e) Yes/No answers by percentage- nominal level data in answer to having served in the military (p. 270) MAT273 Article Analysis Name: Example APA Citation: 1.
