1.  An investigator wants to test if there is a difference in endotoxin levels in children who are exposed to endotoxin as a function of their proximity to operating farms.  The following are endotoxin levels in units per milligram of dust sampled from children’s mattresses, organized by children’s proximity to farms.

Within 5 Miles  54  62  78  90  70 

5-24.9 Miles  28  42  39  81  65 

25-49.9 Miles  37  29  30  50  53 

50 Miles or More  36  19  22  28  27 

Total Sample (Ordered Smallest to Largest)

< 5 Miles

5-24.9 Miles

25-49.9 Miles

50+ Miles

Based on comparing H to the critical value to the Critical value which of the following is (are) true?

A.  There is significant evidence at alpha=0.05 t o show that the populations of endotoxin levels in children living varying distances from operating farms are not equal.

B.  There is not significant evidence at alpha =0.05 to show that the populations of endotoxin levels in children living varying distances from operating farms are not equal.
