Does it appear that, on average, all groups have the same underlying mean value for the response variable when we use a randomized block design? 28 SCIENTIFIC DATA GATHERING vii. Does the distribution of the response variable over the treatment groups appear to be the same for the two designs? Explain any difference. viii. Which design will give us a better chance for detecting a small difference in treatment effects?

It is the third quartile minus ﬁrst quartile IQR = Q3 − Q1 . The quartiles are not outliers, so the interquartile range is not inﬂuenced by outliers. Nevertheless it is not used very much in inference because like the median it doesn’t have good math or combining properties. 2 n V ar(y) = 1 × (yi − y¯)2 . n i=1 In physical terms, it is the second moment of inertia about the mean. Engineers refer to the variance as the MSD, mean squared deviation. It has good mathematical properties, although more complicated than those for the mean.

On the average, does stratiﬁed random sampling give the strata in their correct proportions? iii. Does the mean of the sampling distribution of the sample mean for stratiﬁed random sampling appear to be close enough to the population mean that we can consider the difference to be due to chance alone? ) (d) Draw 200 cluster random samples using the macro and put the output in columns c16-c19. Answer the following questions from the output: i. Does cluster random sampling always have the strata represented in the correct proportions?
