- 10.1: Inference for Categorical Data
- This chapter 6 introduces inference in the setting of categorical data We will find that the methods we learned in previous chapters are very useful in these settings. Sample proportions are well characterized by a nearly normal distribution when certain conditions are satisfied, making it possible to employ the usual confidence interval and hypothesis testing tools.
- 10.1.1: Inference for a Single Proportion
- 10.1.2: Difference of Two Proportions
- 10.1.3: Testing for Goodness of Fit using Chi-Square (Special Topic)
- 10.1.4: Testing for Independence in Two-Way Tables (Special Topic)
- 10.1.5: Small Sample Hypothesis Testing for a Proportion (Special Topic)
- 10.1.6: Randomization Test (Special Topic)
- 10.1.7: Exercises

- 10.2: Hypothesis Testing with Two Samples
- You have learned to conduct hypothesis tests on single means and single proportions. You will expand upon that in this chapter. You will compare two means or two proportions to each other. To compare two means or two proportions, you work with two groups. The groups are classified either as independent or matched pairs.
