Example: One Sample t-Test

January 31, 2012

(This article was first published on ALSTAT R Blog, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

Using the stack loss dataset, test the hypothesis that the mean of the stackloss is equal to 20 versus a two-sided alternative. 




Interpretation: With the p-value greater than the level of significance alpha at 0.05, then we lack the evidence to reject the null hypothesis. And thus, the true mean is equal to 20.
