• Diet and Health

This case study compares a low-fat diet to a "Mediterranean diet" to see which led to better health. Concept: Chi Square test of independence
• Physical Strength and Job Performance

This case study aims to answer the question, "How does one select employees to perform physically demanding jobs?" It examines the relationship between isometric strength tests and job performance for 147 workers. Concepts: correlation, linear regression, multiple regression.

This case study covers the following concepts: confidence intervals for proportions and the normal approximation to the binomial. It also assesses the question: "What proportion of the iMac purchasers are new computer owners?"
• Natural Language Interface

This case study assesses the question, "Is it easier to learn to use computer software that uses natural language commands?" Concepts: analysis of covariance, adjusted means, boxplots
• Physicians' Reactions to Overweight Patients

This case study assesses the question, "Do physicians discriminate against overweight patients?" This study indicates that, at least in one respect, they do. Concepts: t-test, means, boxplots
• Against All Odds: 28. Inference for Proportions

This free online video program "marks a transition in the series: from a focus on inference about the mean of a population to exploring inferences about a different kind of parameter, the proportion or percent of a population that has a certain characteristic. Students will observe the use of confidence intervals and tests for comparing proportions applied in government estimates of unemployment rates."
• Against All Odds: 26. Case Study

This free online video program "presents a detailed case study of statistics at work. Operating in a real-world setting, the program traces the practice of statistics - planning the data collection, collecting and picturing the data, drawing inferences from the data, and deciding how confident we can be about our conclusions. Students will begin to see the full range and power of the concepts and techniques they have learned."
