You have chosen the Single Sample Z-Test with your answers to the Choose Your StatsTest questions. To summarize how you got here:
- Choose Your StatsTest: You chose Difference. You are looking for a statistical test to compare your sample with another sample or a population average.
- Difference: You chose Continuous Variable of Interest. Your variable of interest is continuous, meaning it can take on basically any value.
- Continuous Variable of Interest: You chose One Sample Tests (single group). You only have one group of samples, and you would like to compare that sample with a population average.
- One Sample Tests (single group): You chose Normal Variable of Interest (and Population Variance Known). Your variable of interest is normally distributed, meaning it is bell shaped and most of the data is in the center. Additionally, you know the population variance (the spread of the data for your variable of interest) and your sample size is greater than 30.
