### Transcription: Effect Size & Power

*Hi, welcome to educator.com.*0000

*We are going to talk about effect size and power.*0002

*So effect size and power, 2 things you need to think about whenever you do hypothesis testing.*0005

*So first effect size.*0011

*We are going to talk about what effect sizes is by contrasting it to the T statistic.*0013

*They actually have a lot in common but there is just one subtle difference that makes a huge difference.*0019

*Then we are going to talk about the rules of effect size and why we need effect size.*0026

*Then we are going to talk about power.*0032

*What is it, why do we need it, and how do all these different things affect power for instance sample size,*0035

*effect size, variability in alpha, the significance level.*0042

*So first things first, just a review of what the sample T really means.*0048

*So a lot of times people just memorize the T formula, it is you know the X bar minus mu over standard error but think about what this actually means.*0056

*So T equals X bar minus mu over the standard error.*0070

*And all right that is S sub X bar.*0076

*What this will end up giving you is this distance so the distance between your sample and your hypothesized mu.*0079

*And when you divided by standard error you get how many standard errors you need in order to get from bar to your mu.*0087

*So you get distance in terms of standard error.*0097

*So distance in terms of standard error.*0102

*And you want to think of in terms sort of like instead of using like feet or inches or number of friends, we get distance in the unit of standard error.*0111

*So whatever your standard error is for instance here that looks about right, because this is the normal*0123

*distribution that should be about 68% so that is the standard error.*0132

*Your T is how many of these you need in order to get to T.*0139

*So this might be like a T of 3 1/2, 3 1/2 standard errors away gets you from mu to your sample difference and so this is the case of the two sample t-test.*0146

*So independent samples are paired samples where we know the mu is zero.*0164

*So this is sort of the concept behind the T statistic.*0169

*Now here is the problem with this T statistic.*0175

*It is actually pretty sensitive to N.*0181

*So let us say you have a difference that is very, that is going to stay the same so a difference between, you know let us say 10 and 0.*0185

*So we have not that difference.*0199

*If you have a very very large N then your S becomes a lot skinnier.*0202

*And because of that your standard error is also going to shrink so the standard error shrinks as N shrinks.*0212

*And because of that, even though we have not changed anything about this mean, about the X bar or mu,*0226

*by shrinking our standard error we made our T quite large.*0237

*So we made our T like all of a sudden were 6 standard or errors away but I really have not changed the picture.*0244

*So that is actually a problem that T is so highly affected by N.*0252

*The problem with that is that you could artificially make a difference between means, look statistically significant by having a very large N.*0258

*So we need something that tells us this distance that is less affected by N and that is after effects size comes in.*0268

*So in effect size what we are doing is we want to know the distance in terms of something that is not so affected by N.*0278

*And in fact we are going to use the population standard deviation because let us think about T.*0288

*So that is X bar minus mu over standard error.*0295

*So this contrast that to looking at the distance in terms of the standard deviation of the population, what would that look like.*0303

*Well, we could actually derive the formula ourselves.*0307

*We want that distance in terms of you know number of inches or number problem correct or whatever the*0321

*raw score is over instead the standard error we would just use S or if you had it you would use Sigma.*0328

*So you could think of this as the estimated Sigma and this is like the real deal Sigma.*0341

*And that is what effect size is and effect size is often symbolized by the letters D and G.*0349

*D is reserved for when you have when you have Sigma, G is used for when you use S.*0360

*Now let us talk about the roles of effect size.*0367

*The nice thing about effect size is that the N does not matter as much whether you have a small sample or large sample the effect size stays similar.*0373

*In test statistics suggest T or Z, the N matters quite a bit and let us think again about why.*0384

*So the T statistic I have been writing at so far as over standard error but let us think about what standard error is.*0396

*Standard error is S divided by the square root of N, now as N gets bigger and bigger so let us think about N getting bigger.*0406

*This whole thing in the denominator, this whole idea this whole thing becomes smaller and smaller.*0417

*And when you divide a positive or negative or positive, if you divide some distance by a small number then*0430

*you end up getting a more extreme value, more extreme.*0441

*So by more extreme I mean way more positive, more positive ,more on the positive side or way more negative.*0448

*So the T statistic is very very sensitive to N so is the Z because Z the only difference is instead of S we use Sigma.*0463

*And so the same logic applies but for effect size T and G we do not divide by square root of N so in that way N does not really have as much.*0474

*Okay so one thing to remember is if you know Sigma use covens D, if you need to estimate the standard deviation from the sample S, you want to use hedges G.*0488

*Okay so now you know what effect size is and it is nice that it is not as affected by N but why do we need it?*0500

*Well effect size is what we use, the statistically used to interpret practical significant so for instance we 0839.8 might have some sort of very small difference between group 1 and group 2 so with the males and females*0510

*on some game or task, there is a very tiny difference like you know let us just say males are ahead by .0001 points.*0527

*And practically, it sort if does not matter but if you have a large enough effect size if you have a large*0540

*enough N you could get a small enough standard error that you can make that tiny difference seem like a*0549

*big deal and you can imagine that would be sort of odd situation.*0556

*We take a difference that sort of does not matter but then make a big deal out of it because of some fancy statistics we did.*0565

*Well, that effect size is not going to be affected by N and so that going to give you more straightforward*0573

*measure of is this difference big enough for sort of just care about.*0580

*It is not going to tell you whether it was significant or not based on hypothesis testing but it can give you*0584

*the idea of practical significant and here were using the modern term for significant as in important.*0592

*It will tell you a bit practical importance not statistical outlier nests, that is how it is telling you, it is talking*0601

*about just regular old practical importance and the way you can think about this is just thinking about it as is this different worth noticing.*0614

*Is that worth even doing statistics on?*0623

*The thing about hypothesis testing is that it could be deceiving, a very large sample size can lead to a*0625

*statistically significant one of these outlier differences that we really do not care about that just has no practical significant.*0632

*So here although we have been trying to talk about this again and again trying to sort of clarify that*0641

*statistically significant does not mean important it just means it lies outside of our expectation.*0648

*It is important to realize once again that statistical significance does not equal practical significant.*0656

*This is sort of talking about how important something is and this is just sort of saying, does it stand out?*0663

*Does our X bar our sample actually stand out?*0672

*Okay now let us move on to power.*0679

*What is power?*0684

*Well, how we really needs to go back to our understanding of the two types of errors.*0685

*Remember in hypothesis testing we can make an error in two different ways.*0691

*One is the false alarm error and we set that false alarm error rate by Alpha and the other kind of error is*0695

*this incorrect decision that we can make called the miss.*0704

*A miss is when we fail to reject the hypothesis, that the null hypothesis but we should, we really should.*0708

*And that is signified by beta, by the term beta.*0717

*Now when the null hypothesis is true then we can know if we already set our probability of making*0725

*incorrect decision, just like subtraction we can figure out our probability of making a correct decision so if 1225.5 our probability is .05 in making incorrect decision, the other possibility is that we may correct decision 95%, 1-.05.*0739

*In the same way when the null hypothesis is actually false we could figure out our probability of actually*0756

*making a correct decision by just subtracting our probability of making incorrect decision from one.*0764

*So this would be one minus beta.*0772

*In that way these two decisions that we make they add up to a probability of one and this 2 decisions that we can make add up to probability of one.*0775

*But in reality only one of these worlds is true that is why they both have a probability of 1.*0787

*We just have no idea whether this one is true or this one is true and anyone can never really say but that is the philosophical question.*0794

*So given this picture, power resides here and this quadrant is what we think as power.*0802

*Now power is just the idea given that the world is actually false, that this world we live in pretend we*0811

*ignore this part right so I am just, just ignore this entire world, given that this null hypothesis is false, what*0824

*is our probability of actually rejecting the null hypothesis and that is what we call power.*0835

*So think of this as the probability of rejecting null when the null is false.*0843

*So why do we need power, why do we need 1 – beta?*0855

*Well, here it is going to come back, those concepts come right back.*0864

*Remember the idea that you know sometimes we wanted to detect some sort of disease right and we*0873

*might give a test like for instance we want to know whether someone has HIV and so we give them a blood test to figure out, do they have HIV.*0879

*Now this test are not perfect and so there is some chance that they will be able to detect the disease and some chance that will make a mistake.*0888

*There is two ways that there is two ways of thinking about this prediction.*0897

*One is what we call a positive predictive, value we could think about what is the probability that someone has the disease for instance HIV given that they test positive?*0903

*Well this will help us know what is the chance that they actually have the disease once we know their test score.*0916

*In this world we know their test scores and we want to know what is the probability that they have the disease.*0926

*On the other hand we have what is called sensitivity.*0932

*Sensitivity thinks about the world in a slightly foot way.*0936

*Given that this person has the disease, has whatever disease such as HIV, one is the probability that they will actually test positive.*0940

*And said that at these two actually give us very different world.*0950

*In one world the given is that they have a positive test and what is the probability that they have the disease versus no decease.*0954

*In this scenario the given is very different.*0967

*The given is that they actually have the disease.*0973

*Given that what is the probability that they will test positive versus negative?*0976

*And so they are looking at this or they are looking at this.*0983

*Now power is basically the probability of getting a hit, the probability of rejecting that null hypothesis given 1637.9 that the null hypothesis is actually false so it is actually wrong.*0988

*Is this more like PPV, positive predictive value?*1004

*Or is it more like sensitivity.*1010

*Well let us think about this.*1012

*In this world there is this reality that the given reality is that this is false.*1014

*We need to reject it.*1022

*What is the probability that will actually be rejected?*1027

* So reject or fail to reject.*1032

*Well one way of thinking about this in a more, in the comparison is to consider, what is this thing that we*1040

*do not know in these two scenarios?*1052

*We do not really know if they actually have HIV.*1055

*We know their test we know that their test is either positive or negative and the test is uncertain but*1059

*whether they actually have HIV or not, that does not have uncertainty, it is just that we do not know what it is.*1065

*This is sort of like HIV in that way.*1074

*This is the reality so HIV is the reality and this, this is the test results.*1078

*This is also the reality and these are the results of hypothesis testing.*1088

*And so in that way this picture is much more like sensitivity.*1101

*And really when we apply the word sensitivity we see a whole new way of looking at power.*1107

*Power is the idea how sensitive is your hypothesis test when there really is something to detect, can it detect it?*1116

*When there really is HIV, can your test detect it?*1125

*When the null hypothesis really is false, can your test detect it?*1129

*That is the question that power is asking.*1136

*Okay if you calculate power is there nice little formula for?*1139

*Well power is more like the tables in the back of your book.*1145

*You cannot like calculate with like one simple straightforward formula.*1148

*There is actually more complex formula that does not both calculus but we can simulate power for a whole*1153

*bunch of different scenarios and those scenarios all depend on outline effect size and also variability in*1161

*sample size and because of that power is often found through simulation.*1169

*So I am not going to focus on calculating power, instead I am going to try to give you a conceptual understanding power.*1174

*Now often a desired level of power and sometimes you may be working with computer programs that might calculate power for you.*1187

*A different level of power that you want to shoot for is .8 or above but I want you to know how this power interact with all this things.*1195

*All of these things actually go into the calculation of power but I want you to know what is the conceptual level.*1206

*So how does Alpha or the significance level affect power, how does affect size, D or G affect power, how*1212

*does variability S or you know, S squared affect power and how to sample size affect power.*1224

*Okay so first thing is how does Alpha affect power?*1234

*Well here in this picture, I shown you 2 distribution.*1241

*You could think of this one is the null distribution and this one as the alternative distribution.*1247

*And noticed that both of these both of these distributions up here are exactly the same down here I just copied and pasted.*1254

*The only thing that is different is not their means or the actual distribution.*1263

*The only thing that is different is the cut off.*1276

*Since here, the cut off scores right here and this is the alpha, and hear the cutoff score has been moved sort of closer towards the population mean.*1279

*And now we have a huge Alpha.*1297

*So let us just assign some numbers here.*1301

*I am just guessing that maybe that looks like alpha equals .05 that something more used to see, but this looks like maybe Alpha equals let us say .15.*1304

*What happens when we increase our Alpha?*1317

*Our Alpha has gotten bigger, what happened, what happens to power?*1323

*Well it might be helpful to think about what Power might be?*1326

*In this picture, remember, power is the probability of rejecting the null hypothesis when the null hypothesis*1331

*is actually false and here we often reject when it is more extreme than the cutoff value when your X bar is*1344

*more extreme so these are the rejections of everything on this side.*1358

*All of this stuff is reject, reject the null.*1362

*And we want to look at the distribution where the null hypothesis is false a.k.a. the alternative hypothesis.*1369

*So really were looking at this big section right here so here this big section, that is power, one minus Beta*1380

*given that you could also figure out what beta is.*1396

*And beta is our error rate for misses.*1400

*When we fail to reject, fail to reject but the alternative hypothesis is true or the other way we could say it is the null hypothesis is false.*1406

*So what happens to power when Alpha becomes bigger?*1421

*Well, let us colour in power right here and it seems like there is more of this distribution that is been colored in than this.*1430

*So this part has been sort of added on, it used to be just this equals power but now we also have added on the section.*1440

*So as Alpha increases, power also increases.*1453

*And hopefully you can see that from this picture.*1464

*Now imagine moving Alpha out this way so decreasing Alpha.*1467

*If we decreased alpha then this power portion of the distribution that power part will become smaller so*1472

*the opposite, sort of the counterpoint to this is also true as Alpha decreases, the power also decreases.*1483

*But you might be asking yourself, then why cannot we just increase alpha so we could increase power right?*1496

*Well, remember what Alpha is, alpha is your false alarm rate.*1511

*So when you increase Alpha, you also increase your false alarm rate.*1516

*So at the same time if you increase your false alarm rate your increasing power.*1521

*And so this often is not a good way to increase power.*1526

*But you should still know, with the relationship is.*1533

*How about effect size, how does effect size affect power?*1538

*Well remember, effect size is really sort of a, you can think of it roughly as this distance between the X bar and the mu.*1544

*We are really looking at that distance in terms of standard deviation of the population.*1555

*How does effect size affect power?*1561

*Here I have drawn the same pictures, same cut off except I have moved this null, this alternative*1564

*distribution a little bit out to be a more extreme so that we now have a larger distance, larger distance.*1574

*And so this is a bigger effect size, bigger effect size so what happens when we increase the effect size and*1587

*we keep everything else constant, that the cut off, the null hypothesis, everything.*1600

*Well, let us colour in this, and colour in this.*1605

*Which of these two blue areas is larger.*1612

*Obviously this one.*1616

*This power is bigger than this power and it is because we have a larger effect size so another thing we have*1618

*learned is that larger effect size it leads to larger power so as you increase effect size you could increase power but here is the kicker.*1627

*Can you increase effect size?*1646

*Can you do anything about the effect size?*1649

*Is there anything you could do?*1651

*Not really.*1655

*Effect size is something that sort of out there in the data but you cannot actually do anything to make it*1657

*bigger but you should know that if you happen to have a larger effect size then you have more power than if your study of a small effect size.*1663

*Okay so how does variability and sample size affect power?*1674

*Now the reason I put these two things together is that remember, this distribution are S Toms, right?*1686

*And so the variability in a S Tom right is actually standard error and standard error is S divided by the square root of N.*1696

*So both variability and sample size will matter in power.*1711

*And so here I want to show you how.*1720

*Okay so here I have drawn the same means of the population of the S Toms and remember here we have*1723

*the null hypothesis and the alternative hypothesis distribution.*1733

*I have drawn the same pictures down here and I kept the same Alpha about .05.*1739

*So I had to move the cut off a little just so that I could color in .05 but something has changed and that is this.*1749

*This a lot skinnier than this is, that is less variability so that S Tom has decreased in variability.*1760

*So here standard error has decreased so we have sharper S Toms.*1772

*Still normally distributed, just sharper.*1786

*And so when we look at these skinnier distribution let us look at the consequences for power.*1790

*Here lets color in power and let us color in power right here and it also helps to see what beta is.*1798

*So here we have a quite a large beta and here we have a tiny beta.*1810

*And so that makes you realize that the one minus Beta appear the power here is larger than the one minus Beta down here.*1815

*This is smaller than the 1 – beta down here because remember were talking about proportions.*1832

*This whole thing add up to 1, now this might look smaller to you, the whole thing adds up to one.*1849

*If this is a really small proportion so let us do a number on it, that was less than .05.*1855

*Let us go on .02.*1861

*This looks bigger than .05 so let us go on .08.*1863

*Then 1 - Beta here would be 92% and 1 - Beta here would be 98% so this is a larger power than this.*1869

*So one thing we have seen is our standard error decreases so it is decreasing then power increases so this is what we call a negative relationship.*1879

*As one goes down the other goes up and vice versa as standard error increases as these distribution*1899

*become fatter and fatter then power will decrease overall the opposite way.*1908

*Now because we already know this about standard error we could actually say something about sample*1913

*size because sample size actually has the opposite it also has a negative relationship with standard error*1921

*and sample size go get bigger and bigger and bigger standard error gets smaller and smaller and smaller*1929

*and so sample size actually have a positive relationship with power so as sample size increases and*1936

*therefore standard error decreases, power increases.*1947

*And so we could figure that out just by reasoning through what standard error really mean.*1954

*Okay so how do we increase power because often times your power or sensitivity is really a good thing.*1965

*We want to be able to have experiments and studies that have a lot of power that would be a good hypothesis testing adventure to embark on.*1976

*How do we actually increase it.*1987

*Well can we just do this by changing Alpha?*1989

*Well the problem with this is that you get some consequences namely that falls alarms increase.*1994

*So if you increase power with this strategy you are also going to increase false alarm, that is very dangerous so that is not something we want to do.*2010

*That is type 1 error so that is something we do not want to do.*2020

*So you do not want to change power by changing Alpha although that is something under our control.*2023

*Now we could try to change effect size but because of effect size is something that is already sort of true in*2029

*the world right like what we have to do to mess with standard error of the standard deviation of the*2039

*population, we cannot mess with that so this is actually something that is impossible to do.*2045

*So that is one thing that we wish we could do but cannot do anything about.*2052

*Can we change the variability in our sample, can we change the variability?*2067

*Indirectly, we can.*2072

*There is really one way to be able to change standard error.*2075

*Can we do this by changing the standard deviation of the population?*2081

*No, we cannot do that, that is out of our control.*2085

*But we can change N.*2090

*We can collect more data instead of having 40 subjects or cases in our study, we can have 80.*2093

*And in that way we can increase our power and so really the one thing that sort of one tool that sort of*2102

*available to us as researchers in order to affect power is really affecting sample size.*2110

*None of these other things are really that appealing to us.*2116

*We cannot change population variability, we cannot change effect size and if we change Alpha then that is a dangerous option.*2120

*And so what we have left here is affecting sample size.*2133

*Now let us go on to some examples.*2139

*Statistical test is designed with a significance level of .05 sample size of 100.*2144

*As similar test of the same null hypothesis is designed with a significant level of .1 and a sample size of 100.*2149

*If the null hypothesis is false which test has greater power?*2160

*Okay so let us think about this.*2165

*Here we have a situation one test one where Alpha equals .05.*2168

*Test 2 the other test, alpha = .10 so here Alpha is larger.*2178

*Remember alpha is moving that critical test statistic so we have taken this and let us have this Alpha right*2190

*here and what we do is we moved it over, moved it over here, well not that far but just so you can get the idea.*2205

*And now our Alpha is much bigger but what we see is that our beta, our 1 - Beta has also gotten a lot bigger.*2217

*So here we see that power increases but we should also note that now we have a higher tolerance for false*2231

*alarms so we will also have more false alarm, will have more times when we reject the null period so we*2244

*will reject the null lots of time sometimes will be right, sometimes will be wrong, both of this things increase.*2251

*Example 2.*2258

*Suppose the medical researcher was to test the claim of the pharmaceutical company that the mean number of side effects per patient for new drug is 6.*2261

*The researcher is pretty sure the true number of side effects is between 8 and 10 so there like*2270

*pharmaceutical company not telling the whole truth.*2277

*Shows a random sample of patients reporting side effects and chooses the 5% level of significance so Alpha equals .05.*2281

*Is the power of the test larger is the true number of side effects is 8 or 10.*2288

*So let us sort of think about okay what is the question really asking and then explain.*2295

*So is the true number of side effects is 8 or 10 is really talking about your mu?*2302

*And actually, here we are talking about the alternative mu because the null mu is probably going to be six.*2309

*So here is the null hypothesis.*2325

*The null hypothesis is that the pharmaceutical company is telling the truth.*2330

*So the null hypothesis mu is six.*2334

*Now, if the alternative mu is 8, it will be, maybe about here but if the real alternative population is actually*2337

*a 10, so the other alternative, a 10, it is way out here.*2350

*And which of these scenarios is the power larger.*2359

*Well even if we set a very conservative critical test statistic, here is our power for 8 as is the true number of*2365

*side effects but here is the power almost 100% for 10 being the true number of side effects and remember*2382

*I am just trying these with just some standard error I do not care what it is just have to be the same across all of them.*2395

*And so here we see that wow, it is way out farther, more of this is going to be covered when we reject the null.*2402

*And so we see that the power is larger, is the true number of side effects is 10.*2413

*And the reason for that is because this is really a question about effect size.*2420

*The true certain distance between our null hypothesis distribution and our alternative hypothesis distribution.*2428

*We know that as effect size goes up power also goes up easier to detect but we cannot do anything we cannot actually make effect size bigger.*2440

*Example 3.*2455

*Why are both the Z and T statistic affected by N while Colens D and hedges G are not then what do the Z,*2458

*T, D and G all have in common and finally, what commonality does Z and D share.*2469

*What commonality does T and G share?*2478

*Well, I am going to draw this as sort of Ben diagram.*2481

*So let me draw Z here and here, I will drop T and then here I will draw D and it is going to get crazy, here I will draw G.*2484

*Now, if it helps, you might want to think about what these guys mean over the actual population, standard*2511

*deviation over the standard error derived from the population standard deviation.*2523

*And here we have standard error derived from the derived from the estimated population standard*2538

*deviation whereas in D we have the distance, same distance, here just divided by Sigma, here we have the same distance divided by S.*2547

*Okay so why are both the Z and T statistic affected by N while Colens D and Hedges G are not?*2570

*Well, the thing that these two have in common is that these are about standard error and standard error is*2579

*either Sigma divided by square root of N or S divided by square root of N and it is this dividing by square*2587

*root of N that makes these two so affected by N.*2602

*And so it is really because they are distances in terms of standard error.*2607

*So when do the Z, T, D and G all have in common so that is that is the little guy right here, what do they all have in common?*2614

*Well they all have this thing in common.*2627

*So they are all about the distance between sample and population.*2629

*So it is all about that distance.*2641

*Some of them are in terms of standard error and some of them are in terms of population standard deviation.*2644

*So what commonality does Z and D share.*2651

*Well that going to be right in here.*2656

*What do they have in common, they both rely on actually having Sigma.*2658

*T and G both rely only on the sample estimate of the population standard deviation.*2663

*So looks a little messy but hopefully this makes a little more sense.*2671

*Thanks for using educator.com for effect size and power.*2676

So how different is g and d from z.. I am getting a bit confused here..
