DISCUSSION ABOUT STATISTICAL ANALYSIS AND RESULTS;

Statistical analysis two independent sample tests compare the mean of the randomised case-control group. To find the significant difference between the two groups, data collections are mean value, so t test is the suitable test to compare the mean value of the two groups in normal distributed data (Menz, 2004). Result of the t test shows body mass index significant p value .005 less than .05 and the mean value of the BMI in case group greater than control group. The null hypothesis rejected, there is a significant difference in the two groups in body mass index.

Foot posture index shows p value .004 less than .05 and again the mean value of FPI in case group higher than the control group. In this case also null hypotheses are rejected and show the significant difference between two groups. Two independent sample t tests shows greater significant difference, it states that two group as difference in the body mass and foot mass index. This supports the hypotheses being tested by the researcher. Participants with chronic plantar heel pain case group should differ from the control group in obesity and pronated foot to support that, these two factors may be the risk factor for chronic plantar heel pain.

Standing heel raise test shows p value .050 greater than .05 the null hypothesis is accepted and there is no significant difference between the two groups regarding this test and shows the negativity of the hypothesis being tested .Standing heel test indicates the endurance of the calf muscle, the test result shows that there is no difference in the calf muscle strength between the two groups. Researches as taken data based on the limb affected more by pain but in the outcome meas...

...te the foot is pronated. Author justifies that pronated foot will increase the dorsiflexion.Thereis no linear relation found between the ankle dorsiflexion and the chronic heel pain. This correlates the foot posture and the dorsiflexion range of motion, but in the chi-square test it shows the independence of the two variables. Previous study as found the association between the ankle dorsiflexion and strain on the plantar fascia, author determines research requires finding association of the increase in translation of the tibia straining the plantar fascia.

Randomised case control study cannot be taken as a causation, authors explains that accuracy in the case analyse was low as more variables could be included. Authors suggest further research to determine the other hypothesed causative factors for case accuracy. Author had no competing interest.

635 Words | 3 PagesTesting Assumptions There are two histograms, showing information on GPA, and showing information on final grade. Histograms are commonly used with interval or ratio level data (Corty, 2007). The data in the GPA is distributed and slightly skewed to the right, which means it has a positive skew and has a peaked distribution. The final histogram also has a leptokurtic frequency distribution, but is skewed to the left meaning this has a negative skew. Descriptive Statistics N Minimum Maximum Mean Std.

## Perception of Body Size in Patients with Anorexia Nervosa

904 Words | 4 PagesThey had a particular interest on how anxiety may have influence on anorexia nervosa patient’s perception of their body image. Øverås et al. suggested patients, who suffer from anorexia nervosa, would overestimate their body size more than the healthy control group. They also proposed that patients would overestimate their body size more in the perception of their body than basing off their views from memory. Body image dissatisfaction in anorexia nervosa is separated into three subcategories: dissatisfaction with one's body; overestimation of own body size; and self-worth influences one’s perception of body weight (American Psychiatric Association, 2000).

## Two Point Discrimination Test

762 Words | 4 PagesIt is important to note that the size of the receptive field generally decreases in correlation to higher innervations. As was seen in the retinal receptive fields, the peripheries of tissue had contained larger receptive fields (Hartline, 1940). In our test we hypothesized that the finger region will be able to discriminate better than the forearm. This means that they will be much more innervated with neurons than the forearm, and likewise contain smaller receptive fields. This also means that convergence is closer to a 1:1 ratio, and is less the case the farther from the fingers we go.

Three types of quality characteristics are used in Taguchi technique namely, larger the better, smaller the better and nominal the better for evaluating the response[41]. The obtained results from the experiments were converted into Signal to Noise (S/N) ratio which was used to measure the deviation of quality characteristics of testing parameters values from the desired values. The lower-the-better quality characteristic was considered to obtain the optimal testing parameters because wear is an undesirable one and needs to be minimized.

## The Ljung Box Test

1720 Words | 7 PagesThe Ljung-Box test is a test for serial correlation that tests if the autocorrelation coefficients for a given number of lags are jointly not significantly different from zero. The statistic for this test is where T is the sample size, m is the number of lags and is the estimated autocorrelation coefficient. The null hypothesis for this test is that the coefficients are all jointly zero and has a distribution. The alternative hypothesis is that at least one of the coefficients is not equal to zero and implies the presence of serial correlation. We can estimate the Ljung-Box statistic in Eviews by creating a correlogram for the series rlsp500.

## Obesity is Not a Disease

1189 Words | 5 PagesIf the result is 30 or greater, the individual is considered obese. The BMI has a strong correlation with excess body fat, but does not directly measure it, making it an inaccurate assessment of health. Most people with a high BMI have no impairments and have no problems functioning on a day to day basis. In some extreme cases, a large quantity of excess fat can reduce mobility, but this is hardly the case for most obese individuals. With obesity rarely causing any sort of impairment in normal functioning it does not meet the standards of being a disease.

## Evaluating The Appropriateness And Thoroughness Of The Data Analysis Procedures

1015 Words | 5 PagesThe authors used the mean as the central tendency which seems appropriate because logically people who weigh different amounts are going to lose weight proportionally. There is also a level of thoroughness that is evident by preforming the statistical analysis at multiple intervals. Had the authors only compared baseline to 12 months they could have missed a trend such as the change in total cholesterol. There was a decrease in total cholesterol at 3 and 6 months but by 12 months it was almost similar to baseline. h. Evaluate the discussion of results and the conclusions of the study.

## Malnutrition in Haemodialysis Patients

1430 Words | 6 PagesHence, use of sensitive identifying assessment method and early intervention on malnourished patients are quite meaningful. Malnutrition and mortality in haemodialysis patients Characteristics of haemodialysis patients are described as they have greater survive when they had a higher serum creatinine concentration or higher BMI which stand for larger body size or greater muscle mass. An increase of dry weight with muscle mass gaining correlates to the greatest survival. On the other hand, weight loss with loss of muscle mass results the worst mortality. Additionally, gain in muscle mass with weight loss was advantaged on higher survival in comparison with loss of muscle mass with weight gain (Kalantar-Zadeh et al., 2010).

(2002, as cited by Wells & Siervo, 2011). These various approaches by previous researchers alongside this experiment although all with their various limitations have contributed to greater knowledge towards the field as a whole. The investigation found that there was no significant difference in the percentage carbohydrate intake of active or inactive groups and therefore the null hypothesis was accepted. As obesity is a global epidemic that researchers all over the world are striving to gain more understanding and knowledge about in order to improve the health of individuals, there are still the many limitations such as the few mentioned above.

Therefore, skewness measures the degree and direction of asymmetry. A symmetric spreading such as a normal distribution has a skewness of 0, and a distribution that is skewed to the left. In this study the skewness is negative value.
