Hello!
I would like to ask the list a question, as I could not find the
answer in online material as well as several books.
I do have summary data (mean, standard deviation and sample size n)
and want to analyze this data.
The summary data is supposed to be from a normal distribution.
I need the following calculations on this summary data (no, I do not
have the original data):
- one sample t-test against a known mu
- two sample t-test
- analysis of variance between 4 groups.
I would appreciate any help available.
One possible solution could be to simulate the data using rnorm with
the appropriate n, mu and sd, but I don't know if there would be a
more accurate solution.
thanks in advance
