Statistics: Hypothesis Testing – #29538


Question: A medical informatics manager reviews sick day use in her department. She identifies that employees in her small department used the following amount of sick time in the past year:

Men: 5,10,2,0,6,4,5,15

Women: 8,9,3,5,0,4,15

The statistician indicated she should use a nonparametric test to determine if there is a difference in sick time use between the men and women in her department. Use the 5-step approach to hypothesis testing and alpha=0.05 to determine if there is a difference.
