Independent Sample t-Test: When, How and Why

Independent Sample t-Test: When, How and Why

This post will review a study published in the literature, and follow the steps to replicate the results using an independent samples t-test and calculating the effect size of the difference. The post will focus on the syntax to reproduce this example in R, however the dataset and syntax to run Β this example in stata will be linked.

I will follow the following steps, the objective is not only to understand how to run an independent samples t-test in R but also to understand why and when run this type of analysis. The steps will be as follows:

  1. Understanding the claims made in a research paper
  2. Think through the analysis that one needs to do to support this claims
  3. Replicate the results using a real dataset in R
