“How can we measure the difference between two sample populations?”

 

As Engineers and Social/Natural Scientists, we often like to measure the differences between sample populations. However, how can we know how far apart they truly are and whether or not these sample populations are representative of the entire population? Well, what if we were to measure the difference between their median values and then divide that by difference of their standard distributions? This is known as the T-Test and is used to quantify two population’s difference and its measurement accuracy.
