Showing Table of the Crude and Standardized Death Rates of the Populations a and B
Age groups


Under 102000060012000372
10 - 201200024030000660

40 - 6030000105015000525
Above 60100005003000180


From the given data, the crude death rate for any population is

For population A

For population B

The standardized death rate is

Where pxs = population of standard group of x and Dx = Age specific death rate of group x.

Question 43

Describe in Detail


Following data gives the diameter of the rings manufactured by a company. Obtain the Control limits for R-chart.

Sample is Given with Observations
Sample No.Observations


From the tables, for n = 10, we have , ,

Control limits for :

5.01 + 0.0354 = 5.045

And 5.01 + 0.0354 = 4.97

Sample is Given with Observations – X Bar Chart

chart shows the process is out of control.

Control limits for R chart :

= (0.223) (0.115) = 0.0256

Sample is Given with Observations – R Chart

R chart shows the process is under control.

Describe in Detail


For a PBIB design with parameters , b, r, k, , show that


A PBIB design with m associate classes based on the association scheme is an arrangement of treatments into b blocks such that

(i) Each block contains k distinct treatments (k <

(ii) Each treatment occurs in r blocks

(iii) Any two treatments, which are ith associates occur together in blocks (i = 1,2, . . , m) are called the parameters of the PBIB …

Describe in Detail


Discus symmetrical BIBD. For an SBIBD , under usual notations, show that



Symmetrical BIBD:

A BIBD is said to be symmetric if b = υ and r = k.

υ, r, b, k and λ are called the parameters of the BIBD

υ = number of varities or treatments

b = number of blocks

r = number of replicates for each treatment

k = block size

λ = number of blocks in which any pair of treatments occurs together

Proof: =

Let N be the incident matrix of a SBIB…

Describe in Detail


Discuss how you would proceed with the analysis if data on one plot is missing in a Latin Square design.


To analysis the data of a Latin square design having missing values, we first estimate the missing value by minimizing the error mean square and the rest missing values by guess estimate which is generally the mean of all available values. The estimated value of x is obtain by to minimize the error variance, differentiate the expression for it with…
