Which statistical test will most likely be used and why?

* Matched pairs t-test: 1 nominal + 1 interval, linked
Husbands & wives: 1 nominal (2 non-inedependent groups)
Glucose ratio data: 1 interval


* Chi-square test: 2 nominal (2x3)
1 nominal: Call sick VS. didn’t call sick
1 nominal: 3 different shifts (3 groups)


* Pearson correlation: 2 interval
1 interval: study time in hours
1 interval: test scores


* t-test: 1 nominal + 1 interval
1 nominal: Same-sex siblings VS non same-sex siblings (2 groups)
1 interval: testosterone levels


* Two-way ANOVA: 1 interval + 2 nominal
1 interval: time (faster VS not faster)
1 nominal: trained VS not trained
1 nominal; vacutianer VS standard syringe

* Chi-Square:  2 nominal
1 nominal: margarine VS butter

* One-way ANOVA: 1 nominal + 1 interval
1 nominal: efficacy of qx in 3 groups (radical mastectomy VS radiation VS no tx)
1 interval: quality of life measured on a 10 point scale.


*Chi-square: 2 nominals
1 nominal: pass VS fail
1 nominal: 3 test sites (3 groups)


* One-way ANOVA: 1 nominal + 1 interval
