### Get the new variance of the data [duplicate]

I got an initial mean $\mu_1$ and std $\sigma_1$ by sampling samples, these samples are generated by an unknown distribution and later I drop these samples. Then I sampled some samples and got the ...

### Getting a combined variance, given two variances [duplicate]

I'm getting two error variance values from two third-party sensors, and need to multiply these variances with the position state estimates of the target they're tracking. Once that's done, the ...

### How do I determine the variance of a collection of groups? [duplicate]

I’m trying to compute the variance of how much pumpkins weigh across pumpkins from 125 farms. However, I only have, for each farm, three pieces of data: (1) the variance of weights for pumpkins from ...

### Pooling variance of two samples with sample means and sample variance [duplicate]

I am new to this so I don't have enough reputation to comment on the original post here. I have a similar problem with equal weighting, and have n = m = 3. I believe this means I need to use sample ...

### How do I test whether means are equal when I have summary stats for 2 samples from one population and for 1 sample from a second? [duplicate]

I think this is a "meta-analysis" situation. I've got 3 samples (from 3 studies); I've assumed that two are from population A (treatment A) and one is from population B (treatment B). I have the ...

### Combining results of two samples to find combined standard deviation

I was making an attempt to solve the following problem sets, however, my answer 15.913 seemed quite different from that in the answer key 16.84. I have checked my answer a few times and re-doing the ...

### Inverse-variance weighting

I'm writing a Bachelor Thesis in engineering an a small part of it has two deal with assigning weights to independent measurements. This is from the thesis: I am pretty sure that what equations (3.23)...

### How does one go about determining the standard deviation of an entire sample data set?

I have frequently been faced with analyzing csv files that are limited in length to approximately 32,000 records in length (overflows at 32,768, from signed integer limits on a 16 bit wide data bus). ...

### How to calculate 'weighted' pooled/composite statistics for two given groups given group statistics

I have two sets of independent samples from the same distribution. For each, I have calculated sample weighted mean (u1, u2) sample weighted std deviation (d1, d2) sample weighted std error (e1, e2) ...

### Proof to obtain pooled variance equation [closed]

I was checking the definition of pooled variance, and although I think it makes sense intuitively, I was wondering how can one obtain that estimator. For the case of only one group, I understand the ...

### Variance of subsample

Total sample = subsample 1 + subsample 2 I have the mean and variance of the total sample and subsample 1. I have n for total, subsample 1, and subsample 2. I can calculate the mean of subsample 2 ...
