    A study was conducted of the annual incomes of beginning probation officers in metropolitan areas of less than 100,000 population and in metropolitan areas having more than 500,000 population.

    Some sample statistics:

    Population less Population more
    Sample statistic than 100,000 than 500,000
    Sample size 45
    Sample mean $21,290 $21,330
    Sample standard
    deviation $1,060

    Test the statement that the annual incomes of beginning probation officers in areas having more than 500,000 population are significantly greater than those paid in areas of less than 100,000. Use the 5 percent level of risk.

    It is suggested that a systematic approach be followed by stating the null and alternate hypotheses, the statistical test to be used, and so on.
