How to Run a Two-Sample T-Test in SigmaXL

What’s a Two-Sample T-Test?

The Two-Sample T-Test is a hypothesis test that determines whether a statistically significant difference exists between the averages of two independent sets of normally distributed continuous data. It is useful for determining if a particular strata or group could provide insight into the root cause of process issues.

An example would be if Location A has average sales of $3,567 per month whereas Location B has average sales of $3,843 per month and you want to determine if Location B truly has greater averages sales or the difference is just due to random chance.
