The problem is that the 511 original data points are structured, and the state-level errors are correlated. It is overly optimistic to say that we have 511 independent data points. Instead, we model yi = β0 + Xi1 β1 + Xi2 β2 + · · · + Xik βk + ηt[i] + δr[i],t[i] + i , for i = 1, . . 2) where t[i] is a indicator for time (election year), and r[i] is an indicator for the region of the country (Northeast, Midwest, South, or West), and n = 511 is the number of state-years used to fit the model. For each election year, ηt is a nationwide error and the δr,t ’s are four independent regional errors.

Under the null hypothesis, the probability of a candidate receiving votes is independent of the time of each vote, and thus the 2 × 6 table of votes including or excluding each candidate would be consistent with the model of independence. ) We can then compute for each 2 6 candidate a χ2 statistic, j=1 t=1 (observedjt − expectedjt )2 /expectedjt , and 2 compare to a χ distribution with (6−1) × (2−1) = 5 degrees of freedom. 26 BASIC PROBABILITY AND STATISTICS 2 Unlike the usual application of χ testing, in this case we are looking for unexpectedly low values of the χ2 statistic (and thus p-values close to 1), which would indicate vote proportions that have suspiciously little variation over time.

7, the values of yi1 , yi2 , . . , yi6 for Earl Coppin are 55, 51, . . ) We then compute pit = yit /nt for t = 1, . . , 6, the proportion of the votes received by candidate i at each stage. The test statistic for candidate i is then the sample standard deviation of these six values pi1 , . . , pi6 , Ti = sd6t=1 pit , a measure of the variation in his or her votes over time. 3. The theoretical distribution of the test statistic if the null hypothesis were true. Under the null hypothesis, the six subsets of the election are simply six different random samples of the voters, with a proportion πi who would vote for candidate i.
