Abstract

This work discusses how two sample t-tests behave when applied to data that may violate the classical statistical assumptions of independence, heteroscedasticity and Gaussianity. The usual two sample t-statistic based on a pooled variance estimate and the Welch-Aspin statistic are treated in detail. Practical "rules-of-thumb" are given along with their applications to various examples so that readers will easily be able to use such tests on their own data sets.
