  • Chi-Square Distribution

    Does anybody have some decent sample problems for the Chi-Square distribution? It's listed in the syllabus, but doesn't seem to be mentioned in either the Bean Text or the ASM Manual.

    On another note entirely, are statistics available anywhere regarding exam results? (As in, number of examinees, and a breakdown of scores?) Or are these stored deep within the hidden vaults of the SOA?

    There should be plenty of samples of the Chi-squared distribution available on the web. Just Google for it.

    Scores are not made public, either for individuals or in total. However the SOA publishes statistics on the exams and posts it on their website. They give the # of candidates, the # of effective (better than a score of 0) candidates, and the number of passers, by exam.

        Chi-square

        Please take a look at ASM manual errata:
        http://www.math.ilstu.edu/krzysio/P-Manual-Errata.pdf
        there is a discussion of chi-square there. Also, I posted a practice test on it:
        http://www.math.ilstu.edu/krzysio/4-9-5-KO-Exercise.pdf
        Those two contain crucial properties of chi-square that you should remember.

        Yours most sincerely,

          Excellent! I had not looked at the errata in a month or so, that and the sample should prove most helpful.

          Many thanks,
