Question

A study in Pediatric Emergency Care compared the injury severity between younger and older children. One measure reported was the Injury Severity Score (ISS). The standard deviation of ISS’s for 37 children 8 years or younger was 23.9, and the standard deviation for 36 children older than 8 years was 6.8. Assume that ISS’s are normally distributed for both age groups. At the 0.01 level of significance, is there sufficient reason to conclude that the standard deviation of ISS’s for younger children is larger than the standard deviation of ISS’s for older children?
