The accompanying two-way table was constructed using data in the article “Television Viewing and Physical Fitness in Adults” (Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 1990: 315–320). The author hoped to determine whether time spent watching television is associated with cardiovascular fitness. Subjects were asked about their television-viewing habits and were classified as physically fit if they scored in the excellent or very good category on a step test. We include MINITAB output from a chi-squared analysis. The four TV groups corresponded to different amounts of time per day spent watching TV (0, 1–2, 3–4, or 5 or more hours). The 168 individuals represented in the first column were those judged physically fit. Expected counts appear below observed counts, and MINITAB displays the contribution to from each cell.

A statistic is an unbiased estimator of a parameter when (a) the statistic is calculated from a random sample. (b) in a single sample, the value of the statistic is equal to the value of the parameter. (c) in many samples, the values of the statistic are very close to the value of the parameter. (d) in many samples, the values of the statistic are centered at the value of the parameter. (e) in many samples, the distribution of the statistic has a shape that is approximately Normal
