Consequently, the test of the hypothesis H0: Pk = Pt against H A: Pk oF Pt may be carried out by comparing the value of t = (Pk - Pt)/({J2i k)1/2 to the upper and lower critical values of a t-distribution with T - K degrees of freedom. More general tests of a single linear hypothesis may also be conducted using the t-distribution. 5 Confidence Intervals The test statistics developed above can be used to construct interval estimates and confidence regions for general linear hypotheses. For a general discussion of interval estimates see, for example , Hogg and Craig (1970).
