2015 NBA Attendance Analysis
Now that the NBA regular season is in the books, let's take a look at how home attendance has changed (or not changed) over the last two seasons using the NBA attendance numbers from ESPN. So specifically I want to know if average regular season home attendance has changed from the 2013/14 season to the 2014/15 season statistically. I choose to use a t-test (assuming unequal variance) in NBA teams average home regular season attendance. What I find is exactly what I found previously, and that is that NBA average home regular season attendance has not changed in a statistical sense. In this case, the value of the t-test for NBA average home regular season attendance between the two seasons is 0.215, which is greater than generally accepted confidence level of 0.05. Hence, I conclude that NBA average home regular season attendance in the 2014/15 season is statistically no different than in the 2013/14 season.
