How do you differentiate between equal and unequal variances when conducting a t-test for comparing two populations?

• Statistics -

You might look into the differences between parametric tests and nonparametric tests. Parametric tests assume that variances within groups are the same. Nonparametric tests do not require those same variance assumptions.
