- Explain why the point estimate in #3 is a statistic? What is it a random variable?
- Construct and interpret a 90% confidence interval for the proportion of adult Americans who believe it is the responsibility of the federal government to make sure all Americans have healthcare coverage.
- Name two things that might be done to increase the precision of the confidence interval?

Answer #1
