Question

A random sample of 56 households was selected for a phone survey. The key question asked was, "Do you or any member of your household own a product from Company A?" of the 56 respondents, 42 say yes and 14 said no.

A. determine the same population, p, of households that own a Company A product.

B. If the population proportion is 0.75, determine the standard error of the proportion.

a. p =

Answer #1

A) sample proportion of households that own a Company A product

(P) =

Where

( x= 42 ) is the households that own a Company A product.

(n= 56) is the sample size.

P= = 0.75

**P** **= 0.75**

B) Standard error of proportion

=

Where p= 0.75 , n =56

0.0578637562

**0.0579**

A research agency conducted a survey on randomly selected 2000 Malaysian adults aged 18 and over regarding weight issue. These adults were asked if they want to lose weight and 63% said yes.
i) Construct a 97% confidence interval for the corresponding population proportion.
ii) Find the minimum sample size if the research agency wants to be sure that the margin of error is within 0.04 of the population proportion for a 97% confidence interval. The preliminary estimate for the...

A survey of 200 students is selected randomly on a large
university campus. They are asked if they use a laptop in class to
take notes. Suppose that based on the survey, 120 of the 200
students responded "yes." a) What is the value of the sample
proportion ModifyingAbove p with caret? b) What is the standard
error of the sample proportion? c) Construct an approximate 95%
confidence interval for the true proportion p by taking plus or
minus 2...

A survey conducted in July 2015 asked a random sample of
American adults whether they had ever used online dating (either an
online dating site or a dating app on their cell phone). 18-to
24-year-olds The survey included 194 young adults (ages 18 to 24 )
and 53 of them said that they had used online dating. If we use
this sample to estimate the proportion of all young adults to use
online dating, the standard error is 0.032 ....

A random sample of 45 households was selected as part of a study
on electricity usage., and the number of kilowatt-hours (kWh) was
recoded for each household. The average usage was found to be 375
kWh. The population standard deviation is given as 51 KWh Assuming
the usage is normally distributed, find the margin of error for a
99% confidence interval for the mean. [3 marks] 12.5 14.9 19.6

A random sample of 258 cell phone users ages 20 to 39
were asked if they use their cell phones to stay connected while
they are in bed. The same question was asked of each person in a
sample of 129 cell phone users ages 40 to 49. The survey found that
168 of the 258 people in the sample between the ages of 20 to 39
years old and 61 of the 129 people in the sample between the...

A polling organization conducted a statewide survey concerning
the race for governor. In a random phone number survey, 400
registered voters responded. It was found that 230 would vote for
the Democratic candidate. Let p represent the proportion of
registered voters in the state that would vote for the Democratic
candidate. Assume the sample of respondents is equivalent to a
random sample from the population of registered voters in the
state.
1. Calculate the standard error for the estimate of...

Sample surveys on sensitive issues can give different results
depending on how the question is asked. A University of Wisconsin
study divided 2400 respondents into 3 groups at random. All were
asked if they had ever used cocaine. One group of 800 was
interviewed by phone; 158 said they had used cocaine. Another 800
people were asked the question in a one-on-one personal interview;
199 said "Yes." The remaining 800 were allowed to make an anonymous
written response; 233 said...
