Question

From a SRS of 1000 registered voters in the U.S., 75% said that they planned to vote in the next national election. Find a 95% confidence interval estimate for the population proportion of registered voters in the United States who plan to vote in the next general election.

a) Find the margin of error

b) Construct the endpoints of the interval

c) Write the interval

Answer #1

Solution :

Given that,

Point estimate = sample proportion = = 0.75

1 - = 1 - 0.75 = 0.25

Z/2 = Z0.025 = 1.96

a) Margin of error = E = Z / 2 * (( * (1 - )) / n)

= 1.96 (((0.75 * 0.25) / 1000)

= 0.013

A 95% confidence interval for population proportion p is ,

± E

0.75 ± 0.013

(0.737 , 0.763)

A. One can be 90% confident that thepopulation proportion of registered voters in the United States who plan to vote in the next general election is between 0.737 and 0.763

A random sample of registered voters were asked about an issue
on the ballot of an upcoming election. The proportion of those
surveyed who plan to vote "Yes" on the issue is 0.54 , with a
margin of error of 0.06 . Construct a confidence interval for the
proportion of registered voters that plan to vote "Yes" on the
issue.

In a random sample of 212 potential voters registered in the
state of Florida, 80 indicated that they planned to vote in the
next general election. In an independently chosen, random sample of
237 potential voters registered in Kentucky, 69 indicated that they
planned to vote in the next general election. Can we conclude, at
the 0.01 level of significance, that the proportion p 1 of all
potential voters in Florida who plan to vote is greater than the
proportion...

In a recent poll, 134 registered voters who planned to
vote in the next election were asked if they would vote for a

would. We wish to predict the proportion of people who will vote
for this candidate in the election.
