Question

The body mass index (BMI) of a person is the person’s weight divided by the square of his or her height. It is an indirect measure of the person’s body fat and an indicator of obesity. Results from surveys conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) showed that the estimated mean BMI for US adults increased from 25.0 in the 1960–1962 period to 28.1 in the 1999–2002 period. [Source: Ogden, C., et al. (2004). Mean body weight, height, and body mass index, United States 1960–2002. Advance Data from Vital and Health Statistics, No. 347.]

Suppose you are a health researcher. You conduct a hypothesis test to determine whether the mean BMI of US adults in the current year is lower than the mean BMI of US adults in 2000. Assume that the mean BMI of US adults in 2000 was 28.1 (the population mean). You obtain a sample of BMI measurements of 1,034 US adults, which yields a sample mean of M = 28.9.

Let μ denote the mean BMI of US adults in the current year. Formulate your null and alternative hypotheses by selecting the appropriate values in the blue dropdown menus that follow.

Answer #1

**ACCORDING TO QUESTION , THE NULL AND ALTERNATIVE
HYPOTHESES ARE :**

**H _{0} :**

**H _{1} : BMI of US adults in the current year is
lower than the mean BMI of US adults in 2000. ,
< 28.1 .**

**And , the test to be conducted is z test for single
sample . where n = 1034 > 30 .**

**so , Z = { (xbar -
)/ (/sqrt(n)
) } .**

**I HOPE I WAS HELPFUL AND HAVE CLEARED YOUR
DOUBTS.**

Your body mass index (BMI) is your weight in kilograms divided
by the square of your height in meters. High BMI is a common but
controversial indicator of overweight or obesity. A study by the
National Center for Health Statistics found that the BMI of
American young men (ages 20-29) is approximately Normal with mean
25.8 and standard deviation 4.2. To have a BMI higher than 90% of
all men aged 20-29, what would your BMI would need to be?

BMI (Body Mass Index) is your weight in kilograms divided by the
square of your height in meters. BMI for women is approximately
Normal with mean 26.8 and standard deviation 7.4;
If you wanted to classify the bottom 15% of all women as
underweight and top 15% of all women as “obese” what BMI indices
would you need to separate these two categories?

Write a modular program that calculates and displays a person’s
body mass index (BMI). The BMI is often used to determine whether a
person is overweight or underweight for his or her height. A
person’s BMI is calculated with the following formula
BMI = weight * 703/height2
Where weight is measured in pounds and height is measured in
inches. The program should ask the user to enter his or her weight
and height and then display the user’s BMI. The...

The Body Mass Index (BMI) is a value calculated based on the
weight and the height of an individual. In a small European city, a
survey was conducted one year ago to review the BMI of the
citizens. In the sample with 200 citizens, the mean BMI was 23.3
kg/m2 and standard deviation was 1.5 kg/m2. It is reasonable to
assume the BMI distribution is a normal distribution.

The following are body mass index (BMI) scores measured in 9
patients who are free of diabetes and participating in a study of
risk factors for obesity. Body mass index is measured as the ratio
of weight in kilograms to height in meters squared.

(13 points) You will use information about the body
mass index (BMI) variable for the sample of adolescent girls to
perform a hypothesis test. You will test the claim that the mean
BMI for all adolescent girls is 21.0.
The null hypothesis is H0 : µ = 21.0. State the

1.Investigators studied the relationship between screen time
(measured in hours/week) and body-mass-index, BMI=wt/ht^2
(wt=weight in kg and ht=height in meters), in men age 25 -45 .
They surveyed 6234 U.S. men in this age group, the scatter diagram
for the data was homoscedastic and the BMI data was approximately
normally distributed both unconditionally and in each vertical
strip.
The investigators generated the following summary
statistics:
X=35 SDX=12
Y=27 SDY=6 r=0.8
where X=hours of screen-time per week, and Y=BMI.

The CDC publishes charts on Body Mass Index (BMI) for boys and
girls of different ages. Based on the chart for girls, the mean BMI
for 6-year-old girls is listed as 15.6 kg/m2. The data from which
the CDC charts were developed is old and there is concern that the
mean BMI for 6 year olds girls has increased. The BMI’s from a
current random sample of 30 6-year-old girls is attached in a list
on the next page. Use...
