Question

Publishing scientific papers online is fast, and the papers can be long. Publishing in a paper journal means that the paper will live forever in libraries. The British Medical Journal combines the two: it prints short and readable versions, with longer versions available online. Is this OK with authors? The journal asked a random sample of 96 of its recent authors several questions. One question was "Should the journal continue using this system?" In the sample, 75 said "Yes". Recall, critical values of Z* are found in Table C, except for the one at the 97% confidence level which has a Z*=2.170. Solving the problem step by step, find the following values (±0.0001). The sample proportion of authors answering "Yes": p^ = __ The standard error of p^ : __ For a 95 % confidence level for the proportion of all authors that would say "Yes" if asked, the margin of error is __ , and the confidence interval is __⩽p⩽.__ |

Answer #1

Solution :

Given that,

Point estimate = sample proportion = = x / n = 75 / 96 = 0.7813

1 - = 1 - 0.7813 = 0.2187

Z/2 = Z0.015 = 2.170

= [p( 1 - p ) / n] = [(0.7813 * 0.2187) / 96 ] = 0.0422

Margin of error = E = Z / 2 *

= 2.170 * 0.0422

= 0.0916

A 97% confidence interval for population proportion p is ,

- E < p < + E

0.7813 - 0.0916 < p < 0.7813 + 0.0916

( 0.6897 < p < 0.8729 )

An organization surveyed 1000 teens and 1000 parents of teens to
learn about how teens are using social networking sites such as
Facebook and MySpace. The two samples were independently selected
and were chosen in a way that makes it reasonable to regard them as
representative of American teens and parents of American teens.
(a) When asked if they check their online social networking
sites more than 10 times a day, 223 of the teens surveyed said yes.

A sample survey asked a random sample of 1498 adult Canadians,
“Do you agree or disagree that all firearms should be registered?”
Of the 1498 people in the sample, 1282 answered either “Agree
strongly” or “Agree somewhat.” Assuming this survey can be
considered an SRS of all adult Canadians, what is the proportion of
all Canadians who agree (as described) that all firearms should be
registered?
Your solution must include the following parts, in order. Point
form is fine.
