Question

A county clerk wants to improve voter registration. He wants to send out reminders in the mail to all citizens in the county who are eligible to vote. To determine if it will actually improve voter registration, a random sample of 1250 potential voters was taken. No reminders were sent out to a group of 625 eligible voters and of those 625, 299 registered to vote. Reminders were sent out to another group of 625 voters and of those 348 registered to vote. The county clerk claims that the proportion of people who registered was significantly greater in the group that was sent the reminders. Using a 0.10 significance level, test the claim that the proportion of registered voters is higher in the group that received the reminders.

A.What is the critical value for this test?

B.What is the p-value for this test?

C.What is the test statistic for this test?

D.What is the decision for this test?

Answer #1

Q4) A pilot study in Fair weather County wishes to determine
whether mailing reminders to register to vote to all citizens in
the county who are eligible will improve voter registration
numbers. A random sample of 1500 potential voters was taken. Then
this sample was randomly divided into two groups. Group 1 consisted
of 750 people. Reminders were sent in the mail to each member in
the group. The number from this group who registered was 405. Group
2 consisted...

Suppose that a random sample of 1000 potential voters was
randomly divided into two groups.
Group 1: 470 potential voters; no registration reminders sent; 230
registered to vote
Group 2: 530 potential voters; registration reminders sent; 350
registered to vote
Do these data support the claim that proportion of voters who
registered was greater in the group that
received reminders than in the group that did not, at the 5%
significance level?

A random sample of potential voters were randomly divided into
two groups. Group 1: 500 potential voters( no registration
reminders sent); 248 registered to vote, Group 2: 600 potential
voters(registration reminders sent); 332 registered to vote. Do
these data support the claim that the proportion of voters who
registered was greater in the group that got reminders. Use a 1%
level of significance. a) Find p1,p2,p and q.
Round to three decimal places. b) State the null and alternate
hypotheses....

Only 12% of registered voters voted in the last election. Will
voter participation increase for the upcoming election? Of the 321
randomly selected registered voters surveyed, 51 of them will vote
in the upcoming election. What can be concluded at the αα = 0.10
level of significance?

Q1) Suppose a production line operates with a mean filling
weight of 16 ounces per container. Since
over- or under-filling can be dangerous, a quality control
inspector samples of 24 items to determine
whether the filling weight must be adjusted. The sample revealed a
mean of 16.32 ounces with a
sample standard deviation of 0.8 ounces. Using a 0.10 level of
significance, can it be concluded that the
process is out of control (not equal to 16 ounces)?
Q2) A...

Multiple Choice:
How often do you go out dancing? This question was asked
by a professional survey group on behalf of the National Arts
Survey. A random sample of 95 single men showed that 24% went out
dancing occasionally. Another random sample of 92 single women
showed that 21% went out dancing occasionally. Is the proportion of
single men who go out dancing occasionally higher than the
proportion of single women? Use a 5% level of
significance.
