Question

A reproductive clinic reported 43 live births to 207 women under the age of 40 who had previously been unable to conceive. Complete parts a through d below.

Find a 90% confidence interval for the success rate at this clinic. (round to three decimal places)

Answer #1

Solution :

Given that,

n = 207

x = 43

Point estimate = sample proportion = = x / n = 43 / 207 = 0.208

1 - = 1 - 0.208 = 0.792

At 90% confidence level

= 1 - 90%

=1 - 0.90 =0.10

/2
= 0.05

Z/2
= Z_{0.05 = 1.645}

Margin of error = E = Z_{
/ 2} *
((
* (1 -
)) / n)

= 1.645 (((0.208 * 0.792) / 207)

= 0.046

A 90% confidence interval for population proportion p is ,

± E

= 0.208 ± 0.046

= ( 0.162, 0.254 )

A New Orleans reproductive clinic reported 57 live births to 285
women under the age of 40 who had previously been unable to
conceive.
1) What critical value is needed to find a 92% confidence
interval for the true proportion of women who conceive after
previously being unable to do so? Round final answer to two (2)
decimal places.Find and interpret this 92% confidence interval,
rounding the bounds/limits of the confidence interval to four (4)
decimal places. Suppose a researcher...

In 1998, a San Diego reproductive clinic reported 59 births to
307 women under the age of 40 who had previously been unable to
conceive. The clinic wants to cut the margin of error in half to
improve the precision of success rate. How many patients’ result,
n, must be used? Give your answer to as a whole integer. Hint: (i)
The z - critical value for a 90% confidence interval is 1.645. (ii)
Remember to always round up when...

In 1996, a reproductive clinic reported 41 live births to 162
women under the age of 38, but only 6 live births for 76 clients
aged 38 and older. Is there evidence of a difference in the
effectiveness of the clinic's methods for older women?
a) Test an appropriate hypothesis and state your conclusion.
(Use the pooled sample proportion when checking the
success/failure condition.) (Round to two decimal places as
needed.)
Z =
P =
b) If you concluded there...

Argentina and Ecuador: Understanding the Currency Crisis
While fiscal policy is never far from the mind of your average
Argentine, who remembers the tough times and hyperinflation of the
1980s, the events of 2001 and 2002 have brought fiscal policy back
to the forefront of public concern. Though the early 1990s may have
been characterized by financial optimism, Argentina has been in a
recession since Brazil's 1998 monetary crisis sent shockwaves
across the regional and global markets.
In early 2002,...
