Question

20. Working at home: According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 43% of men who worked at home were college graduates. In a sample of 500 women who worked at home, 162 were college graduates.

a. Find a point estimate for the proportion of college graduates among women who work at home.

b. Construct a 98% confidence interval for the proportion of women who work at home who are college graduates.

Answer #1

a) The point estimate for the proportion of college graduates among women who work at home is computed here as: p = x/n = 162/500 = 0.324

**Therefore 0.324 is the required point estimate
here.**

b) From standard normal tables, we have:

P(Z < 2.326) = 0.99

Therefore,

P(- 2.326 < Z < 2.326) = 0.98

Now the confidence interval here is obtained as:

**This is the required confidence interval
here.**

Working at home: According to the U.S Census Bureau, 42% of men
who worked at home were college graduates. In a sample of 514 women
who worked at home, 158 were college graduates.
(c) Based on the confidence interval, is it reasonable to
believe that the proportion of college graduates among women who
work at home is the same as the proportion of college graduates
among men who work at home? Explain.
yes/no, because 0.42 is/ is not contained in...
