Question

Why are confidence interval estimations important to clearly reporting data analysis results? Please include a real-world business example in your response.

Answer #1

There are two types of estimates

1. point estimates

2. interval estimates

point estimates are generally a point representing the whole data and interval estimates are basically an interval in which observations may lie.

For example, If you have to estimate the weight of women in your locality one way is to say, the mean weight is 130 lbs this is point estimate. the other way is the weight of women is between 115 to 140 lbs. now most of the women will have weight between this range. this is called interval estimate.

ow from this you can identify whether to start a weight loss campaign in the locality or not. Mean alone can not give a clear picture of the scenario.

Why or why not for both of the above?
How about two real world examples?

Please criticize the following statement regarding the
interpretation of a confidence interval:
Results for a 95% Confidence Interval for estimating the
population mean: 74.1< Mean< 83.1
" After looking at the above results we can conclude that there
is a 95% chance that the confidence interval contains the true mean
of the population"
Is the above statement correct? Why? If it is not correct how
can we re-state the conclusion in order to interpret correctly the
above confidence interval?

What happens to the
width of your confidence interval as you increase your confidence
level? Why does this happen? Provide a real life example that
explains this concept.

A confidence interval for a population mean is a region around
the sample mean that we are fairly sure or confident in this case,
that this interval contains a population mean. This is the
confidence level. This level is a percentage of how confident we
are that the interval contains the population mean. The car mileage
case in the chapter is one common example of a confidence interval,
which shows strong evidence that the mean EPA city and highway
miles...
