Question

**Prenatal vitamins and Autism.** Researchers
studying the link between prenatal vitamin use and autism surveyed
the mothers of a random sample of children aged 24 - 60 months with
autism and conducted another separate random sample for children
with typical development. The table below shows the number of
mothers in each group who did and did not use prenatal vitamins
during the three months before pregnancy.

Prenatal Vitamin | Autism | Typical Development | Total |

No vitamin | 112 | 66 | 178 |

Vitamin | 143 | 161 | 304 |

Total | 255 | 227 | 482 |

Conduct the hypothesis test for the stated null and alternative. Use ?α = K and round numeric answers to four decimal places.

?0H0: The variables use of prenatal vitamins during the three months before pregnancy and autism are independent.

??HA: The variables use of prenatal vitamins during the three months before pregnancy and autism are not independent.

1. Enter the expected values for the hypothesis test in the table below, rounded to four decimal places.

Prenatal Vitamin | Autism | Typical Development |

No vitamin | 94.1701 | 83.8298 |

Vitamin | 160.8298 | 14.1701 |

Suppose a cost-benefit study is conducted to measure the impact
of prenatal vitamin usage to improve birth outcomes and long-term
health of children. The costs are incurred during pregnancy, while
the benefits extend over a long timeframe. Suppose further, that
the researchers conclude that prenatal vitamins are cost-effective
using a 2% discount rate. However, most cost-benefit studies use a
discount rate of 3-5%. Explain whether the use of a lower than
typical discount rate makes these results more convincing or...

Weight gain during pregnancy. In 2004, the
state of North Carolina released to the public a large data set
containing information on births recorded in this state. This data
set has been of interest to medical researchers who are studying
the relationship between habits and practices of expectant mothers
and the birth of their children. The following histograms show the
distributions of weight gain during pregnancy by 865 younger moms
(less than 35 years old) and 137 mature moms (35...
