Question

If the confidence level is increased from 95% to 99%, will the length of the confidence interval increase, decrease, or remain the same? Explain

Answer #1

**ANSWER::**

if the confidence level is increased from 95% to 99%
**then the length of the confidence interval will
increase.**

**[explanation for your clarification:-**

because when you are increasing your confidence level it means that you need to be more sure that your population mean will lie within the interval..which suggests more wider interval.

t value for df=5 and 99% ci be= 4.032

then margin of error= (0.1384*4.032)

= 0.558

**so your confidence interval be:**

=(3.2-0.558 , 3.2+0.558)

**= (2.642 , 3.758)**

The length of a confidence interval changes when either the
confidence level changes or the sample size changes. To illustrate
this, imagine a statistician takes a sample from a population with
a population standard deviation of 2. The sample mean is calculated
to be 10. Construct 3 different confidence intervals:
3a) Assume the sample size is 30 and the confidence level is
95%
3b) Assume the sample size is 30 and the confidence level is
90%
3c) Assume the sample...

Explain whether the width of a 95% confidence interval would
increase, decrease, or remain the same as a result of each of the
following changes.
(a) Decrease the confidence level from 95% to 90%.
(b) Decrease the sample size from n = 1000 to n = 500.

If we change a 95% confidence interval estimate to a 99%
confidence interval estimate, we can expect
A.
the required sample size to increase
B.
the UCL - LCL range to decrease
C.
precision of the estimate to decrease
D.
precision of the estimate to increase

A. which confidence interval is wider? The 95%
confidence interval or the 99% confidence interval?
difference for both confidence intervals: 0.109
95% CI for difference: (-0.123, 0.340)
99% CI for difference: (-0.199, 0.416)
B. Given an arbitrary data set, is there a general
relationship between confidence level and the width of the
confidence interval? Explain.
Please make the answers to parts A and B detailed and easy to
read and follow, thank you :)

Increasing the confidence-interval level from .95 to .99
a.
increases the likelihood of including the population mean within
its limits
b.
decreases the likelihood of including the population mean within
its limits
c.
increases the number of degrees of freedom
d.
none of these, since a confidence interval may never include the
true population mean

If a confidence interval is constructed at a confidence level of 99% instead of 95%:
a)Estimation precision decreases
b)The precision of the estimate is not altered
c)We can accurately calculate the value of the parameter of interest
d)Estimation accuracy improves significantly

Calculate the 99%, 95%, and 90% confidence intervals for the
following information. Identify how these confidence intervals are
similar and how they are different. Explain why. (70
points)
µ = 89 σ = 9 n = 121
The 99% Confidence Interval:
The 95% Confidence Interval:
The 90% Confidence Interval:
Similarities:
Differences:
