Question

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) would like to test the hypothesis that the proportion of obese adults in the U.S. has increased this year when compared to last year. A random sample of 120 adults this year found that 9 were obese. Last year, a random sample of 150 adults found that 15 were obese.

If Population 1 is defined as this year and Population 2 is defined as last year.

a) Define the null hypothesis and alternative hypothesis.

b) Define the test statistic and calculate its value.

c) Using ? = 0.05, find the critical value for this hypothesis test.

d) Interpret the result and make your conclusion.

e) Find p-value and discuss based on the p-value.

f) Construct a 90% appropriate confidence bound for the difference in population

proportions and interpret the result accordingly.

Answer #1

A local school board would like to test the hypothesis that the
proportion of Americans who think unions have a positive effect on
schools has decreased this year when compared to last year. A
random sample of 160 Americans last year found that 48 felt unions
have a positive effect on schools. A random sample of 140 Americans
this year found that 28 felt unions have a positive effect on
schools. Define Population 1 as this year and Population 2...

The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC) found that 17.9% of women ages 12 – 59 test seropositive for
HPV‑16. Suppose that Tara, an infectious disease specialist, assays
blood serum from a random sample of ?=1000 women in the United
States aged 12 – 59. Apply the central limit theorem for the
distribution of a sample proportion to find the probability that
the proportion, ?̂ , of women in Tara's sample who test positive
for HPV‑16 is...

Perform a hypothesis test to determine if a difference exists in
the proportion of uninsured drivers between the counties of Santa
Clara and San Mateo. A random sample of 150 drivers from Santa
Clara found that 42 were uninsured. A random sample of 125 drivers
from San Mateo found that 23 were uninsured. Define Population 1 as
Santa Clara drivers and Population 2 as San Mateo drivers.
Construct a 90% confidence interval for the difference in
population proportions and interpret...

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the percent
of adults 20 years of age and over in the United States who are
overweight is 69%. One city’s council wants to know if the
proportion of overweight citizens in their city is different from
this known national proportion. They take a random sample of 150
adults 20 years of age or older in their city and find that 98 are
classified as overweight. At the 4% level of significance,...

According to the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention, average life expectancy has risen to 77.6
years. It has been suggested has rural areas in the Southwest have
a shorter life span than the general population. In a random sample
of 18 recently deceased residents of the rural Southwest, the
average life span was 75.9, with a sample standard deviation of 9.8
years.
a. State the null and
alternative hypotheses to be used to test whether residents in the...

47. A major producer of ice cream and would like to test the
hypothesis that the average American consumes more than 18 ounces
of ice cream per month. A random sample of 15 Americans was found
to consume an average of 20.2 ounces of ice cream last month. The
standard deviation for this sample was 3.9 ounces. The producer
would like to set α=0.10. The p-value for this hypothesis test is
between _____ and ______ ?

According to the Centers for Disease Control, 33.5 % of American
adults ages 20 and over suffer from hypertension. A sample of 131
adults were recruited to participate in relaxation training in
hopes of lowering the incidence of hypertension. At the end of a
year, the adults are re-evaluated and the proportion who suffer
from hypertension is recorded.
Completely describe the sampling distribution of the sample
proportion of adults who suffer from hypertension when samples of
size 131 are selected....

According to a report on sleep deprivation by the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention, the proportion of California
residents who reported insufficient rest or sleep during each of
the preceding 30 days is 0.081, while this proportion is 0.088 for
Oregon residents. These data are based on simple random samples of
11538 California and 4645 Oregon residents. Let p1p1 be the
proportion of California residents and p2p2 be the proportion of
Oregon residents, and report all answers to 4...

According to a report on sleep deprivation by the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention, the proportion of California
residents who reported insufficient rest or sleep during the on
each of the preceding 30 days is 8.0% while this proportion is 8.8%
for Oregon residents. A random sample of 11,545 California and
4,691 Oregon residents were surveyed. We are interested in finding
out if there is evidence to suggest that the rate of sleep
deprivation is different for the two...

You will perform a Two Sample Hypothesis Test for Proportions.
For the Hypothesis Test, make sure to report the following
steps:
Identify the null hypothesis, Ho, and the alternative
hypothesis, Ha. Determine whether the hypothesis test is
left-tailed, right-tailed, or two-tailed. Find the critical
value(s) and identify the rejection region(s). Find the appropriate
standardized test statistic. If convenient, use technology. Decide
whether to reject or fail to reject the null hypothesis. Interpret
the decision in the context of the original...
