Question

Let us assume that we randomly choose a sample of 144 people. 51% of people from our sample reported having voted for candidate A in the 2004 election. Using this sample, find 95% confidence interval for the population proportion of those who voted for this candidate. Round to three digits.

Lower end of confidence interval:

Upper end of confidence interval:

Answer #1

Solution:

The 95% confidence interval for population proportion is given as follows:

Where, p̂ is sample proportion, q̂ = 1 - p̂, n is sample size and Z(0.05/2) is critical z-value to construct 95% confidence interval.

Sample proportion of people who voted for candidate A in the 2004 election is given by, p̂ = 51% = 51/100 = 0.51

q̂ = 1 - 0.51 = 0.49 and n = 144

Using Z-table we get, Z(0.05/2) = 1.96

Hence, 95% confidence interval for population proportion is,

**Lower end of confidence interval : 0.428**

**Upper end of confidence interval : 0.592**

Please rate the answer. Thank you.

A professional pollster takes an exit poll for an election of a
governor in Pennsylvania. Of the 1350 adults who voted in that
election, 670 say they voted for the Democratic candidate. We will
treat this exit poll as a random sample of all the people who voted
in that election.
