Question

Leisure Time: In a Gallup poll, 1200 adults were randomly selected and asked if they were satisfied or dissatisfied with the amount of leisure time that they had. Of this Sample 690 said that they were satisfied and 510 said they were dissatisfied. Use a 0.01 significance level to test the claim that less than 60% of adults are satisfied with the amount of leisure time that they have.

What is the p-value and the test statistic?

Do we reject the null or fail to reject the null?

Write a conclusion.

Answer #1

Ho: P = 0.6

Ha: P ≤ 0.6

given xo = 690/1200 = 0.575, so 1-xo = 0.425

In such a binary distribution, variance = xo × (1-xo) / n = 0.575 × 0.425 / 1200 = 2.0365 × 10-4

sd or σ = 0.0143

t-value = (xo − M) / σ/(√ n) = |(0.575 - 0.6)| / 0.0143/(√1200) = 60.69

p value is 0 for this case from the table or using any software

A small **p**-value (in our case ≤ 0.01) indicates
strong evidence against the null hypothesis, so I am rejecting the
null hypothesis. Since, we also observe that 0.575 < 0.6 we can
confirm the one-tailed scenario and confirm that we fail to reject
the claim that less than 60% of adults are satisfied with the
amount of leisure time that they have.

In a recent poll of 745 randomly selected adults, 586 said that
it is morally wrong to not report all income on tax returns. Use a
0.01 significance level to test the claim that 75% of adults say
that it is morally wrong to not report all income on tax returns.
Identify the null hypothesis, alternative hypothesis, test
statistic, P-value, conclusion about the null hypothesis, and
final conclusion that addresses the original claim. Use the
P-value method. Use the normal...

Assume that adults were randomly selected for a poll. They were
asked if they "favor or oppose using federal tax dollars to fund
medical research using stem cells obtained from human embryos." Of
those polled, 481 were in favor, 397 were opposed, and 120 were
unsure. A politician claims that people don't really understand
the stem cell issue and their responses to such questions are
random responses equivalent to a coin toss. Exclude the 120
subjects who said that they...

Adults randomly selected for a poll were asked if they "favor

stem cells obtained from human embryos." Of the subjects
surveyed, 263 were in favor, 256 were opposed, and 89 were
unsure. A politician claims that people don't really understand
the stem cell issue and their responses to such questions are
random responses equivalent to a coin flip. Use a 0.05 significance

1. A Gallup poll asked 1200 randomly chosen
adults what they think the ideal number of children for a family
is. Of this sample, 53% stated that they thought 2 children is the
ideal number. Construct and interpret a 95% confidence interval for
the proportion of all US adults that think 2 children is the ideal
number.

In an August 2012 Gallup survey of 1,012 randomly selected U.S.
adults (age 18 and over), 53% said that they were dissatisfied with
the quality of education students receive in kindergarten through
grade 12. Use the standard normal distribution to test if the
proportion of U.S. adults who are dissatisfied with the education
that students receive in kindergarten through grade 12 differs from
50%. The randomization distribution for this test is approximately
normal and the standard error is SE =...
