Question

C) A random survey of 436 workers showed that 192 of them said that it is unethical to monitor employee email. When 121 senior-level bosses are surveyed, 40 say that it is unethical to monitor employee email. Use a 0.05 confidence level to test that claim that the proportion of workers is higher than the proportion of senior-level bosses who believe that it is unethical to monitor employee email.25. Use this to construct a 90% C. I. Interpret your results. (carry 3 decimal points.)

Answer #1

**Answer:**

Given,

sample proportion p1^ = x1/n1 = 192/436 = 0.44

p2^ = x2/n2 = 40/121 = 0.33

p^ = (x1 + x2)/(n1 + n2) = (192 + 40)/(436 + 121) = 0.417

q^ = 1 - p^ = 1 - 0.417 = 0.583

Ho : p1-p2 <= 0

Ha : p1 -p2 > 0

Here it is a upper tailed test

alpha = 0.05

Critical value = 1.645 [since from z table]

Rejection region:

Reject Ho, if z > 1.645

consider,test statistic z = (p1^ - p2^)/sqrt(pq(1/n1 + 1/n2))

substitute values

= (0.44 - 0.33)/sqrt(0.417*0.583(1/436 + 1/121))

z = 2.17

Here we observe that, test statistic > critical value, so we reject Ho.

So here there is a sufficient evidence.

Now consider,

Here at 90% CI, z value is 1.645

90% CI = (p1^ - p2^) +/- z*sqrt(pq(1/n1 + 1/n2))

substitute values

= (0.44 - 0.33) +/- 1.645*sqrt(0.417*0.583(1/436 + 1/121))

= 0.11 +/- 0.083

= (0.027 , 0.193)

A survey of 436 workers showed that 192 of them said that it was
seriously unethical to monitor employee e-mail. When 121
senior-level bosses were surveyed, 40 said that it was seriously
unethical to monitor employee e-mail. Use a 0.05 significance level
to test the claim that for those saying that monitoring e-mail is
seriously unethical, the proportion of employee is greater than the
proportion of bosses.
a) Write the claim and opposite in symbolic form.
b) Identify the Null...

A survey first taken of 423 workers showed that 189 of them said
that it was seriously unethical to monitor employee e-mail.
Secondly, when 125 senior-level bosses were surveyed, 40 said that
it was seriously unethical to monitor employee e-mail.
a) Use a 0.05 significance level to test the claim that for those
saying that monitoring e-mail is seriously unethical, the
proportion of employees is greater than the proportion of
bosses.

A survey of 500 workers showed that 330 of them said that it was
seriously unethical to monitor employee e-mail. Use a 5%
significance level to test the claim that the proportion of
employees who say that monitoring e-mail is seriously unethical is
different from 60%. What is the DECISION?
Select one:
a. fail to reject the claim that the proportion of employees who
say that monitoring e-mail is seriously unethical is equal to
60%
b. reject the claim that...

Workers and senior-level bosses were asked if it was seriously
unethical to monitor employee e-mail. The results are summarized
in the table to the right. Use a 0.05 significance level to test
the claim that the response is independent of whether the subject
is a worker or a boss. Yes No Workers 198 242 Bosses 37 85

Smartphone Users. A Ring Central survey of 380
smartphone users showed that 152 of them said that theirsmartphone
is the only thing they could not live without. Use a 0.01
significance level to test the claim thatfewer than half of
smartphone users identify the smartphone as the only thing they
could not live without

What is your favorite color? A large survey of countries,
including the United States, China, Russia, France, Turkey, Kenya,
and others, indicated that most people prefer the color blue. In
fact, about 24% of the population claim blue as their favorite
color.† Suppose a random sample of n = 59 college students
were surveyed and r = 11 of them said that blue is their
favorite color. Does this information imply that the color

A.) Is the national crime rate really going down? Some
sociologists say yes! They say that the reason for the decline in
crime rates in the 1980s and 1990s is demographics. It seems that
the population is aging, and older people commit fewer crimes.
According to the FBI and the Justice Department, 70% of all arrests
are of males aged 15 to 34 years. Suppose you are a sociologist in
Rock Springs, Wyoming, and a random sample of police files...
