Question

A study of the pay of corporate chief executive officers (CEOs)
examined the increase in cash compensation of the CEOs of 98
companies, adjusted for inflation, in a recent year. The mean
increase in real compensation was *x* = 6.9%, and the
standard deviation of the increases was *s* = 43%. Is this
good evidence that the mean real compensation *μ* of all
CEOs increased that year?

H:_{o} |
μ = 0 |
(no increase) |

H:_{a} |
μ > 0 |
(an increase) |

(a) Calculate the P-value (Round your answer to four decimal places.)

Answer #1

Following is the compensation, in millions of dollars, for Chief
Executive Officers (CEOs) of a random sample of 20 U.S.
corporations in 2014: 4.03 0.54 1.45 1.25 2.46 3.32 0.69 7.75 .061
4.05 2.34 2.77 1.09 2.09 8.66 1.13 1.02 4.37 1.51 3.47 Compute a
95% confidence interval for the mean compensation of CEOs of U.S.
corporations.

Are America's top chief executive officers (CEOs) really worth
all that money? One way to answer this question is to look at row
B, the annual company percentage increase in revenue,
versus row A, the CEO's annual percentage salary increase
in that same company. Suppose that a random sample of companies
yielded the following data:
B: Percent increase

A researcher studying stress is interested in the blood pressure
measurements of chief executive officers (CEOs) of major
corporations. He believes that the mean systolic blood
pressure,
μ
, of CEOs of major corporations is more than
136
mm Hg, which is the value reported in a possibly outdated
journal article. He plans to perform a statistical test and
measures the systolic blood pressures of a random sample of
75
CEOs of major corporations.
Suppose that the population of systolic...

A shareholders' group, in lodging a protest, claimed that the
mean tenure for a chief executive office (CEO) was at least ten
years. A survey of companies reported in the Wall Street Journal
found a sample mean tenure of x̄ = 8.66 years for
CEOs with a standard deviation of s = 7.39 years.
a. Formulate hypotheses that can be used to
challenge the validity of the claim made by the shareholders'
group.
