Question

Physicians at a college campus health clinic are concerned about the rising rates of chlamydia among the student body. Assume national statistics state that the prevalence of chlamydia among university aged students is 11%. The physicians at the college health clinic sampled 134 students and found that 29 of them were confirmed positive for chlamydia.

A) Conduct a formal test to determine if the prevalence of chlamydia is statistically different from the national statistics at the alpha level of 0.05. Write out your null and alternative hypotheses and interpret your results.

B) Construct a 95% confidence interval about your estimate for the prevalence of chlamydia at the college campus.

**PLEASE CHOOSE THE MOST APPROPRIATE OPTION ( Please do
not post calculations that do not match the options given, I must
choose one of the options and I cannot get to the right answer,
thank you.**

A) Ho: p=0.11, Ha: p≠0.11 Z statistic=39.364 Pvalue=<0.0001 Accept the null hypothesis, and conclude that the proportion of chlamydia cases on the college campus is in fact the same as the national average for the age demographic. B) Ci (1.055, 2.094) |
||

Option 2
A) Ho: p=0.11, Ha: p≠0.11 Z statistic=12.364 Pvalue=<0.01 Reject the null hypothesis, and conclude that the proportion of chlamydia cases on the college campus is in fact greater than the national average for the age demographic. B) Ci (.0025, 0.0074) |

A) Ho: p=0.11, Ha: p≠0.11 Z statistic=3.9364 Pvalue=<0.0001 Reject the null hypothesis, and conclude that the proportion of chlamydia cases on the college campus is in fact greater than the national average for the age demographic. B) Ci (0.155, 0.294) |

Answer #1

Correct option is 3

A) Ho: p=0.11, Ha: p≠0.11

**Z statistic=3.9364**

**Pvalue=<0.0001**

**Reject the null hypothesis, and conclude that the
proportion of chlamydia cases on the college campus is in fact
greater than the national average for the age
demographic.**

**B) Ci (0.155, 0.294)**

Write out the null and alternative hypotheses for the following
hypothetical proposal. Carry out a one-sample Z test to determine
significance at the α=0.05 level.
PROPOSAL
Recent scientific literature has suggested a link between
exposure to the endocrine disruptor Bisphenol A (BPA) found
ubiquitously in many plastic materials, and precocious puberty in
adolescents. The transmission is maternal to child during the last
weeks of gestation. Scientists can trace the presence of BPA in
children for years after birth, and believe...

6.16 Is college worth it? Part I: Among a
simple random sample of 331 American adults who do not have a
four-year college degree and are not currently enrolled in school,
48% said they decided not to go to college because they could not
afford school.
(a) A newspaper article states that only a minority of the
Americans who decide not to go to college do so because they cannot
afford it and uses the point estimate from this survey...

A researcher is concerned that his new antihypertensive
medication may be causing insomnia in some of his patients. Suppose
he gathers a SRS of 65 patients treated with the study drug with a
sample average of 6.6 hours of sleep and a σ=1.1. Assuming that
insomnia can be quantified as an average of 4.5 hours of sleep, can
we determine with 95% confidence that his drug avoids diagnosis of
insomnia as a side-effect?
Ho: µ=4.5, Ha: µ<4.5
Z stat=12.4...

Are most student government leaders extroverts? According to
Myers-Briggs estimates, about 82% of college student government
leaders are extroverts.† Suppose that a Myers-Briggs personality
preference test was given to a random sample of 70 student
government leaders attending a large national leadership conference
and that 57 were found to be extroverts. Does this indicate that
the population proportion of extroverts among college student
government leaders is different (either way) from 82%? Use
α = 0.01.
(a) What is the level...

Cars on Campus. Statistics students at a
community college wonder whether the cars belonging to students
are, on average, older than the cars belonging to faculty. They
select a random sample of 49 cars in the student parking lot and
find the average age to be 9.7 years with a standard deviation of
6.7 years. A random sample of 49 cars in the faculty parking lot
have an average age of 3.1 years with a standard deviation of 3.2
years....

Question 21
Suppose a health insurance company is interested in carrying out
an investigation as to the annual expenditures per household on
their healthcare costs. In order to most accurately report their
figures, the company decides to ensure “virtual certainty” about
their estimates by using a Z value of 3.0 for their calculations.
The company conducts a SRS of 843 households and determines the
sample average household expenditures on healthcare is
$43,257.00.
A) Assume the company uses a σ=$879.00. Calculate...

During one particular war, the U.S. military was concerned about
the nutrition of its recruits. Many did not have a sufficient
number of teeth to chew the food provided to soldiers. As a result,
it was likely that they would be undernourished and unable to
fulfill their duties as soldiers. The requirements at that time
specified that a recruit must have "at least four sound double
teeth, one above and one below on each side of the mouth, and so...

The Reliable Housewares store manager wants to learn more about
the purchasing behavior of its "credit" customers. In fact, he is
speculating about four specific cases shown below (a) through (d)
and wants you to help him test their accuracy.
The average annual income of credit customers is less than
$48,000.
The true population proportion of credit customers who live in
an urban area exceeds 55%.
The average number of years lived in the current home is less
than 14...

Question 6
An investigator is looking at the relationship between
periodontal disease and the onset of hypertension. Suppose the
investigator decides to look at height as a variable that may
confound the relationship between exposure and case status in his
study. After collecting information about the height of each
participant, he assembles a database that approximates height with
the normal distribution.
A) Assuming the mean of the distribution is 176.2 cm with a
standard deviation of 17.5 cm, what are...
