Question

Now the World Bank wants to examine the proportion of Tanzanian women who have access to a financial account. To do so, statisticians take a simple random sample of 600 Tanzanian women, out of a population of about 29 million and find that 43.5 percent of the sample have access to a financial account.

- Calculate a 95 percent confidence interval for this proportion.
- Calculate a 99 percent confidence interval for this proportion.

Answer #1

Answer:

sample size: n= 600

sample proportion:

a)

Confidence level: c = 95%

formula for confidence inteval is

where Zc is the z critical value for c= 95%

Zc= 1.96

0.39533 < P < 0.47467

rounding to 3 decimals

0.395 < P < 0.475

**Thus we get 95% confidence
interval as ( 0.395
, 0.475)**

b)

Confidence level: c = 99%

formula for confidence inteval is

where Zc is the z critical value for c= 99%

Zc= 2.576

0.38287 < P < 0.48713

rounding to 3 decimals

0.383 < P < 0.487

**Thus we get 99% confidence
interval as ( 0.383
, 0.487 )**

A physical therapist wants to determine the difference in the
proportion of men and women who participate in regular sustained

confidence, assuming that (a) he uses the estimates of 21.3%
male and 18.2% female from a previous year? (b) he does not use
any prior estimates?

A student wants to study the ages of women who apply for
marriage licenses in his county. He selects a random sample of 94
marriage licenses issued in the last year in the county and makes a
95% confidence interval for the mean age at which women marry. The
95% confidence interval is (23.6, 27.3).
