PAM 210 Professor Owens Problem set 5 3.11 Subjects: random persons called by interviewer Factors/treatment: if interviewer provided name, university, name and university, and if interviewer said he/she would provide results; overall – treatment is the interviewer’s introduction Response variables: whether or not the person being interviewed continues the survey 3.67 a) “margin of sampling error” is larger for Hispanics than the group as a whole because the Hispanics represent a smaller portion. Smaller portions have larger margins of error because each value has a higher impact and is valued more. b)a very small sample size is unreliable because the data gathered is more likely to not be representative of the whole, being more likely to be skewed one way or another. 3.75 a) 62,62,80,58 mean = 65.5 b) 62,73,82,58 = 68.75 72,82,73,66 = 73.25 73,65,80,74 = 73 66,62,58,62 = 62
