7.3 Large Sample (CI’s) for π and 2 1 μ μ- Confidence interval for proportion A bound on the error of estimation A confidence interval for µ 1 2 Let = proportion of population having a particular characteristic. A sample of size n is taken and a natural estimate for π is n successes of number = p , where Success = possessing the characteristic. Properties of sampling distribution of the proportion p / n π σ π μ p p ) 1 ( = = If both np and n (1-p) greater than 10, then sampling distribution for proportion is approximately normal. When n is large, z = (1 )/ p n - - ~ N ( 0, 1). Using the earlier approach, 100(1- α )% CI is (we need to solve a Quadratic equation here ) 1
