Lecture: MWF TTh GSI: Carrie Katherine Lin Lab Section # . About a proportion: Suppose 20% of U.S. adults have a vitamin B deficiency. a. That 20% is a parameter, right? However, as a researcher, you’re unaware of that 20%, so you take a sample of size 100 and determine X = the # of adults with a vitamin B deficiency. Here, the expected value of X = . . . . . . . . . whereas the std dev of X = . . . . . . . . . . b. In your experiment, suppose x = 27 so that p ˆ = 0.27 (or 27%). That 27% is a . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Consider all possible p ˆ s from a sample of size 100.
