ADM 2304 Fall 2008 Final Exam Solutions 1 (a) Let p be the proportion supporting an election (ignoring the undecided). -Ho: p=.5: Ha: p>.5 -p-hat = 430/825 = .5212 -z = .0212 / sqrt(.5*.5/825) = 1.22 -z(.05)= 1.645 -do not reject null H, and conclude there were not more people supporting an election over coalition Optional alternative approach to compare two sample proportions from the same sample. If Ha: p(election) > p(coalition), then must calculate standard error accounting for non- independent sample proportions: -p1hat - p2hat = .5212 - .4788 = .0424 -std err is sqrt( .52*.48 / 825 + .52*.48 / 825 + 2 * .52*.48 / 825) and z = 1.22 We do not need to ignore the undecideds if we compare the non-independent proportions: -p1hat = 430/992 = .433, p2hat = 395/992 = .398, -std err is sqrt(p1hat * q1hat /992 + p2hat*q2hat/992 + 2*p1hat*p2hat/992) = .028933 -z = (.433468 - .398185 ) / .028933 = 1.219457 = 1.22. For some strange reason, many students calculated std err as Sqrt( p-bar * q-bar * ( 1/430 + 1/395 ). This is obviously incorrect. (b) Ho: p(W) = .30, p(Ont)=.39, p(Que)=.24, p(Mar)=.07 Observed Freq Exp.Freq = 992*p(i) Cont. To chi-square West 301 297.6 .0388 Ont 390 386.88 .0252 Que 240 238.08 .0155 Mar 61 69.44 1.0258 Total 992 992 1.1 Df. = 3 Critical value is 7.81 We do not reject the null H since 1.1 not > 7.81 Conclude the observed distribution is consistent with the population distribution.
