Chapter 26: Inference on Proportions (Part 2) A: Test of Hypotheses on p Given a dichotomous population for A and A'. Suppose the proportion of A’s is p which is unknown. We take a (large) sample of size n, and count the number of A’s in the sample. Let this number be r . Then By the Normal Approximating Binomial Theorem (NABT; see Chapter 11(C)), ) , ( ~ p n Bin r ) , ( ~ ) , ( ~ npq np N p n Bin r approx exact

By Chapter 25(B), In the last chapter, we denoted the sample proportion, by and noted that is an unbiased estimate of p. Suppose now we wish to test, for a certain given versus Then, under , (1) becomes so that the test statistic Has a standard normal distribution, N(0,1). We accept at α significance level if This is the one-sample normal test for proportions. n r ) 1 ..( ) ......... , ( ~ n pq p N n r approx ) 2 ....

Example 1 : In a random sample of 150 TV viewers, 63 viewers liked program A. Let p denote the proportion of all TV viewers who liked program A .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
