An urban economist is curious if the distribution in where Oregon residents live is different today
than it was in 1990. She observes that today there are approximately 3,109 thousand residents in
NW Oregon, 902 thousand residents in SW Oregon, 244 thousand in Central Oregon, and
102 thousand in Eastern Oregon. She knows that in 1990 the breakdown was as follows: 72.7%
NW Oregon, 20.7% SW Oregon, 4.8% Central Oregon, and 2.8% Eastern Oregon.
Can she conclude that the distribution in residence is different today at a 0.05 level of
significance?
A.
yes because the p-value = .0009
B.
no, because the p-value = .0009
C.
yes because the p-value = .0172
D.
no because the p-value = .0172

Pamplona, Spain is the home of the festival of San Fermin – The Running of the Bulls. The town
is in festival mode for a week and a half every year at the beginning of July. There is a running
joke in the city, that Pamplona has a baby boom every April – 9 months after San Fermin. To test
this claim, a resident takes a random sample of 300 birthdays from native residents and finds the
following

Students at a high school are asked to evaluate their experience in the class at the end of each
school year. The courses are evaluated on a 1-4 scale – with 4 being the best experience
possible. In the History Department, the courses typically are evaluated at 10% 1’s, 15% 2’s,
34% 3’s, and 41% 4’s.
Mr. Goodman sets a goal to outscore these numbers. At the end of the year he takes a random
sample of his evaluations and finds 10 1’s, 13 2’s, 48 3’s, and 52 4’s. At the 0.05 level of
significance, can Mr. Goodman claim that his evaluations are significantly different than the
History Department’s?
