(b) With a prior estimate of p=0.30, 972 . 556 ) 7 . 0 )( 3 . 0 ( 05 . 0 575 . 2 ˆ ˆ 2 * * 2 2 = = = q p E z n or 557 Therefore, 557 subscribers should be surveyed. (c) If a 40% nonresponse rate is anticipated, we need to end up with 557 surveys, after nonresponse. So 0.6N=557 or N=928 surveys must be mailed. Such a nonresponse rate may cause a bias in the results if the nonresponse rate is related to the proportion of interest, i.e. subscribers with income above \$100,000 may be less likely to respond to the survey. 9.2 (a) 5 . 0 : 0 = p H vs 5 . 0 : 1 p H . The alternative should be two-sided because there is no prior knowledge of whether heads should be more or less likely than tails.
