Chapter 20: 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 19(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 ....( ˆ n r p = p ˆ 0 p 0 0 : p p H = 0 : p p H A ) , ( ~ ˆ 0 0 0 n q p p N p approx 0 H α z z S T .
