Thus, ˆ p = . 779874 is the estimator for the true proportion of all truck drivers who suffer from sleep apnea. QUESTION 2: What is a 95% confidence interval for the proportion of all truck drivers who suffer from obstructive sleep apnea? – On the output, the interval under “95.0% CI” is the 95% confidence interval for the true population proportion, p . Thus, 95% confidence interval for the true proportion of all truck drivers who suffer from sleep apnea is (0 . 715473 , . 844276). QUESTION 3: What is a 90% confidence interval for the proportion of all truck drivers who suffer from obstructive sleep apnea? How does this interval compare to the interval that you obtained in your answer to question 2? – Output for 90% CI: Test and Confidence Interval for One Proportion Test of p = 0.5 vs p not = 0.5 Sample X N Sample p 90.0 % CI ZValue PValue 1 124 159 0.779874 (0.725827, 0.833922) 7.06 0.000 – Thus, 90% confidence interval for the true proportion of all truck drivers who suffer from sleep apnea is (0 . 725827 , . 833922). – As expected, the 90% confidence interval is shorter than the 95% interval obtained as the answer to Question 1....
