Question 1 (B): Compute a 95% confidence interval estimate for the mean salary of each population. Upper interval = mean + confidence level Lower interval = mean – confidence level Population 1: Confidence interval estimate Upper Interval 20590.03 Lower interval 19302.87 Population 2: Confidence interval estimate Upper Interval 15308.49 Lower interval 14487.77 Population 3: Confidence interval estimate Upper Interval 25508.25 Lower interval 24233.87 Population 4: Confidence interval estimate Upper Interval 20535.2 Lower interval 19650.61 Question1 (c): Compute a 95% confidence interval estimate for the standard deviation of each population’s salary . Population 1: n= 80, s= 2891.98 With excel: =CHIINV(0.025,79) With excel: =CHIINV(0.975,79) 95% confidence interval estimate for standard deviation= = [2502.8732, 3425.4722] Population 2: n=86, s= 1913.98 With excel: =CHIINV(0.025,85) With excel: =CHIINV(0.975,85) 95% confidence interval estimate for standard deviation= = [1664.4751, 2252.1804] Population 3: n= 74, s= 2750.29 With excel: =CHIINV(0.025,73)
