[email protected] Competencies The reader will apply a Z test to obtain inferences from two independent proportions. He (she) will calculate confidence interval from two independent proportions. Introduction Often, we make comparisons of two proportions from independent samples. In class we learned earlier to calculate confidence intervals and hypothesis test for a proportion; we can use the same methods to make inferences on proportions, if the sample size is large. For a large sample we can use a Normal approximation to the binomial distribution. Examples In a study of urinary tract infection not complicated, patients were assigned to be treated with trimethoprim / sulfamethoxazole and fosfomycin / trometamol. 92 of 100 treated with fosfomycin / trometamol showed bacteriological cure while 61 of 100 treated with trimethoprim / sulfamethoxazole were cured infection. Introduction When comparing proportions of independent samples, we must first calculate the difference in proportions....
