Show your work in the space below. Provide a brief interpretation of the confidence interval. c.i.= p+/- Z(alpha/2)*Op c.i.=69.44+/-1.96*Squareroot((p*q)/N) c.i.= 69.44+/-1.96*Sqrt((69.44*30.56)/1597) c.i.= 69.44+/-1.96*1.15 c.i.= 69.44+/-2.26 67.18 to 71.7 This shows that the population mean proportion of people who voted in the 1992 election is 95% sure to be between .6718 and .717. 8. The next step is to use Stata to check your work. You will use the proportion command to do this. Type proportion followed by the name of your variable. Stata will give each category a name. For example, if your variable was gender, Stata might call the male category “_prop_1” and the female category “_prop_2.” Pay attention to the names Stata assigns each of the categories when comparing your calculated confidence intervals to the ones Stata produces. Make sure that the Stata results are roughly equivalent to those you calculated by hand. If they’re not, go back and figure out what is causing the discrepancy. Once you have consistent results, copy and paste the command and results to the output sheet. Copy and paste the command and results from the Stata results window to the appropriate place in the output sheet, circling the confidence interval on the output .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
