Chapter 11 Comparisons Involving Proportions and a Test of Independence
Inference about the Difference Between the Proportions of Two Populations A Hypothesis Test for Proportions of a Multinomial Population Test of Independence: Contingency Tables Ho: p1 - p2 = 0 Ha: p1 - p2 = 0

Inferences About the Difference between the Proportions of Two Populations
Sampling Distribution of Interval Estimation of p1 - p2 Hypothesis Tests about p1 - p2

Sampling Distribution of
Expected Value Standard Deviation where: n1 = size of sample taken from population 1 n2 = size of sample taken from population 2

Sampling Distribution of
Distribution Form If the sample sizes are large (n1p1, n1(1 - p1), n2p2, and n2(1 - p2) are all greater than or equal to 5), the sampling distribution of can be approximated by a normal probability distribution.

Sampling Distribution of
p1 – p2

Interval Estimation of p1 - p2
(Confidence) Interval Estimate Point Estimator of

Example: MRA MRA (Market Research Associates) is conducting research to evaluate the effectiveness of a client’s new advertising campaign. Before the new campaign began, a telephone survey of 150 households in the test market area showed 60 households “aware” of the client’s product. The new campaign has been initiated with TV and newspaper advertisements running for three weeks.

Example: MRA A survey conducted immediately after the new campaign showed 120 of 250 households “aware” of the client’s product. Does the data support the position that the advertising campaign has provided an increased awareness of the client’s product?

Example: MRA Point Estimator of the Difference Between the Proportions of Two Populations is p1 = proportion of the population of households “aware” of the product after the new campaign p2 = proportion of the population of households “aware” of the product before the new campaign = sample proportion of households “aware” of the product after the new campaign product before the new campaign

Example: MRA Interval Estimate of p1 - p2: Large-Sample Case
For = .05, z.025 = _______: (.0510) -.02 to +.18

Example: MRA Interval Estimate of p1 - p2: Large-Sample Case
Conclusion At a 95% confidence level, the interval estimate of the difference between the proportion of households aware of the client’s product before and after the new advertising campaign is ___ to _____.

Hypothesis Tests about p1 - p2
Hypotheses H0: p1 - p2 < 0 Ha: p1 - p2 > 0 Test statistic where takes the _______ part of the value in H0.

Hypothesis Tests about p1 - p2
Point Estimator of where p1 = p2 where:

Example: MRA Hypothesis Tests about p1 - p2
Can we conclude, using a .05 level of significance, that the proportion of households aware of the client’s product increased after the new advertising campaign?

Example: MRA Hypothesis Tests about p1 - p2 Hypotheses
H0: p1 - p2 < 0 Ha: p1 - p2 > 0 p1 = proportion of the population of households “aware” of the product ______ the new campaign p2 = proportion of the population of households

Example: MRA Hypothesis Tests about p1 - p2
Rejection Rule Reject H0 if z > 1.645 Test Statistic

Example: MRA Hypothesis Tests about p1 - p2 Conclusion
z = ______ < Do not reject H0. We cannot conclude, with at least 95 % confidence, that the proportion of households aware of the client’s product increased after the new advertising campaign.

Hypothesis (Goodness of Fit) Test for Proportions of a Multinomial Population
1. Set up the null and alternative hypotheses. 2. Select a random sample and record the observed frequency, fi , for each of the k categories. 3. Assuming H0 is true, compute the expected frequency, ei , in each category by multiplying the category probability by the sample size.

Hypothesis (Goodness of Fit) Test for Proportions of a Multinomial Population
4. Compute the value of the test statistic. 5. Reject H0 if (where  is the significance level and there are k - 1 degrees of freedom).

Example: Finger Lakes Homes (A)
Multinomial Distribution Goodness of Fit Test Finger Lakes Homes manufactures four models of prefabricated homes, a two-story colonial, a ranch, a split-level, and an A-frame. To help in production planning, management would like to determine if previous customer purchases indicate that there is a preference in the style selected.

Example: Finger Lakes Homes (A)
Multinomial Distribution Goodness of Fit Test The number of homes sold of each model for ______ sales over the past two years is shown below. Model Colonial Ranch Split-Level A-Frame # Sold

Example: Finger Lakes Homes (A)
Multinomial Distribution Goodness of Fit Test Let: pC = population proportion that purchase a colonial pR = population proportion that purchase a ranch pS = population proportion that purchase a split-level pA = population proportion that purchase an A-frame

Example: Finger Lakes Homes (A)
Multinomial Distribution Goodness of Fit Test Hypotheses H0: pC = pR = pS = pA = .25 Ha: The population proportions are not pC = .25, pR = .25, pS = .25, and pA = .25

Example: Finger Lakes Homes (A)
Multinomial Distribution Goodness of Fit Test Rejection Rule With  = .05 and k - 1 = = 3 degrees of freedom Do Not Reject H0 Reject H0 2 7.815

Example: Finger Lakes Homes (A)
Multinomial Distribution Goodness of Fit Test Expected Frequencies e1 = .25(100) = e2 = .25(100) = 25 e3 = .25(100) = e4 = .25(100) = 25 Test Statistic = = 10

Example: Finger Lakes Homes (A)
Multinomial Distribution Goodness of Fit Test Conclusion c2 = 10 > We reject the assumption there is no home style preference, at the .05 level of significance.

Test of Independence: Contingency Tables
1. Set up the null and alternative hypotheses. 2. Select a random sample and record the observed frequency, fij , for each cell of the contingency table. 3. Compute the expected frequency, eij , for each cell.

Test of Independence: Contingency Tables
4. Compute the test statistic. 5. Reject H0 if (where  is the significance level and with n rows and m columns there are (n - 1)(m - 1) degrees of freedom).

Example: Finger Lakes Homes (B)
Contingency Table (Independence) Test Each home sold can be classified according to price and to style. Finger Lakes Homes’ manager would like to determine if the price of the home and the style of the home are independent variables.

Example: Finger Lakes Homes (B)
Contingency Table (Independence) Test The number of homes sold for each model and price for the past two years is shown below. For convenience, the price of the home is listed as either \$99,000 or less or more than \$99,000. Price Colonial Ranch Split-Level A-Frame < \$99, > \$99,

Example: Finger Lakes Homes (B)
Contingency Table (Independence) Test Hypotheses H0: Price of the home is independent of the style of the home that is purchased Ha: Price of the home is not independent of the style of the home that is purchased

Example: Finger Lakes Homes (B)
Contingency Table (Independence) Test Expected Frequencies Price Colonial Ranch Split-Level A-Frame Total < \$99K > \$99K Total

Example: Finger Lakes Homes (B)
Contingency Table (Independence) Test Rejection Rule With  = .05 and (2 - 1)(4 - 1) = 3 d.f., Reject H0 if 2 > 7.81

Example: Finger Lakes Homes (B)
Contingency Table (Independence) Test Test Statistic = = ______

Example: Finger Lakes Homes (B)
Contingency Table (Independence) Test Conclusion 2 = ____ > 7.81, so we reject H0, the assumption that the price of the home is independent of the style of the home that is purchased.
