F. f. f. 3 Estimation of Proportions in One Population In most applications, we are not interested in estimating the number of successes but rather the proportion, p, of successes that occur. The population binomial proportion is estimated from a random sample by simply dividing the number of events or successes (that is, X) by the total number of trials (that is, n). Thus, p = X n. 5). Many authors use the rule of thumb that the variance of X should be greater or equal to 5 in order to employ this approximation.

We reject H0 if X 2 is greater than a prespecified critical value and do not reject otherwise. 13. 12047 inches. If we want to test the hypothesis of whether or not the variance is equal to 1, then we can formally test H0 : σ 2 = 1 versus H1 : σ 2 = 1. 2555. 509. 05 level. 01. 044. 14. 612 . 270 . 322 . Notice that the 99% confidence intervals are wider than the 95% confidence intervals. 2 Comparing Proportions in Two or More Populations To compare proportions in two or more populations with reasonably large sample sizes, we use the fact that, as was demonstrated earlier, estimated proportions are well approximated by a normal distribution that can be standardized so that its mean THE CHI-SQUARED DISTRIBUTION 25 is 0 and its variance is 1.

1327; and hence, the complete probability density function can be specified. In this particular instance, it is not useful to employ the recursion given above. 2 Other Properties of the Binomial Distribution If X ∼ b(n, p), then μ = E(X) = np and σ 2 = V ar(X) = np(1 − p). 7497. 8659. 9. 1. 05. f. f. f. f. f. f. 3 Estimation of Proportions in One Population In most applications, we are not interested in estimating the number of successes but rather the proportion, p, of successes that occur. The population binomial proportion is estimated from a random sample by simply dividing the number of events or successes (that is, X) by the total number of trials (that is, n).
