A 2011 survey, by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, reported that 91% of Americans have paid leave. In January 2012, a random survey of 1000 workers showed that 89% had paid leave.

The resulting p-value is 0.0271; thus, the null hypothesis is rejected. It is concluded that there has been a decrease in the proportion of people, who have paid leave from 2011 to January 2012.

What type of error is possible in this situation?

  • type I
  • type II
  • neither
  • both

The average wait time to get seated at a popular restaurant in the city on a Friday night is 9 minutes.  Is the mean wait time less for men who wear a tie? Wait times for 12 randomly selected men who were wearing a tie are shown below. Assume that the distribution of the population is normal.

8, 8, 6, 8, 7, 8, 9, 10, 7, 8, 6, 9

What can be concluded at the the αα = 0.05 level of significance level of significance?

  1. For this study, we should use Select an answer t-test for a population mean z-test for a population proportion 
  2. The null and alternative hypotheses would be:     

H0:H0:  ? μ p  Select an answer ≠ > = <    

H1:H1:  ? p μ  Select an answer ≠ < > =    

  1. The test statistic ? t z  =  (please show your answer to 3 decimal places.)
  2. The p-value =  (Please show your answer to 4 decimal places.)
  3. The p-value is ? ≤ >  αα
  4. Based on this, we should Select an answer accept reject fail to reject  the null hypothesis.
  5. Thus, the final conclusion is that …
    • The data suggest the population mean is not significantly less than 9 at αα = 0.05, so there is statistically insignificant evidence to conclude that the population mean wait time for men who wear a tie is equal to 9.
    • The data suggest the populaton mean is significantly less than 9 at αα = 0.05, so there is statistically significant evidence to conclude that the population mean wait time for men who wear a tie is less than 9.
    • The data suggest that the population mean wait time for men who wear a tie is not significantly less than 9 at αα = 0.05, so there is statistically insignificant evidence to conclude that the population mean wait time for men who wear a tie is less than 9.

What can be concluded at the the αα = 0.10 level of significance level of significance?

  1. For this study, we should use Select an answer z-test for a population proportion t-test for a population mean 
  2. The null and alternative hypotheses would be:     

H0:H0:  ? μ p  Select an answer ≠ < > =    

H1:H1:  ? p μ  Select an answer ≠ = > <    

  1. The test statistic ? t z  =  (please show your answer to 3 decimal places.)
  2. The p-value =  (Please show your answer to 4 decimal places.)
  3. The p-value is ? ≤ >  αα
  4. Based on this, we should Select an answer fail to reject reject accept  the null hypothesis.
  5. Thus, the final conclusion is that …
    • The data suggest the populaton mean is significantly different from 64 at αα = 0.10, so there is sufficient evidence to conclude that the population mean retirement age for small business owners is different from 64.
    • The data suggest the population mean is not significantly different from 64 at αα = 0.10, so there is sufficient evidence to conclude that the population mean retirement age for small business owners is equal to 64.
    • The data suggest the population mean retirement age for small business owners is not significantly different from 64 at αα = 0.10, so there is insufficient evidence to conclude that the population mean retirement age for small business owners is different from 64.

  4. Based on this, we should Select an answer reject fail to reject accept  the null hypothesis.
  5. Thus, the final conclusion is that …
    • The data suggest the populaton proportion is significantly higher than 14% at αα = 0.05, so there is statistically significant evidence to conclude that the the percentage of all registered voters who will vote in the upcoming election will be higher than 14%.
    • The data suggest the population proportion is not significantly higher than 14% at αα = 0.05, so there is statistically insignificant evidence to conclude that the percentage of registered voters who will vote in the upcoming election will be higher than 14%.
    • The data suggest the population proportion is not significantly higher than 14% at αα = 0.05, so there is statistically significant evidence to conclude that the percentage of registered voters who will vote in the upcoming election will be equal to 14%.
