Conducting a hypothesis test using proportions

Conducting a Hypothesis Test

Using Proportions


Conducting a hypothesis test using proportions

Note: a proportion is the same as the percentage of the population


Conducting a hypothesis test using proportions

Formula for the z test

for proportions:

( X – µ )

( X – np )

z =

or

σ

√npq

Where:

µ =

np

σ =

√(npq)

q =

1 – p


Conducting a hypothesis test using proportions

Steps for Hypothesis Test

State the null and alternative hypotheses (using p)

1)

2)

Find the mean and standard deviation

3)

Find the critical value(s) using z-table

4)

Compute the test value

(Round to 2 decimals)

5)

Make the decision to either “reject the null” or “not reject the null”
