Statistics 511 Statistical Methods Purdue University Dr Levine Fall 2006 Lecture 16 Tests about a Population Proportion Devore Section 83 Aug 2006 Statistics 511 Statistical Methods Purdue University Dr Levine Fall 2006 LargeSample Tests 0 Letp denote the proportion of individuals or objects in a population who possess a specified property thus each object either possesses a desired property 8 or it doesn t F 0 Consider a simple random sample X1 7Xn If the sample size n is small relative to the population size the number of successes in the sample X has an approximately binomial distribution If n itself is also large both X and the sample proportion 13 Xn are approximately normally distributed a Largesample tests concerning p are a special case of the more general largesample procedures for an arbitrary parameter 6 We considered such a largesample test before for the mean u of an arbitrary distribution Aug 2006 Statistics 511 Statistical Methods Purdue University Dr Levine Fall 2006 0 Some basic properties of are 1 Estimator is unbiased E13 p 2 Second it is approximately normal and its standard deviation SD is Up p1 pn 3 Note that 013 does not include any unknown parameters This is not always the case It is enough to remember the largesample test of the mean where 0 0X 0271 2 which is in general unknown unless 0 is specified Aug 2006 Statistics 511 Statistical Methods Purdue University Dr Levine Fall 2006 a Let us consider first an uppertailed test It means having a null hypothesis H0 p p0 vs an alternative Ha p gt 1 0 Under the null hypothesis we have E p0 and 0p xp01 p0n therefore for large n the test statistic i3 290 1901 p0n has approximately standard normal distribution a The rejection region is clearly z 2 za for a test of approximately level 05 Aug 2006 Statistics 511 Statistical Methods Purdue University Dr Levine Fall 2006 o The lowertailed test has a rejection region z g Za a The twotailed test has a rejection region 2 2052 The last expression is a concise way of saying that z 2 Zag or 2 g za2 0 These tests are applicable whenever the normal approximation of the binomial distribution is reasonable npo 2 10 n1 p0 gt 10 Aug 2006 Statistics 511 Statistical Methods Purdue University Dr Levine Fall 2006 Example 0 Consider example 811 from Devore The null hypothesis here is thatp 03 The alternative would be p gt 30 a Note that the rule of thumb is satisfied npo 41153 gt 10 abd n1 p0 41157 gt 10 0 Thus we use the largesample test with Z I 13 3 37n a For a significance level 05 1 we use za 128 The sample proportion i513 12764115 310 Plugging this value in z we obtain 140 gt 128 Thus the null hypothesis is rejected Aug 2006 Statistics 511 Statistical Methods Purdue University Dr Levine Fall 2006 Type II Error and sample size determination a Type II Error probability can be computed exactly as before If H0 is not true the true proportion p pl 7 p0 Under Ha p pl we have Z is still approximately normal however EltZgt pl p0 1901 P0n and 29 1 p n VltZgt 1901 P0n Aug 2006 Statistics 511 Statistical Methods Purdue University Dr Levine Fall 2006 o The formulas for the type II error are very similar to what we saw before for the mean test We only give the uppertailed test formula Ha p gt p0 I p0pZa P01 P0n pu pvn and the lowertailed test formula Ha p lt p0 po pl ZQ po1 pon 1 Q pu pvn a Sample size formulas can also be easily derived In the twotailed case the formula is approximate as before Aug 2006 Statistics 511 Statistical Methods Purdue University Dr Levine Fall 2006 Example 0 Consider example 812 from Devore The null hypothesis is H0 19 09 vs Ha p lt 09 How likely is it thata test of level 01 based on n 225 packages detect a departure of 10 from the null value a Forp 08 we have MB1 8 233BXJVm5 r8r2225 0228 0 Thus the probability of type II error under the alternative pl 08 is about 23 Aug 2006 Statistics 511 Statistical Methods Purdue University Dr Levine Fall 2006 Small Sample tests 0 These are test procedures for proportions when the sample size n is small They are based directly on the binomial distribution rather than the normal approximation 0 Consider the alternative hypothesis Ha p gt p0 and let X be yet again the number of successes in the sample size n For a test level 05 we find the rejection region from PX 2 cwhen X N Binnp0 1 PX g c 1 when X N Binnp0 1 Bc 1np0 Aug 2006 Statistics 511 Statistical Methods Purdue University Dr Levine Fall 2006 a It is usually not possible to find an exact value of C in this case the usual way out is to use the largest rejection region of the form 6 C 1 n satisfying the bound on the Type I error a To compute the Type II error for an alternative pl gt 190 we first note that X N Binnpl if the alternative is true Then mp PX lt cwhen X N Binnpl Bc 1npl Note that this is a result of a straightforward binomial probability calculation Aug 2006 Statistics 511 Statistical Methods Purdue University Dr Levine Fall 2006 Example 0 A builder claims that heat pumps are installed in 70 of all homes being constructed today in the city of Richmond VA Would you agree with this claim if a random survey of new homes in this city shows that 8 out of 15 had heat pumps installed Use a 01 level of significance 0 H0 19 07vs Ha p lt 07with Oz 010 o The test statistic is X N Bin07 15 Aug 2006 Statistics 511 Statistical Methods Purdue University Dr Levine Fall 2006
