Permissio required required for reproductio for reproductio or display. or display Cofidece Itervals for the Mea Whe Is Kow A poit estimate is a specific umerical value estimate of a parameter. The best poit estimate of the populatio mea µ is the sample mea X. Three Properties of a Good Estimator 1. The estimator should be a ubiased estimator. That is, the expected value or the mea of the estimates obtaied from samples of a give size is equal to the parameter beig estimated. Three Properties of a Good Estimator. The estimator should be cosistet. For a cosistet estimator, as sample size icreases, the value of the estimator approaches the value of the parameter estimated

2 8/7/015 Three Properties of a Good Estimator 3. The estimator should be a relatively efficiet estimator; that is, of all the statistics that ca be used to estimate a parameter, the relatively efficiet estimator has the smallest variace. Cofidece Itervals for the Mea Whe Is Kow A iterval estimate of a parameter is a iterval or a rage of values used to estimate the parameter. This estimate may or may ot cotai the value of the parameter beig estimated. Cofidece Level of a Iterval Estimate The cofidece level of a iterval estimate of a parameter is the probability that the iterval estimate will cotai the parameter, assumig that a large umber of samples are selected ad that the estimatio process o the same parameter is repeated Cofidece Iterval A cofidece iterval is a specific iterval estimate of a parameter determied by usig data obtaied from a sample ad by usig the specific cofidece level of the estimate. Formula for the Cofidece Iterval of the Mea for a Specific a X za/ X za/ For a 90% cofidece iterval: z a / 1.65 For a 95% cofidece iterval: z a / 1.96 For a 99% cofidece iterval: z a /.58 Margi of error The margi of error, also called the maximum error of the estimate, is the maximum likely differece betwee the poit estimate of a parameter ad the actual value of the parameter Bluma, 1

Whe you are computig a cofidece iterval for a populatio mea by usig a sample mea ad a stadard deviatio, roud off to the same umber of decimal places as give for the mea. Sectio 7-1 Example 7-1 Page # Example 7-1: Days to Sell a Aveo A researcher wishes to estimate the umber of days it takes a automobile dealer to sell a Chevrolet Aveo. A sample of 50 cars had a mea time o the dealer s lot of 54 days. Assume the populatio stadard deviatio to be 6.0 days. Fid the best poit estimate of the populatio mea ad the 95% cofidece iterval of the populatio mea. The best poit estimate of the mea is 54 days. X 54, 6.0, 50,95% z 1.96 X z X z a a Example 7-1: Days to Sell a Aveo X 54, 6.0, 50,95% z 1.96 X z X z a a Oe ca say with 95% cofidece that the iterval betwee 5 ad 56 days cotais the populatio mea, based o a sample of 50 automobiles. Sectio 7-1 Example 7- Page #

Assume that the stadard deviatio is 9.6 ad a radom sample of 40 hours was used to determie the average. Fid the 99% cofidece iterval of the populatio mea. Example 7-: Number of Customers 95% Cofidece Iterval of the Mea Hece, oe ca be 99% cofidet (roudig values) that the mea umber of customers that the store averages is betwee 350 ad 374 customers per hour % Cofidece Iterval of the Mea Fidig z a for 98% CL.

Fid the 90% cofidece iterval of the mea Example 7-3: Credit Uio Assets Step 1: Fid the mea ad stadard deviatio. Usig techology, we fid X = ad s = Assume Step : Fid α/. 90% CL α/ = Step 3: Fid z α/. 90% CL α/ = 0.05 z.05 = 1.65 Example 7-3: Credit Uio Assets Step 4: Substitute i the formula. X z X z a a Oe ca be 90% cofidet that the populatio mea of the assets of all credit uios is betwee $6.75 millio ad $ millio, based o a sample of 30 credit uios Commet to computers ad calculator users This chapter ad subsequet chapters iclude examples usig raw data. If you are usig computer or calculator programs to fid the solutios, the aswers you get may vary somewhat from the oes give i the textbook. This is so because computers ad calculators do ot roud the aswers i the itermediate steps ad ca use 1 or more decimal places for computatio. Also, they use more exact values tha those give i the tables i the back of this book. These discrepacies are part ad parcel of statistics. Formula for Miimum Needed for a Iterval Estimate of the Populatio Mea z a where E is the margi of error. If ecessary, roud the aswer up to obtai a whole umber. That is, if there is ay fractio or decimal portio i the aswer, use the ext whole umber for sample size. E Sectio 7-1 Example 7-4 Page #

6 8/7/015 Example 7-4: Depth of a River A scietist wishes to estimate the average depth of a river. He wats to be 99% cofidet that the estimate is accurate withi feet. From a previous study, the stadard deviatio of the depths measured was 4.33 feet. How large a sample is required? a = 0.01(or , za/ =,58 ad E = z a E Therefore, to be 99% cofidet that the estimate is withi feet of the true mea depth, the scietist eeds at least a sample of 3 measuremets Cofidece Itervals for the Mea Whe Is Ukow The value of, whe it is ot kow, must be estimated by usig s, the stadard deviatio of the sample. Whe s is used, especially whe the sample size is small (less tha 30), critical values greater tha the values for z a are used i cofidece itervals i order to keep the iterval at a give level, such as the 95%. These values are take from the Studet t distributio, most ofte called the t distributio. Characteristics of the t Distributio The t distributio is similar to the stadard ormal distributio i these ways: 1. It is bell-shaped.. It is symmetric about the mea. 3. The mea, media, ad mode are equal to 0 ad are located at the ceter of the distributio. 4. The curve ever touches the x axis Characteristics of the t Distributio The t distributio differs from the stadard ormal distributio i the followig ways: 1. The variace is greater tha 1.. The t distributio is actually a family of curves based o the cocept of degrees of freedom, which is related to sample size. 3. As the sample size icreases, the t distributio approaches the stadard ormal distributio. Degrees of Freedom The symbol d.f. will be used for degrees of freedom. The degrees of freedom for a cofidece iterval for the mea are foud by subtractig 1 from the sample size. That is, d.f. = 1. Note: For some statistical tests used later i this book, the degrees of freedom are ot equal to 1. Sectio 7- Example 7-5 Page #

Sectio 7- Example 7-6 Page # Example 7-6: Ifat Growth A radom sample of 10 childre foud that their average growth for the first year was 9.8 iches. Assume the variable is ormally distributed ad the sample stadard deviatio is 0.96 ich. Fid the 95% cofidece iterval of the populatio mea for growth durig the first year. Therefore, oe ca be 95% cofidet that the populatio mea of the first-year growth is betwee 9.11 ad iches Sectio 7- Example 7-7 Page #377 Example 7-7: Home Fires by Cadles The data represet a sample of the umber of home fires started by cadles for the past several years. Fid the 99% cofidece iterval for the mea umber of home fires started by cadles each year Step 1: Fid the mea ad stadard deviatio. The mea is X = ad stadard deviatio s = Step : Fid t α/ i Table F.

A previous study shows that 40% of those iterviewed had a computer at home. The researcher wishes to be accurate withi % of the true proportio. Fid the miimum sample size ecessary. z 1.96 ˆˆ a pq E 0.0 The researcher should iterview a sample of at least 305 people. Sectio 7-3 Example 7-1 Page # Example 7-1: Home Computers I Example 7-11 assume that o pervious study was doe. Fid the miimum sample size ecessary to be accurate withi % of the true populatio. Here ˆp = 0.5 ad ˆq = people must be iterviewed whe ˆp is ukow. This is 96 more people eeded if ˆp is kow 7-4 Cofidece Itervals for Variaces ad Stadard Deviatios Whe products that fit together (such as pipes) are maufactured, it is importat to keep the variatios of the diameters of the products as small as possible; otherwise, they will ot fit together properly ad will have to be scrapped. I the maufacture of medicies, the variace ad stadard deviatio of the medicatio i the pills play a importat role i makig sure patiets receive the proper dosage. For these reasos, cofidece itervals for variaces ad stadard deviatios are ecessary. Chi-Square Distributios The chi-square distributio must be used to calculate cofidece itervals for variaces ad stadard deviatios. The chi-square variable is similar to the t variable i that its distributio is a family of curves based o the umber of degrees of freedom. The symbol for chi-square is (Greek letter chi, proouced ki ). A chi-square variable caot be egative, ad the distributios are skewed to the right

11 8/7/015 Chi-Square Distributios At about 100 degrees of freedom, the chi-square distributio becomes somewhat symmetric. The area uder each chi-square distributio is equal to 1.00, or 100%. Example 7-13: Usig Table G Use the 0.95 ad 0.05 colums ad the row correspodig to 4 d.f. i Table G. Sectio 7-4 Example 7-13 Page #393 The value is ; the value is right left Example 7-13: Usig Table G Fid the values for right ad left for a 90% cofidece iterval whe = 5.

To fid right, subtract = Divide by to get To fid left, subtract to get I Table G, the 0.05 ad colums with the d.f. 19 row yield values of 3.85 ad 8.907, respectively. Example 7-14: Nicotie Cotet 1 s 1 s right left You ca be 95% cofidet that the true variace for the icotie cotet is betwee 1.5 ad 5.5 milligrams You ca be 95% cofidet that the true stadard deviatio is betwee 1. ad.3 milligrams Sectio 7-4 Example 7-15 Page #395 Example 7-15: Named Storms Fid the 90% cofidece iterval for the variace ad stadard deviatio for the umber of amed storms per year i the Atlatic basi. A radom sample of 10 years has bee used. Assume the distributio is approximately ormal Usig techology, we fid the variace of the data is s = I Table G, the 0.05 ad 0.95 colums with the d.f. 9 row yield a value of ad 3.35, respectively. Example 7-15: Named Storms You ca be 90% cofidet that the true variace for the cost of ski lift tickets is betwee 15.0 ad You ca be 95% cofidet that the stadard deviatio is betwee 3.0 ad 6.8 for amed storms i a sample 10 years
