    Hi,
    <br>
    <br>As was written in the sheet:

    <br>The population proportionate is the fraction of values in a population, which have a specific ...

    Solution Summary

    Assume the following data represent a population of 50 values. Values equal
    to 1 indicate that a particular attribute is present, a value equal to 0 indicates the attribute is not present.
    1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 0
    0 1 1 0 0 1 1 1 0 1
    0 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 0
    1 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 1 1
    0 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1
    a. Compute the population proportion.
    The population proportionate is the fraction of values in a population, which have a specific attribute. Population proportionate = X number of items having the attribute divided by N, the population size.
    b. A random sample of 15 items produced the following numbers: 1 1 1 0 0 1 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 1 0. Compute the sample proportion and the sampling error present in your sample.
    c. What is the range of extreme sampling error for a sample of 15 taken from this population?
    d. How would the range of extreme sampling error change if the sample size was set to 30? Discuss the advantages of having a larger sample size.
