The Centers for Disease Control reported the percentage of people 18 years of age and older who smoke (CDC website, December 14, 2014). Suppose that a study designed to collect new data on smokers and nonsmokers uses a preliminary estimate of the proportion who smoke of 0.30.
a. How large a sample should be taken to estimate the proportion of smokers in the population with a margin of error of 0.02? Use 95% confidence.

Step 1
Solution:
a.
From the given information, confidence level is \(0.95, p=0.30\ and\ E=0.02.\)
\(\displaystyle{1}-\alpha={0.95}\)
\(\displaystyle\alpha={1}-{0.95}\)
\(\displaystyle\alpha={0.05}\)
Step 2
Then,
\(\displaystyle{n}={\left(\frac{{Z}_{{\frac{\alpha}{{2}}}}}{{E}}\right)}^{{2}}{p}{\left({1}-{p}\right)}\)
\(\displaystyle={\left(\frac{{Z}_{{\frac{{0.05}}{{2}}}}}{{0.02}}\right)}^{{2}}{0.30}{\left({1}-{0.30}\right)}\)
\(\displaystyle={\left(\frac{{Z}_{{0.025}}}{{0.02}}\right)}^{{2}}{\left({0.21}\right)}\)
\(\displaystyle={\left(\frac{{1.96}}{{0.02}}\right)}^{{2}}{\left({0.21}\right)}{\left[{U}{\sin{{g}}}{e}{x}{c}{e}{l}{f}{u}{n}{c}{t}{i}{o}{n}={N}{O}{R}{M}.{I}{N}{V}{\left({0.025},{0},{1}\right)}\right]}\)
\(=2016.84\)
\(\displaystyle\approx{2017}\)
Thus, the required sample size is 2017.

The American Journal of Political Science (Apr. 2014) published a study on a woman's impact in mixed-gender deliberating groups. The researchers randomly assigned subjects to one of several 5-member decision-making groups. The groups' gender composition varied as follows: 0 females, 1 female, 2 females, 3 females, 4 females, or 5 females. Each group was the n randomly assigned to utilize one of two types of decision rules: unanimous or majority rule. Ten groups were created for each of the \(6\ \times\ 2=12\) combinations of gender composition and decision rule. One variable of interest, measured for each group, was the number of words spoken by women on a certain topic per 1,000 total words spoken during the deliberations. a. Why is this experiment considered a designed study? b. Identify the experimental unit and dependent variable in this study. c. Identify the factors and treatments for this study.
