               Inference On The Difference Of Two Percents


Notation


   πi = percent of successes in population i
   pi = percent of successes in sample i


1. The two samples are taken from two independent populations.
2. The samples taken from each population are large. For each
   sample np > 500 and n(100-p) > 500. This reduces to having a
   minimum of five successes and five failures in each sample.

                            ( p1 - p 2 )
Test statistic: z =
                              p -p
                                  1    2




                                                               

Confidence interval (1 - 2): (p1 - p2) ± z/2  p  p            1   2




The standard error of the difference between percentages:

            1(100  1)  2(100  2)
 p p                           
   1   2
                   n1                       n2

The estimator  p  p :
               ˆ        1     2




              p 1 (100  p 1 ) p 2 (100  p 2 )
 p p 
 ˆ                            
   1   2
                    n1               n2

Ex: Grady Gallagher was "interested in the difference in the
percent of deaths of chicks. I am interested in the difference of the
death rate for the chicks on a feed called Cage Crumbles compared
to the death rate of chicks that are on a feed called Chick Starter."
In a sample of 50 chicks feed Cage Crumbles, 15 died; of 50
chicks feed Chick Starter, 6 perished.

Ex Danny Lessley "obtained my data from asking 60 people on
campus between the ages of eighteen and twenty-two if they were
a smoker of cigarettes or not. When I say regular smoker I mean at
least three cigarettes a day. I sampled thirty males and thirty
females."
