Marketing Research Sample Size Calculator

Sample Size Calculator Terms: Confidence Interval & Confidence Level The confidence interval (also called margin of error) is the plus-or-minus figure usually reported in newspaper or television opinion poll results. For example, if you use a confidence interval of 4 and 47% percent of your sample picks an answer you can be "sure" that if you had asked the question of the entire relevant population between 43% (47-4) and 51% (47+4) would have picked that answer. The confidence level tells you...

Sampling Distribution of the Sample Mean

PROBABILITY AND STATISTICS Lab, Seminar, Lecture 4. Behavior of the sample average X-bar  The topic of 4th seminar&lab is the average of the population that has a certain characteristic.  This average is the population parameter of interest, denoted by the greek letter mu.  We estimate this parameter with the statistic x-bar, the average in the sample. Probability and statistics - Karol Flisikowski X-bar Definition 1 x   xi n i 1 Probability and statistics - Karol Flisikowski ...

Multiple Sample Hypothesis

Running head: MULTIPLE SAMPLE HYPOTHESIS TESTING Multiple Sample Hypothesis Testing RES342: Research 11 June 14, 2010 Multiple Sample Hypothesis Testing The purpose of this paper is to create a hypothesis based on two-sample tests. Two-sample tests compare two sample estimates with each other, whereas one-sample tests compare a sample estimate with a non-sample benchmark (Doane & Seward, 2007). The learning team has chosen to create a hypothesis testing using the wages and wage earners...

Research Sample Size

Sample size The process of determining the proper sample size was established through a series of calculations and after obtaining all the possible sample sizes, the largest one was taken into consideration to collect the closest number to a representative sample of the population. The following two equations where used: Equation 1: N=z2 *(p.q) E2 N= sample size Z=level of confidence interval at 95% so z=1.96 P=estimated percent of population E=acceptable sample error expressed...

Hypothesis Testing: Two-Sample Case for the Mean

Hypothesis Testing: Two-Sample Case for the Mean Many cases in the social sciences involve a hypothesis about the difference between two groups (i.e. men and women, control and experiment). We analyze statistics from two samples, and the hypothesis and confidence interval would deal with the difference between two population means. The following factors are important in hypothesis testing: 1. probability theory 2. the sampling distribution of the statistic 3. the errors inherent...
