Read/review the following resources for this activity:
The highlight of this week's lab is confidence intervals and the use of these intervals in the health sciences. There is a short reading that specifically relates confidence intervals to health sciences and then you are asked to demonstrate your knowledge of confidence intervals by applying them in a practical manner.
The deliverable is a Word document with your answers to the questions posed below based on the article you find.
Steps to Complete the Week 7 Lab
Step 1: Find these articles in the Chamberlain Library. Once you click each link, you will be logged into the Library and then click on "PDF Full Text".
Step 2: Consider the use of confidence intervals in health sciences with these articles as inspiration and insights.
Step 3: Using the data you collected for the Week 5 Lab (heights of 10 different people that you work with), discuss your method of collection for the values that you are using in your study. What are some faults with this type of data collection? What other type of data collection could you have used, and how might this have affected your study?
Step 4: Now use the Week 6 Spreadsheet to help you with calculations for the following questions/statements.
Step 5: Now, find a 99% confidence interval for the same data. Would the margin of error be larger or smaller for the 99% CI? Explain your reasoning.
Step 6: Save the Week 7 Lab document with your answers and include your name in the title.
Step 7: Submit the document.
