during the month of July, an auto manufacturer gives its production employees a vacation period so it can tool up for the new model run. In surveying a simple random sample of 200 production workers, the personnel director finds that 38% of them plan to vacation out of state for at least one week during this period. Is this a point estimate or an interval estimate? Explain

  • statistics -

    In statistics, interval estimation is the use of sample data to calculate an interval of possible (or probable) values of an unknown population parameter, in contrast to point estimation, which is a single number.

    This should be helpful. Thanks for asking.
