An organization is studying whether women have caught up to men in starting pay after attending college. They randomly sampled 28 women, who earned an average of $38,293.78 out of college with a standard deviation of $5,170.22. Twenty-four men were also randomly sampled, and their earnings averaged $41,981.82 with a standard deviation of $3,195.42. Using a significance level of 0.02, do these data provide strong evidence that women have not yet caught up to men in terms of pay? If so, can we make a causal con- clusion? If so, explain why. If not, provide an example of why the causal interpretation would not be valid.

  • Statistics -

    Z = (mean1 - mean2)/standard error (SE) of difference between means

    SEdiff = √(SEmean1^2 + SEmean2^2)

    SEm = SD/√n

    If only one SD is provided, you can use just that to determine SEdiff.

    Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion related to the Z score.
