Suppose that in the past, 94% of all Hispanic grocery shoppers were women. Perhaps due to changing cultural values, we believe that more Hispanic men are now grocery shopping. We randomly sample 689 Hispanic grocery shoppers from around the United States and 606 are women. Does this result provide enough evidence to conclude that a lower proportion of Hispanic grocery shoppers now are women?

  • Business Statistics -

    606/689 = 88%

  • Business Statistics -

    That does not help at all.

  • Business Statistics -

    Do you think a drop of 6% is significant?
