Gallup found in 2013 that 58% of Americans worry a great deal or a fair amount about global warming, up from 55% in 2012. Results for this Gallup poll were based on telephone interviews performed on March $7-10,2013$, with a random sample of 1022 adults, aged 18 and older, living in the United States. Does the increase from 2012 to 2013 show a substantial increase in concern?

c) Perform the test and find the $P$-value.

Solution

VerifiedIn this item, we are given a scenario where a study in 2013 found that the proportion of Americans worrying with a great deal or fair amount about global warming is $0.58$. This proportion is then up from the previous proportion of $0.55$ in 2012. The study was then conducted with a sample of $1022$ adults chosen randomly.

As such, we denote the following values.

- $p_0=0.55$
- $\hat p=0.58$
- $n=1022$

For this item, we are then tasked to conduct a <span style="color: #4257B2">one-proportion $z$-test</span> to determine whether the increase in proportion from 2012 to 2013 is significant.

For this part, we are now tasked to perform the mechanics of the test. That is, we are to calculate the $z$ test statistic and find its corresponding $p-value$.

*What are the two formulas to calculate the $z$-test statistic?*
