6. ### Difference between two independent proportions

Hello, I am not a statistician, however, for my latest small research, I would like to test whether there is a difference between two independent groups of samples in terms of proportions (one with a condition and one without a condition). I have researched this problem and find out that...
7. ### Z Test with unknown sample size

How would I conduct a z test when I don't have "n"? The instructor never went over what to do without an "n". It has always been provided. Please help me! The national norm for fifth graders on a standardized test of scientific literacy is 37 (σ = 3). Mrs. Jackson determines that the mean...
8. ### Column proportion (z-test) is equal to 0 or 1

I use SPSS custom tables and column proportions (z-test). This is in the output if the column proportion is equal to 0 or 1, "This category is not used in comparisons because its column proportion is equal to zero or one". This happens when 0% or 100% of respondents select an option. When...
