For a large supermarket chain in Florida, a women’s group claimed that female employees were passed over for management training in favor of their male colleagues. The company denied this claim, saying they picked the employees from the eligible pool at random to receive this training. Statewide, the large pool of more than 1000 eligible employees who can be tapped for management training is 40% female and 60% male. Since this program began, 28 of the 40 employees chosen for management training were male and 12 were female.
a. In a significance test, the random sampling assumption is the claim of the company. In defining hypotheses, explain why this company’s claim of a lack of gender bias is a no effect hypothesis. State the null and alternative hypotheses for a test to investigate the strength of evidence to support the women’s claim.
b. The table shows results of using MINITAB to do a large-sample analysis. Explain why the large-sample analysis is justified, and show how software obtained the test statistic value.
