Question

In the article "Business Employment Dynamics: New Data on Gross Job Gains and Losses" (Monthly Labor Review, Vol. 127, Issue 4, pp. 29-42), J. Spletzer et al. examined gross job gains and losses as a percentage of the average of previous and current employment figures. A simple random sample of 20 quarters provided the net percentage gains (losses are negative gains) for jobs as presented on the WeissStats CD. Use the technology of your choice to do the following.
a. Decide whether, on average, the net percentage gain for jobs exceeds 0.2. Assume a population standard deviation of 0.42.
Apply the one-mean z-test with a 5% significance level.
b. Obtain a normal probability plot, boxplot, histogram, and stem-and-leaf diagram of the data.
c. Remove the outliers (if any) from the data and then repeat part (a).
d. Comment on the advisability of using the z-test here.
