Question: The authors of the paper Adolescents and MP3 Players Too
The authors of the paper “Adolescents and MP3 Players: Too Many Risks, Too Few Precautions” (Pediatrics : e953–e958) concluded that more boys than girls listen to music at high volumes. This conclusion was based on data from independent random samples of 764 Dutch boys and 748 Dutch girls age 12 to 19. Of the boys, 397 reported that they almost always listen to music at a high volume setting. Of the girls, 331 reported listening to music at a high volume setting. Do the sample data support the authors’ conclusion that the proportion of Dutch boys who listen to music at high volume is greater than this proportion for Dutch girls? Test the relevant hypotheses using a .01 significance level.
