STA644(Non Parametric Statistics)
Assignment # 1
Researchers have conducted a survey of 1600 coffee drinkers asking how much coffee they drink in order to confirm previous studies. Previous studies have indicated that 72% of Americans drink coffee. The results of previous studies (Table #1) and the survey (Table #2) are below.
At α = 0.05, is there enough evidence to conclude that the distributions are the same?
Table # 1

2 cups per week 15%
