Hispanic Voters Simulation (1-prop z)
- Steve Phelps
According to the 2010 U.S. Census, 11.7% of the people in the state of Oregon were Hispanic or Latino. A political party wants to know how much impact the Hispanic and Latino vote will have, so they wonder if that percentage has changed since then. They take a random sample of 853 adults in Oregon and ask, among other things, their race. 113 of the people surveyed were Hispanic or Latino. Can the political party conclude that the Hispanic proportion of the population has changed since 2010? Each dot in the dot plot represents the number of Hispanic or Latino voters out of a random sample of 853, under the assumption that 11.7% of the people in the state of Oregon were Hispanic or Latino.
