This module provides a practice on Chi-Square Distribution as a part of Collaborative Statistics collection (col10522) by Barbara Illowsky and Susan Dean.

Student learning outcomes

  • The student will conduct a goodness-of-fit test.

Given

The following data are real. The cumulative number of AIDS cases reported for Santa Clara County is broken down by ethnicity as follows:(Source: HIV/AIDS Epidemiology Santa Clara County, Santa Clara County Public Health Department, May 2011 )

Ethnicity Number of Cases
Total = 4075
White 2229
Hispanic 1157
Black/African-American 457
Asian, Pacific Islander 232

The percentage of each ethnic group in Santa Clara County is as follows:

Ethnicity Percentage of total county population Number expected (round to 2 decimal places)
Total = 100%
White 42.9% 1748.18
Hispanic 26.7%
Black/African-American 2.6%
Asian, Pacific Islander 27.8%

Expected results

If the ethnicity of AIDS victims followed the ethnicity of the total county population, fill in the expected number of cases per ethnic group.

Goodness-of-fit test

Perform a goodness-of-fit test to determine whether the make-up of AIDS cases follows the ethnicity of the general population of Santa Clara County.
