The prop.test( ) command performs the chi-square test comparing the two proportions; for the two-sample situation, first enter a vector representing the number of successes in each of the two groups (using the c( ) command to create a column vector), and then a vector representing the number of subjects in each of the two groups.

'Dr. There is also a 'binom.exact( )' function which calculates a confidence interval for a proportion using an exact formula appropriate for small sample sizes. The prop.test( ) procedure will perform the z-test comparing this proportion to the hypothesized value; input for the prop.test is the number of events (36), the total sample size (50), the hypothesized value of the proportion under the null (p=0.50 for a null value of 50%).

For example, in the Age at Walking example, let's test the null hypothesis that 50% of infants start walking by 12 months of age. Note that the CI here does not contain the null value of 0.50, agreeing with the p-value that the percent walking by age 12 is greater than 50%. cohensD(Sodium ~ Instructor, 'Coach McGuirk'  af       1125 'Dr. 'Brendon Small'  d         950                panel.mathdensity(dmath = dnorm, Data = read.table(textConnection(Input),header=TRUE) data:  Sodium by Instructor test that compares the means of two samples.
