Overview of Randomization test for 1-sample proportion

Use Randomization test for 1-sample proportion to compare the proportion of a population to a target value or reference value. You can also use Randomization test for 1-sample proportion to illustrate important statistical concepts.

For example, an editor of a video game web site wants to determine whether the proportion of readers that own a PlayStation console is greater than 0.5.
  • The p-value measures the evidence against the null hypothesis so that the editor can decide whether the proportion is greater than 0.5.
  • The histogram shows the variation and shape of the sampling distribution.
  • Resampling techniques can show the effect of sample size on the sampling distribution.
