Difference in Proportions Test
The Difference in Proportions Test for Two Proportions Calculator allows you to test for a statistically significant difference between two proportions drawn from independent samples.
For example, if 85% of Americans in the north are online and 77% of Americans in the south are online is that difference real or the result of random chance?
To determine if the difference is significant follow these steps:
- Plug in the sample size for each of the independent groups.
- Plug in the proportions that you wish to test.
- Select a confidence level.
- Click on Calculate.
Note: this procedure can be validly employed only if both samples satisfy the standard binomial requierement that n*p and n(1-p) must both be equal to or greater than 5, where n=samples size and p=percentage.
