2-Proportion Z-Test

Hello,

I want to compare, with 2-Proportion Z-Test, the number of student visits to school nurse office in Q1 of 2015 to Q2 of 2015.

What do I use for sample size for Q1 and Q2 when it’s different each month because of new students or students who drop?

You might try using a weighted average. Here it is for Q1:


$\displaystyle p_1 = \dfrac{100+120+105}{4000+4050+4100} = \dfrac{325}{12150} \approx 0.0267 $
Thanks from Scully

Calculating the weighted average makes sense!

To calculate the weighted average, is the numerator this?

(4000×100+4050×120+4100×105)
