**Report**

You need to type up a short report (maximum of 700 words), describing:

1) The population of interest.

2) The characteristic of interest that you chose, and why it is interesting.

3) How the sample was chosen from the population.

4) Summary statistics that describe the data.

5) An estimate of a proportion of the population, calculated from the sample.

6) A confidence interval for the estimate of the population proportion.

7) An explanation of what the confidence interval means.

8) The sample size necessary to narrow the confidence interval to ±1%.

**Submitting**

Upload the pdf of your report to the Moodle page.
