Please round final answers to four decimal places. 1. (3 pts) In a given population of two-earner male/female couples, male earnings have a mean of $30,000 per year and a standard deviation of $1,000. Female earnings have a mean of $35,000 per year and a standard deviation of $1,800. The correlation between male and female earnings for a couple is 0.80. Let C denote the combined earnings for a randomly selected couple. (a) What is the mean of C? (b) What is the covariance between male and female earnings? (c) What is the standard deviation of C? 2. (3 pts) In survey taken two years ago by all employees of StatsWorld, Inc., 53% of employees were concerned about future health care benefits.

(a) What is the standard error of the sample proportion who are concerned about future health care benefits? (b) What is the probability that the sample proportion concerned is less than 0.5? (c) What is the upper limit of the sample proportion concerned, such that the sample proportion concerned would exceed this value only 3% of the time? 1 EC2303 -Foundations for Econometrics Version: September 17, 2013 3.
