Question: interested in social justice if so one difficulty youll face...

Question details

Interested in social justice? If so, one difficulty you’ll face is exposure. Even in today’s social-media-obsessed and news-heavy climate, it is difficult to get a large percentage of the population to know about a given issue. As an example, in May 2018 Glamour and GQ magazines co-conducted a poll to see what percentage of men had heard of the #meToo movement. Shockingly, 41% of the 1147 men (aged 18 to 55) reported that they had never heard of this!

a. What margin of error should the pollsters report assuming they are using approximate 95% CIs?

b. Another challenge you face with social justice issues is people’s unwillingness to participate in surveys. If a random American man (aged 18 to 55) has a 7% chance of agreeing to your interview, how many people do you expect to reach out to if your goal is to have 1147 respondents? (A non-integer answer is possible.)
