# d.prop: d for Independent Proportions In MOTE: Effect Size and Confidence Interval Calculator

## Description

This function displays d and central confidence interval calculated from differences in independent proportions. Independent proportions are two percentages that are from different groups of participants.

## Usage

 `1` ```d.prop(p1, p2, n1, n2, a = 0.05) ```

## Arguments

 `p1` proportion for group one `p2` proportion for group two `n1` sample size group one `n2` sample size group two `a` significance level

## Details

To calculate z, the proportion of group two is substracted from group one, which is then divided by the standard error.

z = (p1 - p2) / se

To calculate d, the proportion of group two is divided by the standard error of group two which is then subtracted from the proportion of group one divided by the standard error of group one.

z1 = p1 / se1

z2 = p2 / se2

d = z1 - z2

## Examples

 ``` 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16``` ```#Several researchers were examining the data on the number #of students who retake a course after they receive a D, F, #or withdraw from the course. They randomly sampled form #a large university two groups of students: traditional #(less than 25 years old) and non-traditional (25 and older). #Each group included 100 participants. About 25% of students #of the traditional group reported they would retake a course, #while the non-traditional group showed about 35% would #retake the course. #You can type in the numbers directly as shown below, #or refer to your dataset within the function. d.prop(p1 = .25, p2 = .35, n1 = 100, n2 = 100, a = .05) d.prop(.25, .35, 100, 100, .05) ```
