In the Health ABC Study, 540 subjects owned a pet and 1965 subjects did not. Among the pet owners, there were 300 women; 987 of the non-pet owners were women. Find the proportion of pet owners who were women. Do the same for the non-pet owners. (Be sure to let Population 1 correspond to the group with the higher proportion so that the difference will be positive. Round your answers to three decimal places.)

 p̂1 = p̂2 =

Give a 95% confidence interval for the difference in the two proportions. (Do not use rounded values. Round your final answers to three decimal places.)
