Math 10 - Lab 4 – Two Way Tables and Test of IndependenceNames(First and Last) in alphabetical order by last nameIn 2014, researchers from Harvard Business School conducted an experiment on the online rental company Airbnb to explore if there is racial discrimination. Airbnb allows owners (hosts) to rent out all orpart of their properties to guests. Renters (guests) create a profile on Airbnb and hosts are allowed to accept or reject potential renters. The researchers created 20 profiles on AIrbnb that were identical in every way except for name. Based on hospital birth records from 1974 to 1979, 10 "distinctively white" names were chosen and 10 "distinctively African-American (black)" names were chosen. Each of these groups had 5 male and 5 female names. No photos were added to these 20 profiles. From 5 randomly geographically disperse metropolitan areas, the researchers had these 20 profiles attempt to rent approximately 6400 similar properties listed on Airbnb for dates about two months in the future.
