a. 0 cells (0.0%) have expected count less than 5. The minimum expected count is 1206.61 Symmetric Measures Value Approximate Significance Nominal by Nominal Phi .162 .000 Cramer’s V .162 .000 N of Valid Cases 47429 Analysis According to the results, the cross tabulations table indicates trust in the police increases as levels of democracy increase. The variables trust in police and democracy are statistically significant at p-value of .05; c2 = (3, N = 47429) = 1242.17, p < .05 (.001). Therefore, we reject the null hypothesis indicating the variables trust in police and democracy are not independent of one another. However, while both variables are statistically significant, the Cramer’s V value of .

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
