Unformatted text preview: be a 2 × 2 table of expected counts.) (b) State the assumptions made by the chisquared test. For each assumption, state whether or not it is satisﬁed by our data. (c) State the hypotheses for the chisquared test. (d) Calculate the value of the Chisquare test statistic, χ 2 . (e) In the following step, we will compare this observed χ 2 value to a chisquared distribution. What df should this chisquared distribution have? (f) Find the pvalue as best you can (i.e., “between 0.025 and 0.05”) using a chisquared table or any other method of your choice. (g) Use this pvalue to make a decision, and interpret this decision in the context of the actual variables. (Your interpretation should be understandable by someone who doesn’t know anything about this data or about statistics in general.)...
