P-value = Pr(≥ 74.5) = virtually 0. Or: χ 2 * = = = 12.6 Both p-value < α and χ 2 > χ 2 * (extremely so!) so we strongly reject H 0 . The data provide strong evidence for statistically significant dependence between the qualitative variables, boss/employee gender relationship and job satisfaction. 10

Scenario 10. Air Bags in Automobiles The following “ancient” data set from 1993 examines the presence of air bags in automobiles. Is there a relationship between the type of vehicle and what level of air bag implementation is standard equipment? AIR BAGS TYPE None Driver only Driver and passenger Total Small 16 5 0 21 Sporty 3 8 3 14 Compact 5 9 2 16 Midsize 4 11 7 22 Large 0 7 4 11 Van 6 3 0 9 Total 34 43 16 93 SOLUTION: Chi-square test of independence H o : Type of vehicle and airbag implementation are independent. H a : Type of vehicle and airbag implementation are dependent. For the 6x3 (full) table: Chi-square stat = 33.00 (10 df); P-value = .0003 Collapse categories as follows: Small+Sporty+Compact, Midsize+Large, Van Adding the cell counts gives the following: AIR BAGS TYPE None Driver only Driver and passenger Total Small/Sporty/ Compact 24 22 5 51 Midsize/Large 4 18 11 33 Van 6 3 0 9 Total 34 43 16 93 For this 3x3 full table: Chi-square stat = 18.24 (4 df); P-value = .0011 Combining Driver only + Driver and passenger gives the following: TYPE None Driver or Driver & passenger Total Small/Sporty/ Compact 24 27 51 Midsize/Large 4 29 33 Van 6 3 9 Total 34 59 93 For this 3x2 full table: Chi-square stat = 14.44 (2 df); P-value = .0007 Conclusion: There is a relationship between type of vehicle and airbag implementation. Larger cars are much more likely to have airbags; vans are different from larger cars, and are not likely to have airbags, especially on the passenger side. 11

Scenario 11. Diet and Cholesterol A doctor investigating the effectiveness of different dietary advice in reducing blood cholesterol levels (mg/100ml) measured the levels before giving advice and again at the end of a six-month trial. A total of 19 subjects were randomly given certain dietary advice and their levels are shown below. Is there any difference in the relative effectiveness of the two types of advice given?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
