Taking Care of Sick Parents.

Taking Care of Sick Parents. Princeton Survey Research Associates of Princeton, New Jersey (1998) conducted an extensive series of surveys designed to assess American values about taking care of each other. One of the questions asked of the respondents in one of these surveys was:

Who should be responsible for taking care of parents if they become sick or disabled?

The respondents were also asked to self-classify themselves as Conservative, Moderate, or Liberal. The tables below are the observed frequency, expected frequency, and the cell contribution.

a). Fill in the empty cells in Table 2 for the expected values.

b). Fill in the empty cells in Table 3 for the contribution of each cell to the chi-square

 ( (observed- expected)^2/expected ).

c), Perform an appropriate test of hypothesis to determine if there is a relationship between political ideology and viewpoint towards taking care of parents if they become sick or disabled?  Use α = .025. Clearly identify the hypothesis you are testing, report the test statistic and state your conclusion.
