Premarital sexual intercourse among American adolescents represents a major public health problem.

Premarital sexual intercourse among American adolescents represents a major public health problem. According to recent data, 47% of high school students and 86% of undergraduate college students report having had sexual intercourse in their life. Currently, the median age of first intercourse in the United States is 16.5 years. Although premarital sexual activity is impacted by a variety of factors, the entertainment media play a significant role and perhaps represent the most easily remediable influence on young people and their sexual attitudes and beliefs. The four major television/cable networks showing music videos are Black Entertainment Television (BET), Music Television (MTV), Music Television 2 (MTV2) and Great American Country (GAC).
A study examined the sexual messages depicted in music videos aired on MTV, MTV2, BET, and GAC from August 2, 2004 to August 15, 2004. One hour segments of music videos were taped daily for two weeks. Depictions of sexual attire and sexual behavior were analyzed via a four- page coding sheet. The attached table shows the results of the analysis.
What is the appropriate statistical method to analyze the data presented in the table and why?
