Suppose that each student in a sample had been categorized with respect to political views, marijuana usage, and religious preference, with the categories of this latter factor being Protestant, Catholic, and other. The data could be displayed in three different two-way tables, one corresponding to each category of the third factor. With pijk = P(political category i, marijuana category j, and religious category k), the null hypothesis of independence of all three factors states that

Let nijk denote the observed frequency in cell (i, j, k). Show how to estimate the expected cell counts assuming that H0 is true (

1. Who seems to have more variability in their shoe sizes, men or women?

a) Men

b) Women

c) Neither group show variability

d) Flag this Question

2. In general, why use the estimate of$n-1$ rather than n in the computation of the standard deviation and variance?

a) The estimate n-1 is better because it is used for calculating the population variance and standard deviation

b) The estimate n-1 is never used to calculate the sample variance and standard deviation

c)$n-1$ provides an unbiased estimate of the population and allows more variability when using a sample and gives a better mathematical estimate of the population

d) The estimate n-1 is better because it is use for calculation of both the population and sample variance as well as standard deviation.

A survey was designed to study how business operations vary according to their size. Companies were classified as small, medium, or large. Questionnaires were sent to 200 randomly selected businesses of each size. Because not all questionnaires were returned, researchers decided to investigate the relationship between the response rate and the size of the business. The data are given in the two-way table.

Which variable should be used as the explanatory variable? Explain.

Regardless of whether you are looking for two-way tables exam questions or got stuck with various tasks based on some equations, you will find all the correct answers here. Since two-way tables questions are encountered by students coming from all disciplines from Physics to Sociology, the use of two-way tables should always focus on displaying the frequencies (both relative and not) for two categorical variables. It is the reason why there are two ways to solve the problem. Our examples are represented by both rows where each column is related to a particular variable.
