6a.
Here, the null hypothesis is that there is no difference in the rate of partisan identification between the White and Black populations.

Based on these results, I would conclude that it is possible that one could find the observed results if the actual difference in the rate of partisan identification between black and white people in the population is zero. Because it is possible that there

Partisans who voted: = 1.00

Non-Partisans who voted: = 9.81

Partisans who did not vote: = 3.90

Non-Partisans who did not vote: = 38.37

chi^2 statistic = 53.08

8b.

Calculated chi^2 statistic = 53.08
STATA’s chi^2 statistic = 53.0752

8c.
According to table C, with one degree of freedom [(2-1)(2-1) = 1] and the desire for 95% accuracy, the chi^2 statistic must be no greater than 3.84. Because 53.08 is greater than 3.84, we can reject the null hypothesis and confidently state that people who have a partisan identification were more likely to vote than those who did not.

9. I would investigate whether Race is independent of Party Identification Therefore, my null hypothesis would be that that there is no relationship between race and party identification.
