A sociologist studying New York City ethnic groups wants to determine if there is a difference in income for immigrants from four different countries during their first year in the city. She obtained the data in the following table from a random sample of immigrants from these countries (incomes in thousands of dollars). Use a 0.05 level of significance to test the claim that there is no difference in the earnings of immigrants from the four different countries.

Null Hypothesis:

H0: The mean earnings of immigrants for the four different countries are the same.

Alternative Hypothesis:

H1: At least one mean earning is different.
