Chapter 2, Problem 2.1P

To determine

**a)**

**To find:**

The percentages of the respondents in each complex are married.

Expert Solution

**Solution:**

Complex A:

Complex B:

**Formula:**

Percentage: % =

Where,

*f* = frequency, or the number of cases in a specific category.

*N* = the number of cases in all categories.

For complex A,

The frequency of married respondents is f = 5.

Total number of frequencies is N = 20.

Therefore the percentage of the respondents who are married at,

Complex A:

For complex B,

The frequency of married respondents is f = 10.

Total number of frequencies is N = 20.

Therefore the percentage of the respondents who are married at,

Complex B:

To determine

**b)**

**To find:**

The ratio of single to married respondents at each complex.

Expert Solution

**Solution:**

Complex A: 4:5 = 0.80

Complex: B: 6:10 = 0.60

Ratios are computed by dividing the frequency in one category by the frequency in another one. The formula for a ratio is:

Ratio =

Where,

For Complex A,

Therefore, the ratio of single to married respondents at complex A is

For Complex B,

Therefore, the ratio of single to married respondents at complex B is

To determine

**c)**

**To find:**

The proportion of the residents of each complex who are widowed.

Expert Solution

**Solution:**

**Complex A: **

**Complex B:**

**Formula:**

Proportion =

Where,

*f* = frequency, or the number of cases in a specific category.

*N* = the number of cases in all categories.

For Complex A,

*f* = the number of widows in Complex A, *f* = 0.

*N* = the number of cases in all categories, N = 20.

Therefore, the proportion of the residents of each complex who are widowed is

For Complex B,

*f* = the number of widows in Complex B, *f* = 1.

*N* = the number of cases in all categories, N = 20.

Therefore, the proportion of the residents of each complex who are widowed is

To determine

**d)**

**To find:**

The percentage of the single respondents living in Complex B.

Expert Solution

**Solution:**

**Formula:**

Percentage: % =

Where,

*f* = frequency, or the number of cases in a specific category.

*N* = the number of cases in all categories.

For complex B,

The frequency of single respondents from Complex B is f = 6.

Total number of single respondents is N = 6 + 4 = 10.

Therefore the percentage of the single respondents living in Complex B is,

To determine

**e)**

**To find:**

The ratio of the “unmarried/living together” to the “married” at each complex.

Expert Solution

**Solution:**

Complex A: 8:5 = 1.60.

Complex: B: 2:10 = 0.20.

**Ratios** are computed by dividing the frequency in one category by the frequency in another one. The formula for a ratio is:

Ratio =

Where,

For Complex A,

Therefore, the ratio of unmarried/living together to married respondents at complex A is:

For Complex B,

Therefore, the ratio of single to married respondents at complex B is
