Question

(1 point) It has been suggusted that the highest priority of retirees is travel. Thus, a study was conducted to investigate the differences in the length of stay of a trip for pre- and post-retirees. A sample of 717717 travelers were asked how long they stayed on a typical trip. The observed results of the study are found below.

Number of Nights | Pre-retirement | Post-retirement | Total |

4−74−7 | 245245 | 171171 | 416416 |

8−138−13 | 8282 | 6868 | 150150 |

14−2114−21 | 3535 | 6060 | 9595 |

2222 or more | 1616 | 4040 | 5656 |

Total | 378378 | 339339 | 717717 |

With this information, construct a table of estimated expected
values.

Number of Nights | Pre-retirement | Post-retirement |

8−138−13 | ||

14−2114−21 | ||

2222 or more |

Now, with that information, determine whether the length of stay is
independent of retirement using α=0.01α=0.01.

(a) χ2=χ2=

(b) Find the degrees of freedom:

(c) Find the critical value:

(d) The final conclusion is

**A.** We can reject the null hypothesis that the
length of stay is independent of retirement and accept the
alternative hypothesis that the two are dependent.

**B.** There is not sufficient evidence to reject the
null hypothesis that the length of stay is independent of
retirement.

Answer #1

The statistic software output for this problem is:

Test statistics is
= **29.300**

Degrees of freedom = 3

critical value
= **11.34**

**A.** We can reject the null hypothesis that the
length of stay is independent of retirement

and accept the alternative hypothesis that the two are dependent.
