1. Consider carefully the table below that describes the relationship between two survey questions. Researchers gave the survey to chief executives of local governments across the United States. Use a Chi-Squared test with an alpha of 0.05 to explore if there is a relationship between the answers given to these two questions.
1. Is there a statistically significant relationship between whether a state has a climate action plan and whether the local government has any adaptation activities?
2. Based on the evidence available here, can you as a researcher make the claim below? Why or why not? “State climate plans cause local governments to engage in adaptation activities
 Local Government Activities and State Climate Plans Does your state have a climate plan? Are there local climate adaptation activities? No Yes No 74% 65% Yes 26% 35% Chi-square = 5.69, p = 0.017

a. Since p-value=0.017<0.05 so there is a statistically significant relationship between whether a state has a climate action plan and whether the local government has any adaptation activities.

b. Since there is a statistically significant relationship between whether a state has a climate action plan and whether the local government has any adaptation activities so we can make the claim that State climate plans cause local governments to engage in adaptation activities.
