Topic:  Chi-Square Analysis

It is frequently presumed that as individuals get older, they become more politically conservative. A political science student wants to verify this postulate. Using secondary data, the student ran a Chi-Square analysis of the age group (1835, 3655, 5680) and self-described political affiliation (liberal, moderate, or conservative). The results of his analysis are provided in the tables below, but the student is having difficultly explaining the results.

    Describe the overall findings of the Chi-Square in the output, including the cell contributions, based upon the standardized residuals.

    What conclusions can the student make concerning this postulate?
