Question

Do people who go to bars and pubs a lot tend to have more friends? A recent GSS asked, “How often do you go to a bar or tavern?” The table shows results of ANOVA for comparing the mean number of good friends at three levels of this variable. The very often group reported going to a bar at least several times a week. The occasional group reported going occasionally, but not as often as several times a week.
Summary of ANOVA for mean number of good friends and going to bars
a. State the
(i) Hypotheses,
(ii) Test statistic value, and
(iii) P-value for the significance test displayed in this table. Interpret the P-value.
b. Based on the assumptions needed to use the method in part a, is there any aspect of the data summarized here that suggests that the ANOVA test and follow-up confidence intervals may not be appropriate? Explain.
