In the article "Waves of Rural Brides: Female Marriage Migration in China" (Annals of the Association of American Geographers, Vol. 88(2), pp. 227-251), C. Fan and Y. Huang reported on the reasons that women in China migrate within the country to new places of residence. The percentages for reasons given by 15- to 29-year-old women for migrating within the same province are presented in the second column of the following table. For a random sample of 500 women in the same age group who migrated to a different province, the number giving each of the reasons is recorded in the third column of the table.
Decide, at the 1% significance level, whether the data provide sufficient evidence to conclude that the distribution of reasons for migration between provinces is different from that for migration within provinces.
