Question: Six months ago a bureau employed seven women out of

Six months ago, a bureau employed seven women out of a total workforce of 57. A federal commission cited the bureau for discrimination in hiring and informed the bureau that great changes would have to be made in the employment of women within six months. Since that time, the bureau has hired 11 new employees, all of them women. In its final report to the federal commission, the bureau argued that “we have made statistically significant strides (at the .01 level) in the hiring of women.” Evaluate this claim for the commission. Do you agree or disagree with the statement of the bureau? Support your answer.
