Social scientists have produced convincing evidence that parental divorce is negatively associated with the educational success of their children. The paper “Maternal Cohabitation and Educational Success” [Sociology of Education (2005) 78: 144– 164] describes a study that addresses the impact of cohabiting mothers on the success of their children in graduating from high school. The following table displays the educational outcome by type of family for 1,168 children.
a. Display the above data in a graph to demonstrate any differences in the proportions of high school graduates across family types.
b. Is there significant evidence that the proportions of students who graduate from high school are different across the various family types?
