There has been recent interest in a legislative initiative for laws that ensure paid time off for workers who take sick days. Suppose the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) would like to test if the proportion of workers with paid sick days is influenced by the size of the organization, measured by number of employees. The following table summarizes a random sample of 245 employees by indicating the size of their organization and if they have paid sick days.
a. Using α = 0.05, perform a chisquare test to determine if the size of the employee’s organization and his or her paid sick days category are independent.
b. Determine the pvalue for the chisquare test statistic using Excel and interpret its meaning.
c. Verify your results using pvalue.
