I'm learning about contingency tables and proportions. Need help interpreting this table of students interested in one of three subjects by gender.
|Science||20 (30.8%)||20 (30.8%)|
|Math||30 (46.2%)||15 (23.1%)|
|Art||15 (23.1%)||30 (46.2%)|
|Total||65 (100.0%)||65 (100.0%)|
chi2 statistic = 10, p-value= 0.007
Calling out differences between genders, are any of these correct?
- Males are twice as likely to prefer math than females.
- Most males (46%) prefer math, compared to only 23% of females.
- Students are equally likely to prefer science, regardless of gender.
- Males showed a higher rate of interest in math than females by 23.1 percentage-points.
- Males prefer science half as much as females prefer science.
- Males prefer science 50% less than females do.
- Males prefer math 2x as much as females do.
Any other examples/ideas on wording appreciated.
