Compare the Means of Both Democrats and Republicans
The following table displays a tabular analysis of whether a U.S. state is located in the south and whether that state is above or below the median on number of abortion restrictions. We might hypothesize that the political culture in the south lends itself to policies that place greater restrictions on abortions.
Using the data presented here, test this against the null hypothesis that there is no relationship between geography and abortion restrictions. Calculate the appropriate statistic for assessing this hypothesis and provide the p-value for this test statistic (Show your work). What is the inference that we can draw from this analysis?
