It is frequently presumed that as individuals get older, they become more politically conservative. A political science student wants to verify this postulate. Using secondary data, the student ran a Chi-Square analysis of the age group (18–35, 36–55, 56–80) and self-described political affiliation (liberal, moderate, or conservative). The results of his analysis are provided in the tables below, but the student is having difficultly explaining the results.

  • Describe the overall findings of the Chi-Square in the output, including the cell contributions, based upon the standardized residuals.
  • What conclusions can the student make concerning this postulate?
