Using StatCrunch construct a Contingency table for the subject’s poverty level (labeled poverty in the data set) based on their working status (labeled worknow in the data set). Your figures should look like figure 4.1 on page 61 of the Polit text. As you did for Discussion question 1, paste the output into Word and attach it to your post.
