Results:
Improved Chances of Getting Laid: 61 vote
No Change in the Chances of Getting Laid: 51 vote
Reduced Chances of Getting Laid: 1 vote
Calculation of Margin of Error:
Comparing ‘Improved Chances of Getting Laid’ vs. ‘No Change in the Chances of Getting Laid’:
Improved Chances of Getting Laid: 61 vote
No Change in the Chances of Getting Laid: 51 vote
n=113
Using our formula: Margin of Error = ±9.2%
Improved Chances: 61 vote±9.2%=61 votes±5.6 votes = a range of 55.4 to 66.6
No change: 51 votes±9.2% = 51 votes ±4.5 votes = a range of 46.5 to 55.5
Because the ranges overlap, the difference between the two numbers is not statistically significant at the 95% confidence level. If a vote of the general Community were taken, we could not determine if it would yield a majority vote for either the ‘Improved category’ or the ‘No Change’ category. It is obvious though, that the difference between these two categories and the ‘Less Chance of Getting Laid’ category is statistically significant.
In summary, then, the Community does not believe that there would be a reduced chance of getting laid if the town implemented a topsfree policy for all swimming areas.
The Community does believe that there would be either ‘improved chances of getting laid’ or ‘no chance in the chances of getting laid’.
Discussion of Results:
Both males and females in the overthirty age category voted, majority: ‘no change’. Other age categories, voted: ‘improved chances’.
There appears to be an ageeffect in this proposition for both males and females. In Graph 17fE, we can see that, below age 50, generally, the younger the age of the voter, the greater percentage voted ‘Improved chances of getting laid’. After age 50, the rates raised again but the number of voters in the 70 age group are small so that data point may or may not be significant. The age effect may or may not be significant because the number of voters in each age category are small.
Graph 17fF shows that the peak age of the percent of people who voted ‘No Change’ is about 35 years old.

When change occurs it often takes time for societies to adjust.

f. haha! 
5.

f. This question is totally unnecessary. 
6.

Unable to determine – there would likely be initial shock reactions, either negative or positive, but as withmost things, changes become integrated. 
7. 
F50s 
Wouldn’t come at all – you figure answer out.
