I have a worksheet on Race and the Death Penalty, an Investigative Task. I am very confused on how to read the 3-way tables. So far we have done 2-way contingency table, which I have no problem with. But this one I am really getting lost.
76 of 422 means what? 422 total black defendant or 422 total black victim? The defendant is the one getting accused (the guilty one?) while the victim is the innocent one?
I am not only confused with the data but as well as the terms :(
I will be asking the teacher tomorrow about this question anyways, I am posting here because I am hoping maybe someone can clear this up before I go ask my teacher.
Thanks in advance.
