A review of 100 opera patrons was conducted. Respondents were asked how often they attended the symphony in a neighbouring city. The frequency of attendance was partitioned into the categories of never, occasionally (1 or 2 times), and often (3 or more times). Respondents were also asked whether they regarded the location of the symphony as convenient or inconvenient. The cross-tabulation below determines the distribution of respondents. Using these data, we are interested in examining the relationship among attendance at the symphony and whether the location of the symphony is regarded as convenient or inconvenient.
