training programs.your boss Sam wishes to know the effectiveness of the training. Sam notices that the proportion of the employed among the 445 men after training is 69.2%, which is much greater than the

(c) After the training program, is the employment rate of the men with training higher
than the employment rate of the men without training?
(d) Do you have other ways to demonstrate the effect of training on employment?
“You should be able to find answers to these questions with some of your statistical skills that
