Prompt:

Below is a chi-square and Cramer’s V statistic from Maricopa County’s Sheriff Offices’ Annual Report (2014-2015). The tables tests the relationship between whether a driver had an item seized by that driver’s race. The chi-square is significant, so a relationship exists. What does this tell us about the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office? How does the Cramer’s V weigh in here? In other words, according to this data, does MCSO discriminate based on race? If so, which races and how much does race account for seizures?
