A Youth Correction Center completed a study to explore the proportion of delinquent
behaviour, according to birth order, among two groups of teenagers (males and
females, age 12-17). The data are given in the table below. Determine whether there is
a difference between male and female offenders, according to their birth order. Use a
0.02 level of significance and show all steps of the hypothesis process.


Males Females
Oldest 265 34
In-between 247 25
Youngest 231 29
Only child 71 19
Total 814 107

Should I use the Homogeneity or independence test to solve this?
