The banks the bailout they received and the additional cushion they were deemed to need are as shown below. Cross-Tabulation Contingency Table The cross-tabulation also known as the crosstab or the contingency table shows how many people or items are in combinations of categories.

Chapter 1 provides an introductory discussion of business statistics and its relevance to the real world. Chapters 10 through 14 focus on the use of sample data to reach conclusions regarding the phenomena that the data represent.
