    A survey by the national institute of health asked a random sample of young adults (aged 19 to 25), "Where do you live now? That is, where do you stay most often?" We earlier compared the proportions of men and women who lived with their parents. Here now is the full two-way table (omitting a few who refused to answer and one who claimed to be homeless):
    Female Male
    Parents' home 923 986
    Another persons home 144 132
    Own place 1294 1129
    Group quarters 127 119

    What are the most important differences between young men and women? Are their choices of living places significantly different?
