Statistical Assumption of the independent sample t test:
1. The data should be collected by random sampling.
2. The sample should be independent from each other.
3. The data should be continuous or we can say that the data should be either interval level or ratio level for t test.

Using the data set you have selected, select independent and dependent variables.
Here we have
Independent Variable: MARITAL STATUS
Dependent Variable: ABORTION IF WOMAN WANTS FOR ANY REASON

Develop the null and the alternative hypothesis.
Null Hypothesis (Ho): There is no significant difference of mean marital status among these two groups that are abortion or no abortion.
Alternative Hypothesis (Ha): There is a significant difference of mean marital status among these two groups that are abortion or no abortion.
Mathematically;
Null Hypothesis (Ho): µ1 = µ2
Alternative ...
