*Expected values are computed using the marginal values. These values simply mirror the sample. By comparing the Observed values to the Expected values, a relationship can be concluded. For example, there are a greater number of female faculty members under the age of 40 than we would expect leading us to conclude that hiring practices have increased the gender diversity of faculty in recent years.
