Deforestation is a serious problem throughout much of India. The article “Factors Influencing People’s Participation in Forest Management in India” (W. Lise, Ecological Economics, 2000:379-392) discusses the social forces that influence forest management policies in three Indian states: Haryana, Bihar, and Uttar Pradesh. The forest quality in Haryana is somewhat degraded, in Bihar it is very degraded, and in Uttar Pradesh it is well-stocked. In order to study the relationship between educational levels and attitudes toward forest management, random samples of adults in each of these states were surveyed and their educational levels were ascertained. The numbers of adults at each of several educational levels were recorded. The data are presented in the following table.
Can you conclude that the educational levels differ among the three states? Explain.
