"The odds ratio indicated that arranged married societies were 5.5 times more likely to classify as having premarital relationships "occasional" and 9.9 times more likely to classify as having premarital relationships "uncommon" than "universal," but as indicated by the Wald statistic, the odds ratio was not significant (p.195)."
