The output of my chi-square is not what I expect to see. because it is showing me first values when MALE=. and said all data is missing; and my value labels are not appearing.

This new realm will not kill what we value in the liberal arts. It will enhance it in ways that are extraordinarily and as yet, unimaginable.
