Chapter 13 – 2Chi-Square as a Statistical TestChi-square test:an inferential statisticstechnique designed to test for significant relationshipsbetween two variables organized in a bivariate table.Chi-square requires no assumptionsabout the shape of the population distribution from which a sample is drawn.It can be applied to nominallyor ordinallymeasured variables.
Chapter 13 – 3Statistical IndependenceIndependence (statistical):the absenceofassociationbetween two cross-tabulated variables. The percentage distributions of the dependent variable within each category of the independent variable are identical.
Chapter 13 – 4Hypothesis Testing with Chi-SquareChi-square follows five steps:1.Making assumptions (random sampling)2.Stating the research and null hypotheses and selecting alpha3.
