GLEN APO BST322 WEEK 3 DISCUSSION 1 Now that we are more familiar with StatCrunch and making cross-tabulation tables, discuss how the textbook author (Dr. Polit) created Figure 8.2 (the cross tabulation table on p. 174). Can you get the data into StatCrunch and perform the Chi-Square test? All the answers are there for you in the table- can you get StatCrunch to generate them? The crosstabs seen in figure 8.2 refer to Heparin Lock Placement Times at 72 and 96 hours and whether or not there were complications involved. The first step would be to plug the data into statcrunch and have the program produce a contingency table.
