1 Chi-Square: Introduction to Nonparametric Stats 2 χ Chi-square • Parametric vs. nonparametric tests • Hypotheses about Frequencies • Two main uses: – Goodness of fit. 1 IV. – Test of independence. 2 or more IVs. Goodness-of-fit test Blind beer tasting study. Judges taste 4 beers and declare their favorite. 100 lucky judges. Results: 100 10 30 45 15 Frequency Total Sam Adams Miller Corona Coors If no difference in taste (or all the same beer) we expect about 25 people to choose each beer (null hypothesis).
