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). There are 100 people and 4 choices (100/4 = 25). We will test whether frequencies are equal across beers.

The df for this test are k-1, where k is the number of cells. In our example k=4 and df = 3. Chi-square has a distribution found in tables.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
