Class 11 Chi-Squared Test of Independence EMBS Section 11.3

Chi-squared GOF test One row (column) of Observed Counts One row (column) of Expected Counts determined based on H0 – All categories are equally likely (Roulette Wheel, Soccer birth months) – Categories have specified p’s (M&M colors) – #girls in 4 is binomial(n=4,p=.5) (Denmark Fams) – Expected Bin counts from NORMAL distribution (Lorex) Calculated chi-squared, dof, chidist, pvalue, reject or not.

Supermarket Survey A random sample of 160 employees of a national Supermarket chain were asked about a proposed wage freeze. There were two categorical variables in the resulting 160-element data set. – JOB (Stacker, Sales, Admin) – RESPONSE (favorable, unfavorable, no comment)

To examine the relationship between 2 categorical variables, start with a contingency table FavUnfavNCTotal Stacker630440 Sales12242056 Admin20103464 Total386458160 Response Job Are RESPONSE and JOB independent?

We know what to do now with our table of Observed and Expected Counts… The calculated chi-squared statistic The sum of the distances.

Calculate the table of distances.. FavUnfavNCTotal Stacker1.2912.257.60 Sales0.130.110.00 Admin1.529.515.03 Total37.44 Response Job

Get the p-value FavUnfavNCTotal Stacker1.2912.257.60 Sales0.130.110.00 Admin1.529.515.03 Total37.44 Response Job P-value =Chidist(37.44,4) =1.46E-07 Dof =(#rows-1)(#cols-1) =2*2 =4

=CHITEST will do the last two steps =CHITEST(range containing the Os, range containing the Es) Calculates the chisquared, compares it to the chidist using the appropriate dof, and reports the p-value. =CHITEST(for our data) = 1.46E-07 So…..You just have to calculate the Es. CHITEST will also work for the GOF test!!

Statistically Significant? May 13, 1999 Web posted at: 11:38 a.m. EDT (1538 GMT) (CNN) -- Young children who sleep with a light on may have a substantially higher risk of developing nearsightedness as they get older, says a new study in the journal Nature. The collaborative study of 479 children by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center and The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia found 55 percent (of the 100) children who slept with a room light on before age 2 had myopia, or nearsightedness, between ages 2 and 16. Of the (112) children who slept with a night-light before age 2, 34 percent were myopic, while just 10 percent of children who slept in darkness were nearsighted.
