SPSS: Chi-Square Test

## Presented By:ang ling pohongmei yeansoopeizhi

### Nonparametric Techniques

• Is used when having serious violations of distribution assumptions or not normal

• Appropriate for data measured on scales that are not interval or ratio.

• Selection of nonparametric techniques are:

• Chi-square tests

• Mann-Whitney test

• Wilcoxon signed-rank test

• Kruskal-Wallis test

• Friedman test

• Spearman’s rank-order correlation

### Chi-square Tests

• 2 Main types

• 3 assumptions to deal before conducting chi-square tests:

• Random sampling

• Independence of observations

• Size of expected frequencies

### Chi-square test for Goodness of Fit

• used to compare observed and expected frequencies in each category.

• sample size is usually small

### Chi-square test for Goodness of Fit

• Steps to conduct chi-square test for goodness of fit:

• Select the Data menu

• Click on Weight Cases to open the dialogue box

• Click on the Weight cases by radio button

• Select the relevant variable and move to Frequency Variable

• Then, select Analyze menu

• Click on Nonparametric Tests and then Chi Square

• Select the required variable to move into Test Variable List box

### Goodness of fit chi square Output file will look like this:

• You can see from the output that the chi-square value is no significant (p > .05).

### Interpreting Chi square test for Goodness of Fit

Example

Color preference of 150 people, p < 0.05

• Chi-square requires that you use numerical values, not percentage or ratios.

• Chi-square should not be calculated if the expected value in any category is less than 5.

Color preference of 150 people

### Calculate chi-square

2 = Chi-square

O = Observed frequency

E = Expected frequency

k = number of categories, groupings, or possible outcomes

2 = 26.95

### Calculate Degrees of freedom (df)

• Refers to the number of values that are free to vary after restriction has been placed on data.

• Defined as N- 1, the number in the group minus one restriction.

df = N – 1

= 5 – 1

= 4

### Critical 2 values

2 = 26.95 , df = 4 , p < 0.05

• If chi-square value is bigger than critical value, reject null hypothesis.

• If chi-square value is smaller than critical value, fail to reject null hypothesis.

Critical 2

### Chi-square Test for Relatedness or Independence

• Used to evaluate group differences when the test variable is nominal, dichotomous, ordinal, or grouped interval.

• A test of the influence or impact that a subject’s value on one variable has on the same subject’s value for a second variable.

### Chi-square Test for Relatedness or Independence

• Steps to conduct chi-square test for goodness of fit:

• Select the Analyze menu

• Click on Descriptive Statistics and then Crosstabs

• Select a row and column variable to move into the respective box

• Click on Statistics command pushbutton to open Crosstabs: Statistics subdialogue box

• Click on the Chi-square check box then Continue

• Click on the Cells subdialogue box

• In the Counts box, click on the Observed and Expected check boxes

• In the Percentages box, click on the Row, Column andTotal check boxes

• Click on Continue and then OK.

### Interpreting Chi square test for Relatedness or Independence

Example

Incidence of three types of malaria in three tropical regions.

H0 : The two categorical variables are independent.

H1. : The two categorical variables are related.

### Calculate expected frequency

e = expected frequency

c = frequency for that column

r = frequency for that row

n = total number of subjects in study

90 x 86

e =

250

= 30.96

2 = 125.516

### Calculate Degrees of freedom (df)

df = (r-1)(c-1)

= (3-1)(3-1)

= (2)(2)

= 4

r = number of categories in the row variable

c = number of categories in the column variable

### Find critical 2 values

2 = 125.516 , df = 4 , p < 0.05

Critical 2

Chi-square value is bigger than critical chi-square value, reject null hypothesis.
