1 STAT -50 Introduction to Statistics The Chi-Square Test The Chi-square test is a nonparametric test that is used to compare experimental results with theoretical models. That is, we will be comparing observed frequencies with expected frequencies. In a hypothesis test, the expected frequencies are those we would expect if the null hypothesis our test is true. O The formula is where O represents the observed frequency and represents the expected frequency. The value df depends on the type test you are performing. The Chi-Square Distribution The χ distribution is nonnegative not symmetrical; it is skewed to the right distributed to form a family distributions, with a separate distribution for each different degrees freedom. The Chi-Square Test for Goodness Fit The goodness--fit test compares the distribution observed outcomes for a single categorical variable to the expected outcomes predicted by a probability model. This test involves one sample, and one variable. Assumptions and Conditions: Be sure that the data is counts, or frequencies Independence assumption Sample size assumption xpected cell frequency condition: each expected frequency is at least The Chi-square test is one-sided 0 (df, α) Automobile insurance is much more expensive for teenage than for older. To justify this cost difference, insurance companies claim that the younger are much more likely to be involved in costly.

2 Automobile insurance is much more expensive for teenage than for older. To justify this cost difference, insurance companies claim that the younger are much more likely to be involved in costly. To test this claim, a researcher obtains information about registered from the Department Motor Vehicles and selects a sample 300 accident reports from the police department. The DMV reports the age registered in each age category as reported below. The accident reports is also shown. Does this data indicate that occur with the same distribution as the ages the? H 0 : The distribution the ages involved in is the same as the distribution the ages registered. H a : The distribution the ages involved in is not the same as the distribution the ages registered. xpected cell frequency condition Under or over (this is the data) expected O - (O - ) (O - ) 7 8 xpected cell frequency condition xpected cell frequency condition Under or over n = Note: Σ observed = Σ expected expected O - (O - ) (O - ) Under or over n = Note: Σ observed = Σ expected expected O - (O - ) (O - ) 9 10 xpected cell frequency condition xpected cell frequency condition Under or over n = Note: Σ observed = Σ expected expected O - (O - ) (O - ) Under or over n = Note: Σ observed = Σ expected expected O - (O - ) (O - ) 11 1

Since the conditions are met, we will use a Chi-square model with degrees freedom, and do a Chi-square goodness--fit test. O, with df = k-1 = df = 17 O, with df = k-1 = df = 3-1 = P-value: 18 3

Create a numeric variable with a width 1 and no decimal places for the categories. Code the values this variable as follows: In the Values column, click on the box with the three dots: P-value: P <.005 Statistical conclusion: Since the p-value is small, reject the null hypothesis. Conclusion in context: The data indicates that the distribution ages involved in is not the same as the distribution ages the in the population. 1 You will then see the Value Labels dialog box. Since there are three categories ages, enter the values 1,, and 3 as coding variables: Then click on Add and you will see the results: nter the value "1" and code it as "under 0". (You do not have to use quotation marks; they will be added by SPSS.) 3 4 4

5 Continue adding all categories, one at a time, and then click on OK. You will see the results in the Values column in Variable View Create a numeric variable with no decimal places for the observed frequencies. You can then enter the observed frequency for that category. Then, for each category, enter the coded value: Repeat this until all observed frequencies have been entered: As you enter each value you will see a drop-down box. If you click on it, you can choose from the list labels. However, if you just move to the next column, you will see the category name associated with the coded value Weight the cases using the observed frequencies. 4.

The minimum expected cell frequency is These results show that χ = 13.76, and p =.001 (Note that you also have the option to choose All categories equal if that is appropriate.) The Chi-Square Test for Homogeneity In a test for homogeneity, we compare observed distributions for several groups to see if there are differences among the respective populations. The central issue is whether the category proportions are the same for all the populations. The test involves several samples but only one variable. The article Relationship Health Behaviors to Alcohol and Cigarette Use by College Students (J. College Student Development (199)) included data on drinking behavior for independently chosen random samples male and female students similar to the data shown below. Does there appear to be a gender difference with respect to drinking behavior? None 140 ( ) 186 ( ) Low (1-7) 478 ( ) 661 ( ) Moderate (8-4) 300 ( ) 173 ( ) High (5 or more) 63 ( ) 16 ( )

11 The Chi-Square Test for Independence In a test for independence, we investigate association between two categorical variables in a single population. There is one sample, but there are two variables. Assumptions and Conditions: If you want to generalize from the data to a population. xpected cell frequency condition 61 The table shown below was constructed using data in the article Television Viewing and Physical Fitness in Adults (Research Quarterly for xercise and Sport (1990)). The author hoped to determine whether time spent watching television is associated with cardiovascular fitness. Subjects were asked about their television viewing time (per day, rounded to the nearest hour) and were classified as physically fit if they scored in the excellent or very good category on a step test.
