1 Singpore Med J 2003 Vol 44(10) : B s i c S t t i s t i c s F o r D o c t o r s Biosttistics 103: Qulittive Dt Tests of Independence Y H Chn Prmetric & nonprmetric tests (1) re used when the outcome response is quntittive nd our interest is to determine whether there re ny sttisticl differences between/mongst groups (which re ctegoricl). In this rticle, we re going to discuss how to nlyse reltionships between ctegoricl vribles. Tble I shows the first five cses of 200 subjects with their gender nd intensity of snoring (No, At Times, Frequent nd Alwys) nd snoring sttus (Yes or No) recorded. Templte I. Crosstbs. Tble I. Dt structure in SPSS. Subject Gender Snoring Intensity Snoring Sttus 1 Mle No No 2 Mle Alwys Yes 3 Femle Frequent Yes 4 Mle At times Yes It does not mtter whether we put Snoring intensity or Gender into the Row(s) or Columns but for esier interprettion of the results (lter) it is recommended to put the the ctegoricl vrible of outcome interest (in this cse, the Snoring intensity) in the Columns option. Click on the Cells button nd tick the Row Percentges (the Observed Counts is ticked by defult), then Continue. Templte II. Crosstbs: Cell Disply. 5 Femle No No Here, we hve two interests. One is to determine whether there s n ssocition between gender nd snoring intensity nd the other is the ssocition between gender nd snoring sttus. The interprettion of the results for both nlyses is not similr. Let s discuss the 1 st interest. The null hypothesis is: There is No Assocition between gender nd snoring intensity. To test this hypothesis of no ssocition (or independence), the ChiSqure test is performed. With the given dt structure in Tble I, to perform the ChiSqure test in SPSS, use Anlyse, Descriptive Sttistics, Crosstbs nd the following templte is obtined: The crosstbultion tble is shown in Tble II. This tble is 2 X 4 (red s 2 by 4); 2 levels for Gender nd 4 levels for Snoring intensity.

Templte III. Crosstbs: Sttistics. lies in the mles being more likely to hve Alwys snoring intensity compred to the femles (24% vs 8.7%). Sometimes it s not so strightforwrd to interpret n ssocition! For the 2 nd interest, the null hypothesis is: There is No Assocition between gender nd snoring sttus. The (2 x 2) crosstbultion tble nd the ChiSqure test results re shown in tbles IV nd V respectively. Tble IV. (2 x 2) crosstbultion tble of Gender nd Snoring sttus.

The minimum expected count is Here the Person ChiSqure vlue is 9.17 with df (degree of freedom) = 3 nd the pvlue is (<0.05) the rest of the sttistics in the tble is of no interest to us! Hence we reject the null hypothesis of no ssocition. The ChiSqure test only tells us whether there is ny ssocition between two ctegoricl vribles but does not indicte wht the ssocition is. From Tble II, by inspection, it is obvious tht the difference Totl Count % within Gender 49.5% 50.5% 100.0% Tble V. Result for ChiSqure test for the (2 X 2) Gender nd Snoring sttus.

A different conclusion from the bove results on the ssocition between Gender nd Snoring intensity! You my hve observed tht the ChiSqure Tests Tbles of III nd V re different. The reson is tht for (2 x 2) ssocition, SPSS utomticlly gives us the result for the Fisher s Exct Test wheres for non (2 x 2), we hve to sk for it (but we hve to purchse this Exct test module). Why do we need this Fisher s Exct test? The vlidity of the Person s ChiSqure test is violted when there re smll frequencies in the cells. The forml definitions of these ssumptions (not reproduced here) for the vlidity cn be found in ny sttisticl textbook. In SPSS, this vlidity is esily checked by observing the lst line of the ChiSqure Tests Tble (for exmple in Tble V), we wnt 0 cells (.0%) hve expected count less thn five, otherwise we will hve to use the Fisher s Exct test. Tble VI nd VII shows sitution where we should be cutious: Tble VI. 2 x 2 crosstbultion of Gender nd Snoring sttus (n = 56) Gender* Snoring sttus Crosstbultion Snoring sttus NO YES Totl Gender Femle Count % within Gender 95.7% 4.3% 100.0% Mle Count % within Gender 75.8% 24.2% Totl Count % within Gender 83.9% 16.1% 100.0% Tble VII.

The minimum expected count is From the lst line of tble VII, we observe tht the vlidity of the Person s ChiSqure test is violted (1 cell hs expected count less thn five), thus in this cse the pvlue of for the Fisher s Exct test should be reported (nd not the significnt p = of the Person ChiSqure), signifying no ssocition. For non 2 x 2 tble, we cn sk for Fisher s Exct test by clicking the Exct button (t the left corner of Templte I) nd the following templte is obtined: Templte IV. Exxt Tests. Tick the Exct option. The computtion for this Fisher s Exct test is quite extensive nd sometimes for 4 x 6 tble, sy, most likely the Person s Chi Squre will not be vlid s there s high probbility for some of the cells to hve smll frequencies. After couple of minutes computtion, the only nswer we get from the Fisher s Exct test is Computer memory not enough! Wht should we do? If the pvlue of the violted Person s ChiSqure test is lrge or very smll, we hve no worries s the pvlue of the Fisher s Exct would not be so different. The only time we hve to worry is when this violted Person s pvlue is hovering round 0.04 to 0.06 (nd the Fisher s Exct test did not help), then it is recommended to seek for the help of biosttisticin! There re instnces where we do not hve the rw dt (s given in Tble I) vilble but only the crosstbultion Tble II (perhps ppering in publiction) nd we re interested to perform the ChiSqure test. In this cse, we hve to set up the dtset s shown in Tble VIII (refer to Tble II for the corresponding frequencies). Tble VIII. SPSS dt structure for crosstbultion tble.

4 501 : 2003 Vol 44(10) Singpore Med J Before we crry out the sequence of steps s discussed bove for performing the Chisqure test, we hve to inform SPSS tht this time ech row is not subject but the totl number of cses re being weighted by the Count vrible. In SPSS, go to Dt, Weight Cses nd the following templte ppers: Templte V. Weight Cses. Tble X. Crosstbultion tble for Exposure nd exmple. Exposure* Crosstbultion Yes=1 No=2 Totl Exposure yes=1 Count % within Gender 30.0% 70.0% 100.0% no=2 Count % within Gender 10.0% 90.0% 100.0% Totl Count % within Exposure 20.0% 80.0% 100.0% p<0.001 (Person ChiSqure) Tble XI.

Mesuring the Strength of n Assocition (only for 2 x 2 tbles). The mgnitude of the pvlue does not indicte the strength of ssocition between two ctegoricl vribles s we know tht this vlue is dependent on the smple size. To express the strength of significnt ssocition (only for 2 x 2 tbles), the odds rtio or the reltive risk between the outcomes of the two groups re presented. Tble IX shows the crosstbultion for Exposure nd. Tble IX. 2 x 2 crosstbultion for Exposure nd. YES No Exposed Yes b No c d By definition, the Odds Rtio is given by OR = (d)/(bc): the rtio of the odds hving disese given exposed nd of hving disese given not exposed nd the Reltive Risk (RR) = (c+d)/ c(+b): the rtio of the probbilities of hving disese given exposed nd hving disese given not exposed. How to obtin the odds rtio nd reltive risk from SPSS? From templte III, besides ticking on the Chisqure option, tick the Risk option too. Tbles X XI show the 2 x 2 crosstbultion nd the Risk estimtes for exposure/disese exmple: Odds Rtio for Exposure (yes/no) = yes = no There s significnt ssocition between Exposure nd (p<0.001). Looking t Tble XI, the Odds Rtio for n Yes/No Exposure of hving (the 1 st column of Tble X) is (95% CI to 8.422) which is lso the OR for the No/Yes Exposure for hving No. The Reltive Risk is obtined from the cohort = yes or no. = yes, the Reltive Risk between Exposure nd nonexposure is 3.0 nd is for the cohort = no. This interprettion of the results is rther strightforwrd becuse of the wy we set up the crosstbultion tble. Observe tht the codings for yes = 1 nd no = 2, nd SPSS will disply the yes first nd then the no. Wht if we hve coded yes = 1 nd no = 0 for? Tble XII Exposure* Crosstbultion No=0 Yes=1 Totl Exposure yes=1 Count % within Gender 70.0% 30.0% 100.0% no=2 Count % within Gender 90.0% 10.0% 100.0% Totl Count % within Exposure 80.0% 20.0% 100.0%

Odds Rtio for Exposure (yes/no) = no = = yes = There will be no chnge in the pvlue of the ssocition but from Tble XIII, the OR presented now is for Yes/No Exposure of hving No (the 1 st column of Tble XII) is (which is just the reciprocl of 3.857!). For non 2 x 2 tble, if significnt ssocition exists, we my wnt to find out where the differences re. Let s consider the exmple of Snoring sttus nd Rce. Tble XIV. Crosstbultion of Rce nd Snoring sttus. RACE* Snoring sttus Crosstbultion Snoring sttus Yes No Totl Rce Chinese Count % within RACE 42.3% 57.7% 100.0% Indin Count % within RACE 75.0% 25.0% 100.0% Mly Count % within RACE 61.4% 38.6% 100.0% Others Count % within RACE 28.6% 71.4% 100.0% Totl Count p = (Fisher s Exct test). % within RACE 50.5% 49.5% 100.0% There s n ssocition between Rce nd Snoring sttus (p=0.013) nd from Tble XIV, it s not obvious where this ssocition is. Since Rce is nominl ctegoricl vrible, we cn crete four dummy vribles: Chinese vs nonchinese, Mly vs non Mlys, etc. Tht is the new vrible Chinese hs only two levels: Chinese or nonchinese nd then we perform the ChiSqure test using these four dummy vribles with Snoring sttus. Tble XV shows the crosstbultion for the Chinese nd Snoring Sttus nd the pvlue for this ssocition is which is sttisticlly significnt even fter we djusted for the type 1 error for multiple comprison (1) (p<0.05/4 = 0.125).

MCNEMAR TEST The McNemr test is used when we hve mtched csecontrol study. For exmple, we re interested to determine whether there s ny ssocition between dibetes nd AMI. One study design is to mtchbyge, sy, 50yerold dibetic with nother 50yerold non dibetic nd follow them up for length of time. Four possible outcomes could be obtined.
