**PRESENTED BY:**Dr.Zhian Salah Ramzi Head of community and Family medicine/ sulaimani university**Chi-Square Test**• Evaluates whether observed frequencies for a qualitative variable (or variables) are adequately described by hypothesized or expected frequencies. • Qualitative (or categorical) data is a set of observations where any single observation is a word or code that represents a class or category.**Nonparametric Statistics**• Chi-Square (2 )Test • Used to analyze data in situations where one wishes to test whether the observed number of responses in a category differs from the expected number that fall in that category. • Dependent Variable is nominal. • Ho represents the expected proportion of responses falling in a given category.**Where k = # of categories, Oi = observed number of cases in**each category, Ei = expected number of cases in each category. • When Ho is true, Oi Ei and 2 will be small. If Ho is false, then Oi Ei and 2 will be large. • Simple and complex – one variable or multiple variables**Recent studies have found that most teens are knowledgeable**about AIDS, yet many continue to practice high-risk sexual behaviors. King and Anderson (1993) asked young people the following question: “If you could have sexual relations with any and all partners of your choosing, as often as you wished, for the next 2 (or 10) years, but at the end of that time period you would die of AIDS, would you make this choice?” A five-point Likert scale was used to assess the subjects’ responses. For the following**data, the responses “probably no,” “unsure,”**“probably yes”, and “definitely yes” were pooled into the category “other.” Using the .05 level of significance, test for independence. Definitely No Other Males 451 165 Females 509 118**Chi-Square Test for Independence**• State the research hypothesis. • Is willingness to participate in unprotected sex independent of gender? • State the statistical hypothesis. H0: Response to the question and gender are not related Response to the question and gender are related HA:**Chi-Square Test for Independence**• To find expected values: • Find column, row, and overall totals.
