**Chi – Square [Properties]**

Chi- Square is an important non-parametric test and as such now rigid assumptions are necessary is respect of the type of population we require only the degree of freedom for using this test. Non- parametric chi-square test can be used

- As a test of goodness of fit
- As a test of independence

This test was developed by statistician “Karl Pearson”.

As a test of goodness of fit: Chi – square test enable us to explain how does the theoretical distribution fit to the observed data. If the calculated value of the chi-square is less then the table value at a certain level of significance which means that there is no difference between observed and expected frequencies otherwise there is significant difference between expected and observed frequencies.

As a test of independence : Chi-Square test enables us to explain weather or not two attributes are associated. For example we may be interested in knowing weather a new medicine is effective in controlling fever or not. Chi – square test will help in deciding this issue. For this first of all we calculate chi – square value and the value is compared with the table value.

If the calculated value of chi – square is less than the table value at a given level of significance for given degree of freedom we conclude that the two attributes are independent i.e medicine is not effective in controlling fever.

We may apply the chi – square test either as a test of goodness of fit or as a test to judge the significance of an association between attributes. Chi – Square is calculated by the help of following formulae :

\(\chi ^{2}\; \left( \mbox{C}al \right)\; =\; \sum_{}^{}{\frac{\left( O-\mbox{E} \right)^{2}}{\mbox{E}}}\)

Where O = Observed frequency

E = Expected frequency

*D.f = (r-1) (c-1)*

Conditions for the application of Chi – square test :

- Observation recorded and used are collected on the random basis.
- All the items in the sample must be independent.
- No – group should contain very few items.
- The overall no if items must be greater than 30. i.e it should normally be at least 50.
- The constraints must be linear

Hi there! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my previous room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this article to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thank you for sharing!

Thank you sooo much pls do share and give me your valuable feedback on it…:D

There are actually a variety of details like that to take into consideration. That may be a nice point to carry up. I supply the ideas above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions just like the one you deliver up where crucial thing can be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if finest practices have emerged round things like that, however I’m positive that your job is clearly identified as a good game. Both girls and boys really feel the impact of only a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
