## What table do you use for chi-square?

The Chi-Square distribution table is a table that shows the critical values of the Chi-Square distribution. To use the Chi-Square distribution table, you only need to know two values: The degrees of freedom for the Chi-Square test. The alpha level for the test (common choices are 0.01, 0.05, and 0.10)

**What are the hypotheses for the chi square test for 2 way tables of counts?**

In general, the null hypothesis in a two-way table is that there is no association between the row variable and the column variable and the alternative hypothesis is that there is an association.

### How do you analyze a two-way table?

Two-way frequency tables show how many data points fit in each category. The columns of the table tell us whether the student is a male or a female. The rows of the table tell us whether the student prefers dogs, cats, or doesn’t have a preference. Each cell tells us the number (or frequency) of students.

**How do you read chi-square table results?**

If your chi-square calculated value is greater than the chi-square critical value, then you reject your null hypothesis. If your chi-square calculated value is less than the chi-square critical value, then you “fail to reject” your null hypothesis.

#### How do we interpret a significant two way chi-square?

For a Chi-square test, a p-value that is less than or equal to your significance level indicates there is sufficient evidence to conclude that the observed distribution is not the same as the expected distribution. You can conclude that a relationship exists between the categorical variables.

**What are two way tables used for?**

A two way table is a way to display frequencies or relative frequencies for two categorical variables. One category is represented by rows and a second category is represented by columns.

## How do you make a chi-square table in Excel?

Calculate the chi square p value Excel: Steps

- Step 1: Calculate your expected value.
- Step 2: Type your data into columns in Excel.
- Step 3: Click a blank cell anywhere on the worksheet and then click the “Insert Function” button on the toolbar.
- Step 4: Type “Chi” in the Search for a Function box and then click “Go.”

**How can you tell if a chi-square test is significant?**

You could take your calculated chi-square value and compare it to a critical value from a chi-square table. If the chi-square value is more than the critical value, then there is a significant difference. You could also use a p-value.
