Summary: We consider yet another way in which we use samples to explore populations. We continue to emphasize categorical variables, this time considering pairs of categorical variables. We look at a more general version of the chisquare test from the previous topic.
Notes:
Overview:
So, how do we do a chisqure computation in R? It ends up being fairly straightforward.
We start by making a table or data frame from our data.
> SC = fys[,c(1,3)] > table(SC) CHOICE SEX 1 2 3 4 1 4 11 34 108 2 15 7 35 127 > SCframe = data.frame(row.names=c("Below Third","Third","Second","First"), + Male=SCtable[1,], + Female=SCtable[2,]) > SCframe Male Female Below Third 4 15 Third 11 7 Second 34 35 First 108 127
We can simple apply the chisq.test
procedure to this table
to get the important values.
> chisq.test(SCframe) Pearson's Chisquared test data: SCframe Xsquared = 6.7122, df = 3, pvalue = 0.08166
However, we will often want to look more carefuly at the differences between observed and expected values. The computation of the expected values is a strange formula that I don't expect you to understand. (I do expect that you could do an individual computation by hand, but this does all of them at once.)
> SCexpected = rowSums(SCframe) %o% colSums(SCframe)/sum(SCframe) > SCexpected Male Female Below Third 8.74780 10.25220 Third 8.28739 9.71261 Second 31.76833 37.23167 First 108.19648 126.80352
We can now compare directly.
> SCframe  SCexpected Male Female Below Third 4.7478006 4.7478006 Third 2.7126100 2.7126100 Second 2.2316716 2.2316716 First 0.1964809 0.1964809
As importantly, we can compute the deviations.
> (SCframeSCexpected)^2/SCexpected Male Female Below Third 2.5768317632 2.1987097110 Third 0.8878854292 0.7575978934 Second 0.1567711671 0.1337667023 First 0.0003568024 0.0003044455
