Big Picture: Number Crunching

**Chi-squared test worked example
**

Data

A student investigated whether taking vitamin C tablets every day for a school term affected peoples’ chances of getting a cold during the period. The results are shown below. Vitamin C tablet taken 15 100 Vitamin C tablet not taken 22 93

Got a cold during the term Did not get a cold during the term

Choose statistical test. The chi-square test is used when: data are nominal (in this case people either got a cold, or did not get a cold) the observed number in each category can be compared to an expected number none of the expected frequencies is less than five. State the null hypothesis. NH0: Vitamin C does not affect the chance of catching a cold. State the level of significance. P = 5 per cent (0.05). Calculate the expected results. Assuming the null hypothesis to be true, we would expect the proportion of people taking vitamin C tablets who caught a cold to be the same as the proportion of people not taking vitamin C tablets who caught a cold. Calculate the totals of the rows and columns in the results table. Vitamin C tablet taken Got a cold 15 Did not get a cold 100 Column total 115 Calculate the proportion of students who caught a cold. Proportion of students who got a cold = 37/230 = 0.16 Calculate the number of students expected to catch a cold and not catch a cold in each sample. We would expect 16 per cent of students taking vitamin C to catch a cold: 18.4 students. We would expect 84 per cent of students taking vitamin C to not catch a cold: 96.6 students. We would expect 16 per cent of students not taking vitamin C to catch a cold: 18.4 students. We would expect 84 per cent of students not taking vitamin C to not catch a cold: 96.6 students.

Vitamin C tablet not taken 22 93 115

Row total 37 193 230

Calculate the chi-squared value. got cold Took vitamin C.64 9.61 16.174 1. Degrees of freedom 1 2 Significance level 5% 2% 3.9 2.41 5.61 Took vitamin C.41 9.82 1% 6.84 5.4 96. Conclusion We cannot reject the null hypothesis. .9 3. did not get cold Total 2 –3.61 *Yates’ correction applies for a 2 x 2 table.6 18.21 The critical value of chi-squared at 5% significance and 1 degree of freedom is 3. Students taking vitamin C tablets do not have a significantly different chance of catching a cold compared to students not taking vitamin C tablets.4 96. What are the degrees of freedom? DF = (number of rows – 1) x (number of columns – 1) DF = (2–1) x (2–1) DF = 1 Compare the calculated value with the critical value.522 0.6 O–E Yates’ correction* (O–E)–0. did not get cold Did not take vitamin C.1 –4.61.4 3.84.99 7.4 3.1 Square of corrected difference 15. The calculated value is smaller than the critical value at the 5% level of probability. Category Observed (O) 15 100 22 93 Expected (E) 18.21 8.81 Square of corrected difference/E 0.087 0.6 = 1. got cold Did not take vitamin C.6 –3.5 –3. so there is not a significant difference between the observed and expected results at the 5 per cent level of probability. Our calculated value is 1.827 0.
