Chi Square (χ2)
The chi-square test of is used
when we wish to find out whether two or more
populations (unpaired groups) have the same
proportions for the different categories of
particular variable in the nominal scale.

e.g.
“comparison of the proportion of students who passed the Nursing
Licensure Exam (NLE) among those who studied in SLCN and those
who studied in University of Brighter East (UBE).”
χ2 test of Homogeneity
SLCN UBE
(110 students) (95 students)

pass fail pass fail
95.45% 89.47%
e.g.
“comparison of the proportion of students who passed the Nursing
Licensure Exam (NLE) among those who studied in SLCN and those
who studied in University of Brighter East (UBE).”
Hypothesis Testing: Steps
1. State the null and alternative Hypothesis

2. State the level of significance:


α = 0.05
α = 0.01

3. Analyze: p-value (SPSS)

4. Make a statistical Decision

5. Interpret
Hypothesis Testing: Chi Square
test of Homogeneity

Populations
What is the value of P1?
SLCN = 95.45%

What is the value of P2?


UBE = 89.97%

What is the variable of interest? NLE passers


Hypothesis Testing: Chi Square
test of Homogeneity
Step 1
H0: P1 = P2
“the proportion of SLCN students who passed the NLE is the
statistically the same with UBE.”

Ha: P1 ≠ P2
“the proportion of SLCN students who passed the NLE is
statistically different with UBE.”

Hypothesis Testing: Chi Square
test of Homogeneity
Step 5

Interpretation:
“There is no sufficient evidence to conclude
that the proportion of students who passed
the NLE from SLCN is significantly different
from UBE.”
McNemer’s Test
Assesses if a statistically significant change in
proportions have occurred on a dichotomous
nominal trait at two time points on the same
population (paired groups).
(statisticssolution.com)
Also used for “before and after” experiments.

e.g.
“comparison of the proportion of diabetics elderly women before
and after eating ampalaya for 1 month in Brgy. Bantayog.”
McNemer’s Test
Two time points
Time 1 Time 2
1 month

Same population = 156 elderly women

P1 = 51 same population
P2 = 20
(32.69%) (12.82%)

e.g.
“comparison of the proportion of diabetic elderly women before
and after eating Ampalaya for 1 month in Brgy. Bantayog.”
Hypothesis Testing: Steps
1. State the null and alternative Hypothesis

2. State the level of significance:


α = 0.05
α = 0.01

3. Analyze: p-value (SPSS)

Populations
What is the value of P1?
Time 1 = 32.69%

What is the value of P2?


Time 2 = 12.82%

What is the variable of interest?

Hypothesis Testing: McNemer’s
Test
Step 1
H0: P1 = P2
“the proportion of Diabetics among elderly women in Brgy. Bantayog
is significantly the same with its previous proportion before eating
ampalaya.”

Ha : P1 ≠ P2
“the proportion of Diabetics among elderly women in Brgy. Bantayog
is significantly different with its previous proportion before eating
ampalaya.”

Level of

Significance
p-value 0.000
The p-value 0.000 is less than α = 0.05
Hypothesis Testing: McNemer’s
Test
Step 5

Interpretation:
“The proportion of diabetics among elderly
women in Brgy. Bantayog is statistically
different with its previous proportion
before eating ampalaya. It is now
significantly lower compared to 1 month
ago.”
t-test
Hypothesis testing for the difference
between two sample means.

The variables of interest


(outcome/dependent variable) is
quantitative and was measured using
interval or ratio scale.
Paired t-test
Use in difference testing of means between
two related samples.

Before and After experiment.

Left versus Right experiment.


Paired t-test
Two related samples
“Left vs. Right” experiment:

Sample 1 Sample 2
Similar characteristics
e.g.
same weight, gender,
age (+ 2), nationality
e.g.
“Comparison of average number of absences in a month
of students from Kramer National High School, and
Santos National High School.”

Criteria: student census, % gender, ave. age


Paired t-test
Two related samples
“Before and After” experiment:
Interv
Measurement 1 ention Measurement 2

e.g.
“Comparison of average Volatile Organic Compound
(VOC) level in parts per billion (ppb) in 5 days before
and after using Aloe Vera plant as an air purifying
agent during office hours.”

Unpaired t-test
To compare the means from two
samples that are unrelated or
independent from each other.

e.g.
“comparison of the systolic blood pressure
(mmHg) of employees in department A and
department B of Compact, Inc.”
Unpaired t-test
