Quantitative Methods for Lawyers - Class #12 - Chi Square Distribution and Chi Square Test - Professor Daniel Martin Katz

  1. 1. Quantitative Methods for Lawyers Chi Square ( ) Distribution Class #12 χ 2 ( ad - bc)2 (a + b + c +d) ( a + b) (c +d) (b +d) ( a + c) Chi Square ( ) Testχ 2 @ computational computationallegalstudies.com professor daniel martin katz danielmartinkatz.com lexpredict.com slideshare.net/DanielKatz
  2. 2. Generally - Two types of random variables numerical and categorical “What was your college major ?” or “Do you own a bike?” are categorical because they yield data such as “Economics” or “no.” Categorical versus Numerical Data categorical variables yield data in categories numerical variables yield data in numerical form Categorical variables “How tall are you?” or “What is your G.P.A.?” are numerical. Numerical data can be either discrete or continuous. Numerical variables
  3. 3. A chi square (χ 2 ) statistic is used to investigate whether distributions of categorical variables differ from one another Chi Square ( ) Statisticχ 2 The Chi Square statistic compares the tallies or counts of categorical responses between two (or more) independent groups. (note: Chi square tests can only be used on actual numbers and not on percentages, proportions, means, etc.)
  4. 4. There are several types of chi square tests depending on the way the data was collected and the hypothesis being tested. Imagine the simplest case of a 2 x 2 contingency table If we set the 2 x 2 table to the general notation shown below in Table 1, using the letters a, b, c, and d to denote the contents of the cells: Variable 2 Data Type 1 Data Type 2 Totals Category 1 a b a + b Category 2 c d c + d Total a + c b + d a+b+c+d =N Chi Square ( ) Statisticχ 2
  5. 5. Variable 2 Data Type 1 Data Type 2 Totals Category 1 a b a + b Category 2 c d c + d Total a + c b + d a+b+c+d =N χ 2 = ( ad - bc)2 (a + b + c +d) ( a + b) (c +d) (b +d) ( a + c) Note: notice that the four components of the denominator are the four totals from the table columns and rows Chi Square ( ) Statisticχ 2

  13. 13. What Does a χ 2 value of 6.6 Tell Us? Need to Look at the P Value on Chi Square Table Here the Degrees of Freedom are = 1 (more on D.F. later) Thus, there is roughly a 1% probability that the disparity was generated by chance Chi Square ( ) Statisticχ 2
  14. 14. Suppose you conducted a drug trial on a group and you hypothesize that the group receiving the drug would survive at a rate higher than those that did not receive the drug. Ho: Group survival is independent of drug treatment Ha: Group survival is associated with drug treatment Chi Square ( ) Statisticχ 2
  15. 15. You conduct the study and collect the following data: χ 2 = ( ad - bc)2 (a + b + c +d) ( a + b) (c +d) (b +d) ( a + c) Chi Square ( ) Statisticχ 2
  16. 16. Applying the formula above we get: Chi square = 105 [(36)(25) - (14)(30) ]2 / (50)(55)(39)(66) = 3.418 Chi Square ( ) Statisticχ 2
  17. 17. How Do We Determine How Many Degrees of Freedom? Before we can proceed we need to know how many degrees of freedom we have. When a comparison is made between one sample and another, a simple rule is that the degrees of freedom equal (number of columns minus one) x (number of rows minus one) not counting the totals for rows or columns. For our data this gives (2-1) x (2-1) = 1. Chi Square ( ) Statisticχ 2
  18. 18. We now have our chi square statistic (x2 = 3.418), our predetermined alpha level of significance (0.05), and our degrees of freedom (df =1). Entering the Chi square distribution table with 1 degree of freedom and reading along the row we find our value of x2 (3.418) lies between 2.706 and 3.841. Chi Square ( ) Statisticχ 2

  21. 21. χ 2 = 41.2 How Many Degrees of Freedom? Rule of Thumb is Subtract 1 from # of Rows & Subtract 1 from # of Columns. Then, Multiply the Result (4 -1 ) x ( 4 - 1) = 9
  22. 22. χ 2 = 41.2 How Many Degrees of Freedom? Rule of Thumb is Subtract 1 from # of Rows & Subtract 1 from # of Columns. Then, Multiply the Result (4 -1 ) x ( 4 - 1) = 9
