Table of Contents

First, when you perform Chi-square test for the three groups together, you will get general idea about the differences between groups. Then you can perform the sub-effect test between only the group that had significantly higher prevalence with the other groups. What is the best test to use for 3×2 categorical data.

**Can you do a Chi-square test with multiple variables?**

The Chi-Square Test of Independence can only compare categorical variables. It cannot make comparisons between continuous variables or between categorical and continuous variables.

### What is a 3 way contingency table?

A three-way contingency table is a cross-classification of observations by the levels of three categorical variables. More generally, k-way contingency tables classify observations by levels of k categorical variables. Levels may be ordinal or nominal.

**How do you compare categorical data between three groups?**

If you are using categorical data you can use the Kruskal-Wallis test (the non-parametric equivalent of the one-way ANOVA) to determine group differences. If the test shows there are differences between the 3 groups. You can use the Mann-Whitney test to do pairwise comparisons as a post hoc or follow up analysis.

## How do you compare categorical variables between three groups?

**What statistical test do you use for 3 variables?**

One of the more common statistical tests for three or more data sets is the Analysis of Variance, or ANOVA. To use this test, the data must meet certain criteria.

**Can chi-square independence tests be trusted in SPSS?**

Conclusions from a chi-square independence test can be trusted if two assumptions are met: independent observations. This usually -not always- holds if each case in SPSS holds a unique person or other statistical unit.

### What is the test statistic for chi square test of Independence?

**What is an example of Pearson’s chi square test?**

For example, to see if the distribution of males and females differs between control and treated groups of an experiment requires a Pearson’s chi-square test. There are just two general assumptions that data has to pass before undertaking a Pearson’s chi-square test.
