CASE STUDY: CHI-SQUARE TEMPLATE
INSTRUCTIONS
To successfully complete this case study, the following instructions must be adhered to. Only paste tables/figures that contain pertinent information. Report only relevant the data from tables;
as well as your response to each question. In the write-up section, all information must be
provided in paragraph format. When statistical values are discussed, the numerical value and a
reference must be made to the table(s)/figure(s) where the value(s) can be found.
Chi-Square
A Pearson’s chi-square test, known as the chi-square test, is a statistical model used to determine if there is a difference between two or more groups of categorical variables. 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.
Two general assumptions must be passed by data before using a Pearson’s chi-square test. These assumptions are:
1. The variables of interest should be categorical data (either ordinal or nominal).
2. There should be two or more independent groups.In this study, we explore the difference in male and female athletes and type of injury. We will also determine if more male or female athletes require surgery. Lastly, we will explore whether injury is related to future disability.
The null hypotheses:
“There is no difference in proportion of male and female athletes who experience chronic
injury.”
“There is no difference in proportion of male and female athletes who experience acute
injury.”
“There is no difference in proportion of male and female athletes who require surgery for
their injury.”
“There is no difference in relationship between chronic injury and disability.”
“There is no difference in relationship between acute injury and disability.”
*Disability is defined as limitations in day-to-day life.

Phi and Cramér’s V are measures of the strength of association between two categorical variables. Phi is used with 2 × 2 contingency tables. You have two categorical variables-each variable has only two categories. Phi is calculated by taking the chi-square value and dividing it by the sample size and then taking the square root of this value. If one of the two categorical variables contains more than two categories, Cramér’s V is preferred to phi because phi fails to reach its minimum value of 0 (indicating no association) in these circumstances.
Goodman and Kruskal’s lambda (?)- the statistic measures the proportional reduction in error that is achieved when membership of a category of one variable is used to predict category membership of the other variable. A value of 1 means that one variable perfectly predicts the other, whereas a value of 0 indicates that one variable in no way predicts the other.

To report the analysis of a Pearson’s chi-square test, it is often useful to present the chi-square statistic, the degrees of freedom and the p-value. A breakdown of the reporting style for a Pearson’s chi-square test: There was no significant difference in male or female proportions between the control and treatment group (x2 (1) = 3.34; p=.057), where degrees of freedom and
the chi-square value are reported prior to p.
Write-up- Use these questions as a guide to write an abstract (paragraph). Use past tense.

2. When would we use Chi-square and why?
3. What is the Pearson Chi-Square, and is it significant? How do you know?
4. What is Fisher’s exact test? Is it relevant/significant?

6. What are your thoughts on the finding of this analysis, and what are the practical application(s) of this finding? Elaborate on what the study means, why, how you know, and relate the findings to exercise physiology knowledge. Use references if needed.
