test to determine if a population has a
specified theoretical distribution.

Example
Suppose that a die is tossed 120 times and
each outcome is recorded. We want to test
if the die is balanced.

EXAMPLE
A
machine is supposed to mix peanuts,
hazelnuts, cashews and pecans in the
ratio 5:2:2:1. A can containing 500 of
these mixed nuts was found to have 269
peanuts, 112 hazelnuts, 74 cashews, and
45 pecans. At a 0.05 level of significance,
test the hypothesis that the machine is
mixing the nuts in the ratio 5:2:2:1.
Test for Independence
 The
Chi-Square test can be used to test
the hypothesis of independence of two
variables of classification.
 The observed frequencies of this
classification is called a contingency
table.
 The row and column totals are called
marginal frequencies.

Example
Suppose that we wish to determine whether
the opinions of the voting residents of the
state of Illinois concerning a new tax reform
are independent of their levels of income.

Test for Homogeneity
 We
can also use the chi-square test to
determine the categories of the column
variable are homogeneous with respect
to each row.
Example
Suppose we select voters from100 LP, 150 UNA
and 150 Nationalist Party and record whether
they are for a proposed abortion law, against it,
or undecided.
