Basic Logic
Chi Square is a test of significance based on bivariate
tables.
We are looking for significant differences between
the actual cell frequencies in a table (fo) and those
that would be expected by random chance (fe).
The data are often presented in a table format. If
starting with raw data on two variables, a bivariate
table must be created first.

Bivariate Tables:
Must have a title.
Cells are intersections of columns and rows.
Subtotals are called marginals.
N is reported at the intersection of row and
column marginals.
