Subject: Significance Test for 2 independent Chi-Squares
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
I have two chi-square tables that represent data from seperate years,
1997 and 1998.
Each table consists of 2 categorical ordinal variables representing
(5 levels) and Seniority (4 levels). Both are statistically significant
(p <0.05). But I want to ask if the two years are significantly
different from one another. I could do a logistic regression but it
seems there shouold be an earier and more straightforward way of
answering this question. This question seems like it should be
elementary, but I'm not sure how it should be accomplished. Any help
would be appreciated.
