### Can you do chi square in SPSS?

In SPSS, the Chi-Square Test of Independence is an option within the Crosstabs procedure. Recall that the Crosstabs procedure creates a contingency table or two-way table, which summarizes the distribution of two categorical variables.

#### How do you Analyse data using chi square?

Let us look at the step-by-step approach to calculate the chi-square value:

- Step 1: Subtract each expected frequency from the related observed frequency.
- Step 2: Square each value obtained in step 1, i.e. (O-E)2.
- Step 3: Divide all the values obtained in step 2 by the related expected frequencies i.e. (O-E)2/E.

**What type of data do you need for a chi square test?**

The data used in calculating a chi-square statistic must be random, raw, mutually exclusive, drawn from independent variables, and drawn from a large enough sample. For example, the results of tossing a fair coin meet these criteria. Chi-square tests are often used in hypothesis testing.

**How do I report chi-square results in SPSS APA?**

Keep the following in mind when reporting the results of a Chi-Square test in APA format:

- Round the p-value to three decimal places.
- Round the value for the Chi-Square test statistic X2 to two decimal places.
- Drop the leading 0 for the p-value and X2 (e.g. use . 72, not 0.72)

## How do you check if data is reliable in SPSS?

To test the internal consistency, you can run the Cronbach’s alpha test using the reliability command in SPSS, as follows: RELIABILITY /VARIABLES=q1 q2 q3 q4 q5. You can also use the drop-down menu in SPSS, as follows: From the top menu, click Analyze, then Scale, and then Reliability Analysis.

### What does chi-square test tell you?

The chi-square test is a hypothesis test designed to test for a statistically significant relationship between nominal and ordinal variables organized in a bivariate table. In other words, it tells us whether two variables are independent of one another.
