As in the previous case, for the contingency table 2 x 2, the maximum value of contingency coefficient is:
The Chi-square test was found to be significant to 95%, as shown in Table 1, and the degree of dependency between both items was measured through the Contingency Coefficient, which was found to be significant (C=0.374).
Girls exerted jealous behaviors to a more extent than boys [63.6% of girls versus 53.8% of the boys; [chi square](1) = 5.686, p < .05, contingency coefficient = .099].
(4) Chi-square = 30.33, Contingency Coefficient = .18
In relation to the climatic factors, association tests among year, temperature, and rainfall in relation to foundations, by means of Pearsones Contingency Coefficient showed that an association exists among these variables, but association degree among them is not very stronger.
The contingency coefficient for the table is .402, indicating that forty percent of the variance is explained in the relationship.
We calculated contingency coefficients (Kendall and Stuart 1979) and estimates of sensitivity and specificity in order to measure the validity of the probability of being classified as homebound using the operational definition, when the "criterion standard" is consistent with being "homebound." Specificity is the probability of being classified non-homebound when the "criterion standard" is consistent with being "non-homebound." This construct validity method, at a fundamental level, is an assessment of whether those persons classified as homebound and non-homebound truly acted the way one would expect homebound and non-homebound people to act.
Contingency Coefficient value of 0.851 p < 0.001 was found to be highly significant.
To interpret the strength of relationship coefficients (the Phi coefficient, Cramer's coefficient and the Contingency coefficient), a scale according to de Vaus [8] was used.
There is a little dependency among the portion of the useful, trivial and inexplicable rules and their occurrence in the set of the discovered rules extracted from the data matrix File A2, the contingency coefficient is statistically significant.
To detect possible linear dependence between the typologies derived from sexual attraction and the instrumental and expressive traits, as well as each of the typologies with sexual dimorphism, analysis of contingency tables was performed, using Pearson's chi square as a measure of association and the contingency coefficient as a measure of the magnitude of the association.
Crosstabs (Contingency Coefficient Analysis): The Crosstabs procedure forms two-way and multiway tables and provides a variety of tests and measures of association for two-way tables.
