Topic 6: A – Two-Way (Contingency) Tables
CO-7: Use statistical software to analyze public health data.
The following video illustrates exploratory data analysis in Case CC where we are investigating the association between two categorical variables using two-way tables (contingency tables). In SPSS we will use CROSSTABS. We illustrate adding row, column, and overall percentages to the default table output and point out a few options which will be needed later in the course.
