Usage

chisq_stat(x, formula, response = NULL, explanatory = NULL, ...)

Arguments

x

A data frame that can be coerced into a tibble.

formula

A formula with the response variable on the left and the explanatory on the right.

response

The variable name in x that will serve as the response. This is alternative to using the formula argument.

explanatory

The variable name in x that will serve as the explanatory variable.

...

Additional arguments for chisq.test().

Details

A shortcut wrapper function to get the observed test statistic for a chisq test. Uses chisq.test(), which applies a continuity correction. This function has been deprecated in favor of the more general observe().
