2-way Contingency Table Analysis

Uploaded 01 Nov 2017

This page computes various statistics from a 2-by-2 table. It will calculate the Yates-corrected chi-square, the Mantel-Haenszel chi-square, the Fisher Exact Test, and other indices relevant to various special kinds of 2-by-2 tables:

  • analysis of risk factors for unfavorable outcomes (odds ratio, relative risk, difference in proportions, absolute and relative reduction in risk, number needed to treat)
  • analysis of the effectiveness of a diagnostic criterion for some condition (sensitivity, specificity, prevalence, pos & neg predictive values, adjusted predictive values, pos & neg likelihood ratios, diagnostic  and error odds ratios)
  • measures of inter-rater reliability (% correct or consistent, mis-classification rate, kappa, Forbes' NMI)
  • other measures of association (contingency coefficient, Cramer's phi coefficient, Yule's Q)
