One aspect of this is that often people forget that in some tables there is
a certain logic to the categories, e.g. small, larger, very large. In this
situation you have an ordinal structure for which it is simplifying too
much to use Chi2 square tests which will not reflect the ordering. More
attention should then be given to measures such as Goodman & Kruskal's
For a single table you get Gamma in Stata by:
tab v1 v2, gam
This can also be worked with like Mantel Haenzel summary of 2x2x2 tables in
tables of any dimension with the socalled partial gamma or weighted gamma
In Stata the procedure partgamm will do this, including giving confidence
intervals for Gamma. The normal Partgam was made by Svend Kreiner and I.
You get partgam by: findit partgam
or send me a mail and I will send it to you.
