Karen wants to do two things:

Thanks for the detailed and informative answer May. Given that this is fairly complex, is there a command somewhere, e.g. TestEverythingYouCouldEverThinkOf, that would automate this process? If not, would such a command be difficult to create? Besides the current question on proportions, this would seem to be useful for any sort of problem involving group comparisons, such as in Anova.
