# RE: st: chi2 on aggregate results

```No; it is not. 47.22 and 76.67 are observed column percents, and not predictions of the hypothesis.

The hypothesis being tested is that the row and column variables are independent. This may be clearer if you also use the -expected- option of -tabi-.

Thanks for the quick response. I guess it was the "col" option that I
was looking for, but just to confirm: Below, is the Pearson chi2(1) =
5.9421   Pr =  testing the hypothesis that the proportion of 76.67 in
a sample size of 30 equal to the proportion of 47.22 in a sample size
of 36?

Pearson chi2(1) =   5.9421   Pr = 0.015
