Maarten,

many thanks for your efforts. 

Indeed, the results for this analysis are untabulated. It just says in the text at the top of page 27 (re. Prediction 2): "Using a chi-squared test for independence to determine if there are more or fewer firms than expected in each category, we show that each of these frequenciesis significant."

Ok, I had a chance to look at this article, but there is no
table on page 27, there is a reference to a table IV on the
next page. Are you refering to that? If that is the case
then that has absolutely nothing to do with a chi square
test of independence, it is just a collection of t-tests
comparing the averages of two groups on a set of variables.

Hope this helps,
Maarten
