# Re: st: How to obtain Rao-Scott chi(2) (not the F-stat) for two-way svy:tab

Thank you very much, Steve. However, for the same 2x2 table adjusting for the sampling weight, SAS produces (done by my colleague) Rao-Scott chi2(1) = 1.34 with p = .25, but I got F-stat = 1.48 with p = .22. Our boss is not comfortable considering these two statistics identical because their values are not close enough. I was wondering if SAS might do the Rao-Scott correction differently from Stata. Thank you much for your help! Bo

Bo MacInnis-

```
• Rao-Scott corrected chi square = (R-1)(C-1) x (corrected F) where R= no. of Rows C = no. of Columns (Stata 11 Manual, page 130)
```• In your example with R=2, C=2, the statistics are identical.
• SAS reports only the F approximation p-value, just as Stata does.

Dear Statlist mates,

I'd like to obtain the Rao-Scott chi(2) statistic for two-way svy:tab. The two-way svy:tab provides the Pearson statistics (uncorrected for design-effect as well a design effect adjusted based on Rao-Scott (1984). However, the design-based Pearson is converted into a F-stat. In my project, I'd need the chi(2) version of the Rao-Scott statistic (like what is provided in SAS, but I do not use SAS).
```
Here is the output from a two-way (2x2) svy:tab:
Pearson:
Uncorrected   chi2(1)         =    2.3737
Design-based  F(1, 2803)      =    1.4764     P = 0.2244

Thank you very much for your help!
Bo
