Hi everyone - I had to run a chi square test assessing differences between two groups on an outcome variable with 5 response options. There were significant associations, which I know how to report. I’m just wondering how to really interpret the specific results for each individual response category between groups (e.g., strongly agree, slightly agree, neither agree nor disagree, slightly disagree, strongly disagree).
Just because for one response category (e.g., strongly agree) group A has a higher proportion than group B, doesn’t mean group A is more likely to strongly agree overall…I hope this makes sense. Thank you.
