Test if the parameters of a multinomial distribution are equal to the hypothesized values.
Select a cell in the dataset.
On the Analyse-it ribbon tab, in the
Statistical Analyses group, click Distribution, and then click the hypothesis
The analysis task pane opens.
In the Y drop-down list, select the categorical variable.
If the data are in frequency form, in the Frequency drop-down list, select the frequency count variable.
In the Hypotheses drop-down list, select the null and alternative hypothesis.
In the Hypothesized values group, select:
- Are all equal to set the hypothesized values
equal for each category.
- Are equal to specified, and then in the grid, under the Value column alongside each category, type values as either probabilities/proportions or number of occurrences.
To compare the p-value against a predefined significance level, in the Significance level edit box, type the maximum probability of rejecting the null hypothesis when in fact it is true (typically 5% or 1%).
