Mantel-Haenszel Chi-Square Test

The Mantel-Haenszel chi-square statistic tests the alternative hypothesis that there is a linear association between the row variable and the column variable. Both variables must lie on an ordinal scale.

Keywords
htest
Usage
MHChisqTest(x, srow = 1:nrow(x), scol = 1:ncol(x))
Arguments
x
a frequency table or a matrix.

srow
scores for the row variable, defaults to 1:nrow.

scol
scores for the colummn variable, defaults to 1:ncol.

Details

The statistic is computed as $ Q_{MH} = (n-1) \cdot r^2$, where $r^2$ is the Pearson correlation between the row variable and the column variable. The Mantel-Haenszel chi-square statistic use the scores specified by srow and scol. Under the null hypothesis of no association, $Q_{MH}$ has an asymptotic chi-square distribution with one degree of freedom.

Value

A list with class "htest" containing the following components:
