Statistics for two-way contingency table analysis

p-value† <0.0001

Cramer's V†† 0.42


†p-value calculated from Chi-square test on contingency table. ††Cramer's V statistic (value can range from 0 to 1) measures the strength of association between the two variables analyzed in the contingency table, with 1 indicating perfect association and 0 indicating no association.
