## Is the chi square test parametric or nonparametric?

The Chi-square test is a non-parametric statistic, also called a distribution free test. Non-parametric tests should be used when any one of the following conditions pertains to the data: The level of measurement of all the variables is nominal or ordinal.

## What do you mean by parametric and nonparametric test?

Parametric tests are those that make assumptions about the parameters of the population distribution from which the sample is drawn. This is often the assumption that the population data are normally distributed. Non-parametric tests are “distribution-free” and, as such, can be used for non-Normal variables.

**Why is chi square test a non-parametric test?**

The term “non-parametric” refers to the fact that the chi‑square tests do not require assumptions about population parameters nor do they test hypotheses about population parameters.

**What are parametric test equivalent for chi square test?**

Poisson regression. Here is an example of a potential table you may be describing. A poisson regression with additive effects should yield the same expected cell count as the chi-square procedure.

### What is the definition or description of parametric test?

A parametric test is a statistical test which makes certain assumptions about the distribution of the unknown parameter of interest and thus the test statistic is valid under these assumptions.

### Where chi-square test is used?

A chi-square test is used to help determine if observed results are in line with expected results, and to rule out that observations are due to chance. A chi-square test is appropriate for this when the data being analyzed is from a random sample, and when the variable in question is a categorical variable.

**What is parametric test example?**

Parametric tests assume a normal distribution of values, or a “bell-shaped curve.” For example, height is roughly a normal distribution in that if you were to graph height from a group of people, one would see a typical bell-shaped curve. This distribution is also called a Gaussian distribution.

**What is the parametric and nonparametric test write the name of the tests?**
