# Solved – Reporting \$chi^2\$ test results in APA format

I'm trying to report the results of my chi-square test for independence in APA format but these results don't resemble the examples I've seen especially the 4 digits before the period in the chi-square test results i.e. 9355.19 and 9556.44. Am I doing this right?

"the χ2 tests showed significant
results in the association of this
knowledge with years professional of
experience χ2 (4, N = 302) = 9355.19,
p = 0.83 and with professional level
χ2 (4, N = 302) = 9556.44, p = 0.30."

These are the values:

``         I agree I disagree I don't know |Total Level 1      141         26           26 |  193 Level 2       29          5           12 |   46  Level 3       43         10           10 |   63  ----------------------------------------------- Total        213         41           48 |  302 ``

Thank you very much for your help.

Given the data you posted in your comment, here are the results I get from R:

``> x <- matrix(c(141,29,43,26,5,10,26,12,10), nc=3) > x      [,1] [,2] [,3] [1,]  141   26   26 [2,]   29    5   12 [3,]   43   10   10 > chisq.test(x)      Pearson's Chi-squared test  data:  x  X-squared = 4.8007, df = 4, p-value = 0.3084 ``

So, the \$chi^2\$ statistic is actually 4.80. (The expected values are the ones you gave in your comment.)
