Assessing One-Way Frequencies
Introduction to the One-Way Case
Let us start with the simplest example: examining the distribution of observations in a single categorical variable, like the Size variable in the textbook example. We refer to counts derived from a single categorical variable as “one-way” frequencies. There are two major possibilities here, namely:
Assessing the distribution of one-way frequencies
Assessing one specific category
The following sections expand on these options.
Assessing Distribution of One-Way Frequencies
The distribution of a single categorical variable can generally only be assessed against some benchmark distribution. In the previous section, I gave two examples, namely:
Testing your ...
