# Testing for the educational differences between survival curves

Now run the survdiff function for any differences in education:

```> survdiff(SurvObj ~ Xeducation, data = ChurnStudy)Call:survdiff(formula = SurvObj ~ Xeducation, data = ChurnStudy)                                N Observed Expected (O-E)^2/E (O-E)^2/VXeducation=Bachelor's Degree 1186      592    594.8   0.01291   0.07392Xeducation=Doctorate Degree    88       45     45.4   0.00301   0.00382Xeducation=Master's Degree    214      114    110.9   0.08896   0.12417 Chisq= 0.1  on 2 degrees of freedom, p= 0.94
```

Now look at the p value. The p value for the chi-square test is 0.94. That means that we cannot conclude that a significant difference exists for the education survival curves.

This also suggests having a closer look at the following plot. We can see ...
