I've got this question regarding which statistical i should use :
1. Research is being done into the level of violent crime across Africa. In 2012, 34% of the population in Africa had been a victim of at least 1 violent crime in the past year.
a. It is believed that this percentage is not the same for all countries in Africa, instead it varies by region. What test in SPSS would be the most appropriate for determining (at the 5% level) whether or not there is a significant association between region and being a victim of at least 1 violent crime? To answer this, assume that the variable for crime is binary (where 0 means the respondent has not been a victim of at least 1 violent crime and 1 means they have). Briefly give a reason for the test you have chosen.
- As Region would be a categorical variable, and being a victim of violent crime could also be a categorical variable (because its split up into 0 (no crime) and 1 (experienced crime). With two categorical variables i can perform a chi square test for independence. Are there better tests to use rather than chi square .
