Contingency Table

The Contingency Table is a two-way frequency table. There is a row for each factor level and a column for each response level.

To produce the plot shown in Figure 7.7, follow the instructions in Example of Contingency Analysis.

Example of a Contingency Table

Note the following about Contingency tables:

The Count, Total%, Col%, and Row% correspond to the data within each cell that has row and column headings (such as the cell under American and Large).

The last column contains the total counts for each row and percentages for each row.

The bottom row contains total counts for each column and percentages for each column.

In Figure 7.7, focus on the cars that are large and come from America. The following table explains the conclusions that you can make about these cars using the Contingency Table.
