A tidier version of chisq.test() for goodness of fit tests and tests of independence.

chisq_test(x, formula, response = NULL, explanatory = NULL, ...)

Arguments

x

A data frame that can be coerced into a tibble.

formula

A formula with the response variable on the left and the explanatory on the right.

response

The variable name in x that will serve as the response. This is alternative to using the formula argument.

explanatory

The variable name in x that will serve as the explanatory variable.
