Another implementation of Pearson's Chi-square has been written to fit the needs in package DCLuster.
achisq.stat is the function that calculates the value of the statistic for the data.
achisq.boot is used when performing a non-parametric bootstrap.
achisq.pboot is used when performing a parametric bootstrap.
This statistic can be used to detect whether observed data
depart (over or above) expected number of cases significantly.
The test considered stands for relative risks among areas
to be equal to an (unknown) constant
the alternative hypotheses is that not all relative risks are equal.
The actual value of the statistic depends on null hypotheses. If we consider that all the relative risks are equal to 1, the value is
and the degrees of freedom are equal to the number of regions.
On the other hand, if we just consider relative risks to be equal, without
specifying their value (i.e.,
\lambda is unknown),
E_i must be substituted by
and the number of degrees of freedom is the number of regions minus one.
When internal standardization is used, null hypotheses must
be all relative risks equal to 1 and the number of degrees
of freedom is the number of regions minus one. This is due to the
fact that, in this case,
