    probably any easy question for the stat inclined (not me)




    Hi all,
    A population of patients were tested for 3 viruses and have a variety of symptom questions associated.
    For example:
    | VIRUS A| VIRUS B| VIRUS C| NEGATIVE
    COUGH: NO | 97 | 20 | 68 | 100
    YES | 9 | 1 | 4 | 8

    Could any one advise on what would be the best statistical test to run to see whether their was a statistically significant proportion with cough for virus a.

    Thanks and respect in advance to anyone stats master who considers this.

    You have your data structured as a contingency table. Chi-square analysis is typically used for this type of data.
