    Kendall's Tau




    As part of my analysis report I did a chi square test. However, since my tables are too large normal post hoc procedure could not be followed. Because my mentor felt the analysis part would otherwise be to meager for a good grade, I was advised to do Kendall's Tau b test.

    How would you justify using this test? I feel it's sort of like chi square only statistically stronger.

    You might also look at the chi-square standardized residuals to see which groups contributed the most to the significant omnibus test.

    Thanks for your reply. Of course you are right that you could look at the residuals, but I have been told this info is open to interpretation errors.

    I am re-thinking my chi square approach as my data at time 2 violates the less than 5 rule.
