    Chi squared




    I am measuring if a number of different parameters of two populations changed with time
    Male (24 changed, 13 did not change)
    Female (32 changed, 5 did not changed)

    Is it valid to do a Pearson Chi squared instead of an exact Fischer test to show that more parameters changed in the female than male population
    Thanks

    I believe that the McNemar test could be used in this contexts.

    Why is Pearson Chi wrong? The expected values are all greater than 5

    It seems McNemar is for paired data but my data is not paired (I think...)?
