I'm not sure what this means. Can you explain further please.

OK. You say n = 52, but there are more than 52 replies. Can people pick more than one answer?

Did you have in mind beforehand to compare that one particulkar response with the other responses? Or was this particular response chosen after inspection of the data?

Apart from that: the data are repeated measures, i.e. any of the 54 participants chose yes or no for each of the 14 stimuli (plus "other).
To analyse such data appropriately you'll need the individual behaviour of each participant. In that case, you can compare the responses to arbeitsrechtshelden.de with the responses to e.g. anwaltheute.de (the next frequent choice) using McNemar's test.

With kind regards

If you do not have the individual respones, then you can test on basis of an artificial scenario. That is, you assume that all of those who said "yes" to anwaltheute.de also said "yes" to arbeitsrechtshelden.de.

Thank you for your reply. Attached, the individual answers. Unfortunately, I'm not very knowledgeable in statistics to do this test, Could you please support with this?. Highly appreciated your co-operation and understanding .

What is this done for, is it a homework assignment? I am very comfortable with giving
you my best advice, but I won't work for you.

You might perhaps take a look at this, which, amongst others, for example offers that.

Karabiner has some good advice, as usual.
I am assuming that you looked at the data after it was in and chose the largest, then asked is it significant?
A less conventional possibility could be a randomization test. You assume that responses are at random. Allocate the total number of positive responses to the subjects/options at random and find the total for each option. Find the maximum total. Write it down. Repeat many times to give you a sampling distribution of the maximum assuming no pattern to the responses. See where 34 fits in this distribution. If less than 5% of your sampling distribution is more than 34 then 34 is significant. kat
