Since the value of contingency coefficient is closer to the maximum value of contingency coefficient, we conclude that the correlation between the change in bank ownership and profitability is more intense and stronger.
However, significant differences were obtained in the perpetration of sexual aggression, with boys reporting higher rates, [chi square](1) = 12.721, p < .001, contingency coefficient = .147, but again, no differences was found in victimization where 40.8% of the boys and 42.9% of the girls reported having suffered it.
(5) Chi-square = 6.52, Contingency Coefficient = .09

The contingency coefficient for the table is .174, which indicates that only about seventeen percent of the variance is explained in the relationship.
The contingency coefficient for the table is .171, which again indicates that only about seventeen percent of the variance is explained in the relationship.
The strength of the relationship between the variables is, according to the value of Phi coefficient (0.316), Cramer's coefficient (0.316) and Contingency coefficient (0.302), direct and moderate; see Table 2.
The standardized residuals increased considerably and, similarly, both of the values (Cramer's V or the contingency coefficient) revealed a very significant statistical relation.
This relation was confirmed by Pearson's chi-square test ([chi square] = 17.043, p = .000) and corroborated by the Phi statistic ([phi] = 0.288, p = .000) and the contingency coefficient (0.276, p = .000).

Nonetheless, because all tables have the same dimensions, chi-square tests and associated contingency coefficients can be compared.
