This dataset is designed for teaching Pearson’s chi-squared test. The dataset is a subset of data derived from the 2006 China Health and Nutrition Survey (CHNS) 2006 survey of adults, and the example shows how to test whether smoking behaviour in China differs in a statistically significant way between men and women. The dataset file is accompanied by a teaching guide, a student guide, and a how-to guide for SPSS.

The Teaching Guide is designed for faculty who are teaching research methods and statistics, with suggestions on how to use the dataset in lab exercises, in homework assignments and as exam questions. The Student Guide introduces the method for students, and can be used in teaching to provide students with an introductory overview of the method or test. The How-to Guide shows how to perform the technique or test using data analysis software.
