If the value is around 1 then no relationship, no association
But before can interpret what Odds ratio is, we have to look at Chi Square

Eg breast cancer (y/n), child (y/n), breastfeed (y/n), how many children (y/n) (across)
Names of women going down
Hypothesis is basically the question
Null hypothesis (Ho) (no relationship)
Is there a relationship, which is H1
So we’ll be using chi square to test our odds ratio
Region of rejection: how much error are you willing to let into your decision
How confident are you that you made the right decision
Alpha is typically 0.5, so 0.5% error, and we allow this because we are always dealing with
Degrees of freedom= (rows-1)*(columns-1)
If in the assignment there is a percentage, convert that percentage into a whole number
No cell in matrix should be zero
