Create a 2 x 2 table (Table 1) with columns “cases” and “controls” and rows “A allele” and “G allele”. Populate the fields with the corresponding values.
Calculate the odds ratio for getting the disease if you have the A allele. ___________________
To determine the statistical significance of this odds ratio, perform chi-square analysis. Chi-square simply compares observed values versus expected values if there was no association.
Step 1: Create a 2 x 4 table (Table 2) with columns “observed” and “expected” and rows “case A”, “control A”, “case G”, “control G”.
Step 2: Insert the observed data into Table 2.
Step 3: Calculate the expected frequency of the A and G alleles for cases and controls, assuming NO association. This is done by:
Expected A cases = (A cases + A controls) / (total cases + controls)
Expected A controls = Expected A cases (because assuming no association)
Expected G cases = (G cases + G controls) / (total cases + controls)
Expected G controls = Expected A cases (because assuming no association)
Step 4: Insert the expected values into Table 2.
Step 5: Calculate chi square or enter the data in Table 2 into the chi square table on the “chi-square calculator” graphpad website:
