In my previous article, we looked at how you can calculate linear dependencies between two continuous variables with covariance and correlation. Both methods use the means of the two variables in their calculations. However, mean values and other population moments make no sense for categorical (nominal) variables. For instance, if you denote “Clerical” as 1 and “Professional” as 2 for an occupation variable, what does the average of 1.5 signify? You have to find another test for dependencies—a test that
