  2. Difference: You chose Proportional Variable of Interest. Your variable of interest is proportional, meaning it is usually a percentage or ratio.

  4. One Group Variable: You chose More Than Two Options. Your group variable takes on more than two values. For example, which day of the week did the customer buy your product (M/T/W/Th/F/S/S), or what is the customers eye color (blue/green/brown), etc.
  5. More Than Two Options: You chose More Than 10 In Every Cell (and more than 1000 in total). This means you have more than 10 rows of data (subjects or participants) for each option of your variable of interest and you have more than 1000 subjects or participants in total.
