Log Likelihood Ratio Tests

The sensitivity of the chi-square test (Chap. 11) and the odds ratio test (Chap. 12) for testing cross-tabs is limited, and not entirely accurate if the values in one or more cells is smaller than 5. The log likelihood ratio test is an adequate alternative with generally better sensitivity, and, so, it must be absolutely recommended.
