Overview

Chi-Squared test (CHI)

             N * ( P(f,c) * P(f',c') - P(f,c') * P(f',c) )^2
 CHI(f,c) = -------------------------------------------------
                      P(f) * P(f') * P(c) * P(c')

                   N * (A*D - B*C)^2
          = -------------------------------
             (A+B) * (C+D) * (A+C) * (B+D)

suitable for large samples and none of the values of (A, B, C, D) < 5
