A Data Science Central Community
Hi 
I know this is a basic question. I'm learning and thanks for all your help (in advance.)
I have one variable and it's an indicator variable. Respondents get a 1 if they are in one category; 2 if they are in the other. I want to determine if the number of 1 is statistically different than 2.
What test do I use?
Thanks,
Sarah

That is true. The two tests, test for proportion and Chisquare goodness of fit are one and the same in these cases.
P = 0.5
Assume sample size 100 and males are 45 and females are 55.
Test for proportion Z = 1
See Chi square
