When looking at a statistics hypotheses such as, Suicide will be supported when faced with a terminal illness just at letting one die? When looking at surveys it was a yes/no question. Does this make suicide and letting one die both nominal since there is no order to the question? I am tying to figure out which formula to use in a cross tabulation that will give the most accurate level of association lambda, gamma, and Person's r. But need to know if I am looking at nominal or ordinal?
To clarify, does the outcome have exactly two alternative values? If not, what are the values and do they take a meaningful order? If it's just two values, it doesn't matter whether they have an order, since you'll only be comparing one to the other somehow.
Second, with what kind of variable(s) are you cross-tabulating the outcome? Nominal? Ordinal (with three or more values)? Continuous?
