# How do I test for a relationship between two ordinal variables? [duplicate]

I have two likert scale questions:

1: not well at all, a little likely, somewhat likely, likely, very likely

2: not well at all, a little, somewhat, quite well, very well


I am trying to see if there is a relationship/correlation between the responses to the two questions. How can I test this?

• The short answer is that you can probably just use a chisq test of independence and then assess the contingency table for direction. – RickyB Apr 7 '18 at 14:44
