I'm often sharing data around performance and typically cut the data by gender to show differences around male vs female. So for example, I'll say 19% of males (which represents 550 out of 2800 total males) received an exceeds rating, while only 12% of females (which represents 300 out of 2500 total females) received an exceeds rating. I'm always asked "Is that difference significant?"
Which test would be preferred for measuring if the difference between males and females is significant? The available performance ratings are below, meets or exceeds, and gender is only male or female.
