# Problem in interpretation of result of Pearson chi-square?

We are conducting research to examine a relationship between some triggers and migraine with aura.

the sample obtained by a questionnaire to and the sample classified into two categories (diagnosed with migraine with aura, undiagnosed) and they were asked about there belief of the effect of the triggers (do you notice a relationship between eating hotdog and having an attack of migraine with aura?) I wanted to test whether there is a significant relationship between the trigger and having migraine with aura

In Pearson chi-square, it shows a significant relationship between migraine with aura and (one of the examples) eating hotdog The problem is the frequency of people who report (no relationship between eating hotdog and having an attack of migraine with aura), is greater than the frequency of people who report that there is a relationship between eating hotdog and having an attack of migraine with aura.

Can someone help me with the interpretation of this result because I'm so confused?

• Welcome to CrossValidated, Narjes. You will get better (and more prompt) answers if your question is clear. Are you asking about how to interpret the statistical result, or asking for a more appropriate analysis, or asking what your data can tell you about migraine auras? You should probably say more about what the data represent and how the samples were obtained. Commented Dec 20, 2019 at 19:44
• In addition to the suggestions in another comment, it would be helpful to show the two-way table of numbers in addition to (or rather than) the bar chart.
