# Testing equality of proportions

I am comparing three proportions for age categories for categorical variables that have also categories. I used Chi-square test but I found that SPSS gave me a note which is for example: a. 2 cells (33.3%) have expected count less than 5. The minimum expected count is .23.

What is the solution>
