# Finding association between gender and favorite movie genre

I have a random sample of the following data on JMP. How do I find if there is an association between gender and favorite movie genre? I've been looking through different formulas and can't find anything that will work. Any help will be appreciated.

• are these all different subjects? i.e. did you ask different genre questions to the same person in this study, and if you did is there any way to link the subjects? basically, imagine that in an extreme case there were only two people: one man and one woman. it's an important detail – Aksakal Apr 1 '14 at 18:16

To get a better overview over your data, you should first build a two-way contingency table. I believe this is called "Contingency Analysis" in JMP. You will get a $2 \times k$ frequency table with two rows (say) for men and women and a column for each genre. You can then look at the row frequencies to compare the distributions by gender.
