Hello!

Probably this is a very easy question:

I have 2 variables (see attachement). They both consists of three parts, respectively numbered (1,2,3) .

So 1=depression, 2=panic and 3=generalized fear . In the table I have these percentages, so for example how many percent are depressive in early life.

I did a chi square test and it is significant. Now I want to know from the people who are early in life, if there is a significant effect between depression and panic.

I have two questions:

1. Is it okay for me to do a chi square test? Because I have these dummy variables

2. Is it okay for me to do another chi square test, where I make a new variable with only depression and panic in it?

Thanks in advance!
