  1. *Chi-square test, Fisher-exact test is used when expected count cells < 5, are statistically significant at level of significance of 95% (p < 0.05), so reject the null hypothesis
  2. *Independent T- test is statistically significant at level of significance of 95% (p < 0.05)
  3. bold indicates statistically significant relation
  4. italic indicates the type of the test used
