  2. N = negligible degree of association, correlation < 0.1; S = Small degree of association, correlation 0.1 to < 0.30; M = medium degree of association, correlation 0.30 to < 0.5; L = large degree of association, correlation ≥ 0.5
  3. Bold = a perfect match between a priori and observed; italics = a difference of one category in which a priori < observed;
  4. bold italic = a difference of one category in which a priori > observed; underline = a difference of two categories in which a priori < observed; double underline = a difference of two category in which a priori > observed;
