Wald Chi Square in proc surveyfreq p-value

[ Edited ]

If I am running a Weld Chi Square test along with a proc surveyfreq, that is:

 

proc surveyfreq data=malaria_data;
tables treatment*religion / wchisq;
cluster village;
weight weight;
run;

 

Is the Pr>F the same as the p-value in that if Pr>F is greater than 0.05 (alpha value), we can accept the null hypothesis that the two variables are indepedent, leading us to believe that randomization into a treatment group has worked in regards to the characteristic of religion?

Re: Wald Chi Square in proc surveyfreq p-value

Yes. In SAS procedures the output column for the p-values will be labeled as "Pr > statistic" where statistic might be "t" for a t-statistic, "F"  for an F statistic, "ChiSq" for a chi-square statistic, and so on.

 

Small values in that column indicate a  rejection of the null hypothesis at the specified significance level.
