[ /CHISQUARE=var_list[(lo,hi)] [/EXPECTED={EQUAL|f1,f2…fn}] ]

The `/CHISQUARE`

subcommand produces a chi-square statistic for the differences
between the expected and observed frequencies of the categories of a variable.
Optionally, a range of values may appear after the variable list.
If a range is given, then non integer values are truncated, and values
outside the specified range are excluded from the analysis.

The `/EXPECTED`

subcommand specifies the expected values of each
category.
There must be exactly one non-zero expected value, for each observed
category, or the `EQUAL`

keyword must be specified.
You may use the notation

to specify `n`*`f``n`
consecutive expected categories all taking a frequency of `f`.
The frequencies given are proportions, not absolute frequencies. The
sum of the frequencies need not be 1.
If no `/EXPECTED`

subcommand is given, then equal frequencies
are expected.
