  1. * All χ2 values are significant at the .001 level, using both asymptotic and exact tests of significance. Expected N's for concordant and discordant tasks are 238 and 5, respectively.
  2. Note: For job titles which did not exist at a particular facility, the concordance range was adjusted to fit the number of facilities for which that job title did exist.
