Question in Chi-squared test, can I do it with percentage data?

 Hi all, I know Chi-squared test can be done with the frequency data by R function "chisq.test()", but I am not sure if it can be applied to the percentage data ? The example of my data is as follow: #############################################                           KSL   MHL   MWS   CLGC   LYGC  independent (%) 96.22  92.18  68.54   93.80   85.74 ############################################# Thanks Jeff         [[alternative HTML version deleted]] ______________________________________________ [hidden email] mailing list https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-helpPLEASE do read the posting guide http://www.R-project.org/posting-guide.htmland provide commented, minimal, self-contained, reproducible code.

If these are counts, it makes a difference if these are 96 out of 100 or 960000 out of 1000000. Dieter
