  1. Total number of consultations for knee problem in 2010, n = 550
  2. Bolded numbers = cells with significant adjusted standardized residuals greater than +1.96 (observed frequency is more than the expected frequency)
  3. NB: Chi Square tests were applied to test for differences between the stratified groups by symptom or diagnosis (no analysis was carried out on the sub-category of trauma / non-trauma as cell numbers were considered too low, n < 5). Data for diagnosis: non-trauma are presented for reader interest
  4. * X 2 = 27.05, df = 3, p < 0.001
  5. X 2 = 6.67, df = 1, p = 0.01
  6. X 2 = 30.56, df = 2, p < 0.001
