## The Cochran-Armitage Trend Test

### Description

This function conducts the Cochran-Armitage trend test to a 2 by k contingency table. It will report the test statistic (Z) and p-value. A linear trend in the frequencies will be calculated, because the weights (0,1,2) will be used by default.

### Usage

CATT(binomial,ordinal,table)


### Arguments

 ordinal the vector of the ordinal variable binomial the vector of the binomial variable table option, the contingency table of table(binomial,ordinal)

### Value

 Z the test statistic p.value the p value of the hypothesis test
