I decided to use Chi quare test because I have a Indipendent categorical variable (with 2 levels) and a dependent categorical variable (with 5 levels).

I ran Descriptives, Crosstabs, I selected Chi square, observed and expected results, row percentages an in Nominal Phi and Cramer's v.

I got significance because I got a Pearson coefficient 13.808a and a p-value = .017 / Likelihood Ratio 18.312 and p value = .003 (df=5)

But, I violated the assumption because reported a 5 cells (41.7%) have expected count less than 5. The minimum expected count is .89.

What should I do now? Did I do something wrong? Is my relation significant even if I violated the assumption? Thanks a lot.
