 statisques khi-carré de Pearson Explanation:C'est le caractère grec khi (plutôt qu'un x). Ordinarily you'd see (and hear) "chi-square" or "chi-squared" statistics in English, but some people feel a compulsion to use a proper adjectival form if there is one.

Explanation:
I am not a specialist in this area, but this is one answer thrown up by a quick Google:

And here are a couple more examples from the same search with different ways of expressing it:

...4, 1994, Pages 421-440 La Revue Canadienne de Statistique Overdispersed ... de dispersion devrait etre basée sur la statistique du khi-deux de Pearson ...

I think it is abundantly clear from the typography in my suggestion above that the distinction is clearly being made between the Greek character 'khi' and a simple letter 'X' — even though this streamlined sans serif font does somewhat simplify the traditional letter-form
