In this paper the use of multivariate control charts for attribute data is proposed. These charts are based on chi-square statistics. Data from various categories can be summarized into a multivariate statistic, i.e., the chi-square statistic, and then the process can be monitored by plotting this statistic on a control chart. A numerical example is provided.
