By Craig A. Mertler, Rachel Vannatta Reinhart

Ideal for non-math majors, Advanced and Multivariate Statistical Methods teaches scholars to interpret, current, and write up effects for every statistical approach with out overemphasizing complex math. This hugely utilized method covers the why, what, while and the way of complicated and multivariate facts in a fashion that's neither too technical nor too mathematical. scholars additionally tips on how to compute each one process utilizing SPSS software program.

    Example text

    An outlier can exert a great deal of influence on the results of a statistical test. A single outlier, if extreme enough, can cause the results of a statistical test to be significant when, in fact, they would not have been if they had been based on all values other than the outlier. The complementary situation can also occur: An outlier can cause a result to be insignificant when, without the outlier, it would have been significant. Similarly, outliers can seriously affect the values of correlation coefficients.

    The output reveals some outlier problems within the example. The case summary shows category splits in that 44% (313/710) of the sample is very satisfied while 56% (397/710) is not satisfied. This split is not severe enough to delete this variable. 11) identifies the five highest and lowest scores for each group. Keep in mind that these values are not necessarily outliers. 12) generated reveals that both groups have some outliers. 13) support this finding but provide more information regarding the number of outliers.

    They are also referred to as prediction errors because they serve as measures of the differences between obtained and predicted values on a given variable. If standardized residual values are plotted against the predicted values, nonlinearity will be indicated by a curved pattern to the points (Norusis, 1998). In other words, residuals will fall above the zero line for some predicted values and below the line for other predicted values (Tabachnick & Fidell, 2007). Therefore, a relationship that does not violate the linearity assumption will be indicated by the points clustering around the zero line.
