1 WHY SCREEN DATA? There are four main purposes for screening data prior to conducting a multivariate analysis. The first of these deals with the accuracy of the data collected. Obviously, the results of any statistical analysis are only as good as the data analyzed. If inaccurate data are used, the computer program will run the analysis (in all likelihood), and the researcher will obtain her output. ). The researcher will then proceed to interpret the results and draw conclusions. However, unknown to her, they will be erroneous conclusions because they will have been based on the analysis of inaccurate data.
In effect, this process converts a distribution with negative skewness to one with positive skewness. It should be noted that interpretation of the results of analyses of this variable must also be reversed (Tabachnick & Fidell, 2007). Transformations can be easily obtained in various statistical packages, including SPSS. 3. Once variables have been transformed, it is important to reevaluate the normality assumption. Following the confirmation of a normal or near-normal distribution, the analysis may proceed typically, resulting in vastly improved results (Tabachnick & Fidell, 2007).
Under New Value, click System-missing, then click Add. Once this transformation has been made, be sure to indicate that all other values should be copied. ) Now examination for missing data may begin. 6. Recode Into Different Variables: Old and New Values Dialog Box. 2 By default, SPSS displays variable labels. To display variable names as shown here, go to the Edit, Options, General tab and, under Variable Lists, check Display names. Click on the Output Labels tab, then select Names, both from Variables in item labels shown as in the Outline Labeling box and from Variables in labels shown as in the Pivot Table Labeling box.
