Errors in correlations

Postby ainarago » Fri May 29, 2015 10:18 am

Hi,
I am doing some correlation analyses and I am founding strange results. When I correlate two variables, the significance is 0,000 and Pearson r is also 0,000, which is not posible. Moreover, mean values are incorrect because the SPSS indicate that the mean of one of the variables is 0,00000 and that is not posible based on that variable`s values. What is happening? Could be an error of the data base?

Thanks in advance,

Ainara

in addition to what statman said (we need more info, basically) try to run a test on a different dataset, and check the data manually.

I'm sorry, I am using Windows and SPSS v.21. Anyways, I have found the problem, it was just that the configuration of the region and lenguage in my computer was changed and the SPSS didn`t recognize data with commas, so it was doing bad all the analysis. Sorry for any inconvenience.
