Bivariate correlation output

Postby xbar » Fri Apr 24, 2015 9:31 am


Thank you for reading. I ran a bivariate correlation and I just want to make sure I understand the output correctly.
Looking at the table I think all the variables are significant. What I do not understand is the line beneath, "significant at the 0,01 level" I thought all data looked at 0.05 significance level?

Is the next step I should take a partial correlation?

spss distinguishes between .05 (one star) and .01 (two stars). as you can see, all are < .01 so all have 2 stars.
In many fields, <.001 is also distinguished, so figure out if that is the case for your field as well.
