I am running SPSS version 22. While double-checking results for my thesis, I noticed that I get different results for the same univariate regression based on whether the dependent variable is entered alone or with a series of other variables. For example, the following syntax lines give me markedly different results, even though they involve the same dependent variable ("Ztotal_highest_pe") and the same predictor ("ZCapEud").
"regression/statistics COEFF CI anova R/dep = ZCESD_TOT ZSTAIT_SUM ZIIP_BPD Zemodiv ZMean_pe Ztotal_highest_pe/method = enter ZCapEud." <-- this gives me a B of .07, p = .46
"regression/statistics COEFF CI anova R/dep = Ztotal_highest_pe/method = enter ZCapEud." <-- this gives a B of .20, p = .02.
This is a little scary, as I thought these commands did the same thing (run a separate univariate regression for each variable in the "dep =" command). I noticed that for some other dependent variables, the results are identical, whereas others are not.
Thank you for any help you can offer!
