Outliers

Postby John_555 » Mon Feb 06, 2012 10:18 am

Hi everybody,

For detecting outliers I went to analyse on SPSS; Regression; Linear; Statistics and I activated the option Outliers outside with SD of 3. After removing these outliers I thought that my variable should be normally distributed but this wasn't the case. Now, what do I have to do in order to get a normal distribution? I checked with the histogram and everything but still it isn't normally distributed... :?:

Thanks in advance : )

Grz.
