Paired sample t-test - cannot be computed

Postby M.LB » Wed Apr 19, 2017 6:12 pm


I am trying to do a paired sample t test between values of SF-12 physical pre (A) and post (B). This is my syntax:

T-TEST PAIRS=A_SF12PhysicaHealth WITH B_SF12PhysicaHealth (PAIRED)


However, I always get this message:
"The correlation and t cannot be computed because there are no valid pairs"
And no output.

I am comparing 20 data entries with 20 other data entries.
How can I get rid of this issue? Did I miss something?

I imported my data from Excel.

Any help appreciated...

Initial reaction is that the data are not imported right of the measurement levels are set wrong but can you post a photo of your data and ..........
