Negative Value after Imputation

Postby BillFrets » Sat Aug 05, 2017 7:16 pm

Hello, I am new to SPSS and data science and am currently trying to complete the analysis of the data I generated for my senior honor thesis.

I'm currently having an issue with one of my variables when I run my descriptive statistics. I calculate the Mean, Maximum, Minimum, and std. deviation for each value, and for some reason get a negative value for one of my variables Mins. This should not be the case, as it is not possible to generate negative values with the type of data I am gathering.

The negative value only appears after I do an imputation to correct for missing data. Why is this? Am I doing something wrong?

I could really use some help, thanks.
