I have a table of data with one value for each month at a number oflocations. Clearly the monthly values at any location are correlated, so it seems to me appropriate to fit a quadratic curve across the months and test for differences in the coefficients between locations. What I cannot fathom how to do is to stop SPSS fitting and testing polynomials up to order 11, and therefore reporting no error term. Can anyone advise please whether a specific set of values after the POLYNOMIAL keyword can do this, or if I'm barking ... up the wrong tree / mad.
