Subject: Interpretation problem with Missing Value Analysis Module
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII
I have searched high and low for this in SPSS manuals.
I am considering using a data imputation method within spss. I am aware that before doing this I need to calculate whether the data is MCAR (missing completely at random) or MAR (missing at random).
I am seeking interpretation of the following:
Little's MCAR test: Chisquare=159.792, df=140, Prob=.121.
What does this mean?
What is the null hypothesis?
h0: observed values= imputed values.
I thank you in advance.
