Subject:      Interpretation problem with Missing Value Analysis Module
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII

Dear all, 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. Brad Wilson.
