Hi Frank,

To simplify the task of running pairwise Mann-Whitney's U tests, you can use the following macro:

Also, instead of Bonferroni (too conservative), you can select other methods of adjusting the p-values (more sensitive), while controlling the experimentwise alpha level:

As a matter of fact, if you had SPSS 12 (or newer), you could use OMS to extract the p-values and combine both macros into one. But you tell you have SPSS 10.1.



FJG> Can anyone suggest a post-hoc comparison test, using SPSS, as a follow-up to FJG> the Kruskall-Wallis Test? I am looking for a pairwise ranking post-hoc test FJG> that controls the significance level for the entire family of comparisons. FJG> Does SPSS offer this feature? I am using version 10.1.
