Can anyone tell me whether the Chi Square statistic that SPSS provides when you run the Nonparametric test for k samples is equivalent to the H statistic. We have run a lot of these tests and are putting the report together and Huck and Cormier's text provides different citation formats depending on whether the statistic from the Kruskal Wallis test is H or a Chi Sq. value. The confusion is compounded by the fact that the SPSS 7.5 Users guide calls it the Kruskal Wallis H test, but then the output example shown in the book (and in the output we get from running the test) clearly has it labeled as a chi sq. Are these equivalent values? Does anyone have a reference for calculating this H if they are different, and tables of critical values? Any info would be most greatly appreciated.
