weighted data

    Can a ratio of performance be used to measure dependence and assign weights in a weighted average?

    With only a modest grasp of inferential stats and maths in general, I've been wondering how one might derive the weights for a weighted average from a variable that isn't as straightforward as a frequency score. Consider the following scenario. Let's say I have measurements of effectiveness for...

    N changes when weighting cases in SPSS

    Hello! I'm stuck here while analyzing data in SPSS and I could really use some help. I'm weighting cases in my dataset, but when I run any analysis the N in the output has changed from 189 to 176. This puzzles me, each case has a weighted value when I check my dataset. Where do I go wrong? This...

    Cronbach's alpha with weighted data

    Hi I have a test whose reliability I want to calculate, using Cronbach's alpha. The first 18 questions are scored 0 or 1 (right or wrong). The final 7 questions are scored 0, 1 or 2 (because they are not dichotomously right or wrong, there exists a 'half right' possibility). Is it correct...
