## What is the p-value in SPSS?

The p-value is labeled as “Sig.” in the SPSS output (“Sig.” stands for significance level). To find the correct “Sig.”, look in the section of the “Independent Samples Test” output labeled “t-test for Equality of Means” and you will find a column labeled “Sig.

## How do you calculate weight in SPSS?

Weighting cases in SPSS works the same way for both situations. To turn on case weights, click Data > Weight Cases. To enable a weighting variable, click Weight cases by, then double-click on the name of the weighting variable in the left-hand column to move it to the Frequency Variable field. Click OK.

**How do you use sampling weights in SPSS?**

To weight data in SPSS, select from the menu: Data → Weight Cases… In the Weight Cases dialog box that opens, you click the dot next to “Weight cases by” and then move the weight variable (wtcombnr) into the Frequency Variable: box. Then click OK.

**What are weighting variables?**

A weight variable provides a value (the weight) for each observation in a data set. The i_th weight value, wi, is the weight for the i_th observation. For most applications, a valid weight is nonnegative. A zero weight usually means that you want to exclude the observation from the analysis.

### What is p-value in stats?

The p-value is a number, calculated from a statistical test, that describes how likely you are to have found a particular set of observations if the null hypothesis were true. P-values are used in hypothesis testing to help decide whether to reject the null hypothesis.

### How do you assign a weightage to a variable?

To find a weighted average, multiply each number by its weight, then add the results. If the weights don’t add up to one, find the sum of all the variables multiplied by their weight, then divide by the sum of the weights….2. Multiply the weight by each value

- 50(. 15) = 7.5.
- 76(. 20) = 15.2.
- 80(. 20) = 16.
- 98(. 45) = 44.1.

**What is WLS weight in SPSS?**

The REGWGT or WLS weight in the REGRESSION procedure is a weight that is generally used to correct for unequal variability or precision in observations, with weights inversely proportional to the relative variability of the data points.

**Why do we use weights in data?**

Advantages of weighting data include: Allows for a dataset to be corrected so that results more accurately represent the population being studied. Diminishes the effects of challenges during data collection or inherent biases of the survey mode being used.
