Error description

  • You work with IBM SPSS statistics 19.0.0.1 or 20 and create a
    Related Samples Sign Test and a Wilcoxon Matched pair
    signed-rank test for the same test variables on Analyze -
    Nonparametric Tests  - Related Samples dialog.
    After creation you compare the results for both tests on Model
    Viewer in the output window.
    For the Sign test you notice a confusing label for the x-axis on
    the histogram and on the text for Hypothesis Test Summary table.
    For example on the Wilcoxon test histogram you see the label
    "Current Salary - Beginning Salary" and on Sign test histogram
    you see "Beginning Salary - Current Salary". The label for sign
    test should be the same as for wilcoxon test.
    
    This was reported to IBM SPSS Development. However, this is only
    a minor label issue, the test results and histogram axis values
    are correct for both tests in both releases.
