Medical Statistics FAQs

Why are all my data values showing as 'strings' even though they look numeric? 

I presume the data is transferred from Excel. In Excel, if a single cell contains a character other than a numeric data type, it will render the whole column as string data type. There is no easy conversion solutions while in SPSS package. Return to Excel and carefully locate the offending character(s). Clean up and load again into SPSS.
