Adding a paired preference test
This topic explains how to add a paired preference test to a table. For information on adding a column proportions, column means, or chi-square statistics test, see Adding or removing a statistical test.
You can add the paired preference test either to an axis or to a variable. Adding the test to an axis affects only the current table, while adding the test to a variable means that it is also available for use in other tables. The paired preference test is carried out at the 5% significance level.
