Diagnostics information: Paired preference test

When you run a statistical test on a table, UNICOM Intelligence Professional can create diagnostics information that shows the p values and some of the intermediate figures used to calculate the statistics. The information is in comma-delimited format, so you can open it in Microsoft Excel and perform calculations on the data. The information varies according to the test. Here is the information for the Examples of the paired preference test.
