The test-statistic z is given by z! S  n1 n1  n2  1 / 2 n1n2 n1  n2  1 / 12 where S is the test-statistic based on the sample with n1 observations. Under the null hypothesis, z has approximately a standard normal distribution. Ⅲ A modified z-statistic is available when there are ties (see Hollander and Wolfe, 1999). , before and after treatment. We first calculate the differences zi = yi1 – yi2 , between each pair of observations. Ⅲ To compute the Wilcoxon signed-rank statistic T +, form the absolute values of the differences zi and then order them from least to greatest.

From an organizational point of view, it is a good idea to keep a record of commands carried out during the analysis process. Such a record (“SPSS program”) allows for quick and error-free repetition of the analysis at a later stage, for example, to check analysis results or update them in line with changes to the data file.
