13.1. Incorrect Inferences on Paired Data (StatTools 6)

Applies to:
StatTools 6.2.1–6.3.1 only

I'm doing a confidence interval or hypothesis test with paired numeric data. Some of my pairs are missing one value or the other. It seems like StatTools isn't computing the results correctly.

There was a known problem with inference on paired data in StatTools 6.2.1, 6.3.0, and 6.3.1. Those releases of StatTools treated missing numbers as zero instead of just ignoring the incomplete pairs. This affected the hypothesis test and confidence interval for paired data, as well as related calculations. The error has been fixed in our current software releases.

The solution is to upgrade to our current release. Please contact your Palisade sales office to obtain the upgrade.
