15.9.9 McNemar Test

     [ /MCNEMAR var_list [ WITH var_list [ (PAIRED) ]]]

Use McNemar’s test to analyse the significance of the difference between pairs of correlated proportions.

If the WITH keyword is omitted, then tests for all combinations of the listed variables are performed. If the WITH keyword is given, and the (PAIRED) keyword is also given, then the number of variables preceding WITH must be the same as the number following it. In this case, tests for each respective pair of variables are performed. If the WITH keyword is given, but the (PAIRED) keyword is omitted, then tests for each combination of variable preceding WITH against variable following WITH are performed.

The data in each variable must be dichotomous. If there are more than two distinct variables an error will occur and the test will not be run.
