NPAR TESTS nonparametric test subcommands . . . [ /STATISTICS={DESCRIPTIVES} ] [ /MISSING={ANALYSIS, LISTWISE} {INCLUDE, EXCLUDE} ] [ /METHOD=EXACT [ TIMER [(n)] ] ]

`NPAR TESTS`

performs nonparametric tests.
Non parametric tests make very few assumptions about the distribution of the
data.
One or more tests may be specified by using the corresponding subcommand.
If the `/STATISTICS`

subcommand is also specified, then summary statistics are
produces for each variable that is the subject of any test.

Certain tests may take a long time to execute, if an exact figure is required.
Therefore, by default asymptotic approximations are used unless the
subcommand `/METHOD=EXACT`

is specified.
Exact tests give more accurate results, but may take an unacceptably long
time to perform. If the `TIMER`

keyword is used, it sets a maximum time,
after which the test will be abandoned, and a warning message printed.
The time, in minutes, should be specified in parentheses after the `TIMER`

keyword.
If the `TIMER`

keyword is given without this figure, then a default value of 5 minutes
is used.
