For my user study, I am trying to find out to what extent people prefer to move by foot. They had the option to rank their preference for 'walking', 'jogging' and 'running' for a several amount of questions. Now I want to interpret the data by means of a Kruskal-Wallis test (Analyze -> Non Parametric Test -> Independent samples).

The following analysis gives me pairwise comparisons. However, I do not understand how the pairwise comparisons' plot has been created when I look at the table below it. How is the plot from the pairwise comparison generated when looking at the table below the plot?

  • $\begingroup$ I psesume the very plot is drawn by some sort of multidimensional scaling or neural net. It doesn't bother me how it was drawn, really. Does it, for you? $\endgroup$ – ttnphns May 29 '14 at 6:35
