Hi there,

I'm trying to use linear regression to analyse the Understanding Society dataset. However it seems like SPSS cannot test for the assumptions of linear regression /General Linear Model with complex samples. It does for the linear regression module, but not for Complex Samples General Linear Model.

I'm wondering if you have any ideas about this, seeing as it impacts on the ability for SPSS users to analyse regression for Understanding Society.

Thanks you in advance.

Dear Yuting,

We recommend using CSPLAN along with Complex Samples in SPSS to adjust for weights and complex survey design. What commands are you using?
