The steps for interpreting the SPSS output for a Cochran-Mantel-Haenszel
2. In the Tests of Homogeneity of the Odds Ratio table, look under the Asymp. Sig. (2-sided) column. If the p-values are ABOVE .05, then continue with the analysis. If the values are BELOW .05, then researchers have violated this statistical assumption and should run separate bivariate analyses.
3. If researchers met the assumption above, then look in the Tests of Conditional Independence table under the Asymp. Sig. (2-sided) column.
If the p-values are BELOW .05, then researcheres have evidence of conditional independence between the groups on the outcome. This means that the association between the predictor and outcome variable is significantly different in the different levels of the conditional variable.
If the p-values are ABOVE .05, then researchers do not have evidence of conditional independence between the groups. This means that the groups do not differ in their relationships with the outcome variable according to what condition they are in.
