Casewise Diagnostics

Desmond Steyn
Good day

Does SPSS Casewise diagnostics produce the variables which are a chosen
standard deviation from the mean? Or are these standard deviations
calculated based on another item?

I read an Journal article regarding outlier detection which states that the
method of using the standard deviation around the mean method is incorrect,
and that the deviation around the median around the median is a much better
method. I think that the casewise diagnostics method in SPSS uses the mean
method.

Reference

Leys, C., et al., Detecting outliers: Do not use standard deviation around
the mean, use absolute deviation around the
median, Journal of Experimental Social Psychology (2013),

Members interested in this topic should note that Peter posted the same
question to ResearchGate.
