Subject: Kappa Statistic
Hi there. I am trying to calculate the kappa statistic for inter-rater
agreement between two raters using PROC FREQ. My problem occurs when I
have an mXn table rather than an nXn table. This occurs for me when
there are three choices from which the raters have to choose: 1, 2, 3.
Rater A chooses 1 sometimes, 2 sometimes, and 3 sometimes. But Rater B
never chooses option 3. This results in a 2X3 table, and PROC FREQ will
not calculate the kappa statistic.
Is there a way to force PROC FREQ to print a row with frequencies of all
0 for option 3 for Rater B so that we have a 3X3 table from which to
calculate the kappa statistic? Or is there another way to handle this?
Thanks for your help.
