## Kappa Coefficient and Agreement Statistic

Hi all,

Assume that I have two columns, Bob and Mary, who rate four items with either a Y or a N. In the following case, no Agreement Statistic is present when doing Fit Y by X, because it appears that JMP thinks that Bob and Mary do not have the same categorical levels. How can I set column "Bob" to inform JMP that Bob can also take on values or Y or N? For example, if I change one of the columns in Bob to N, the Agreement Statistic feature is available again.

I feel like this should be specified in Column Properties somewhere, but I can't figure out how to make it work.

Thanks!

Hi Titus,

Try adding one more row to your data table with the N for Bob (either Y or N for Mary) and also add a Freq column with a 1 in every row except the new row – with the N in it for Bob – which should have a 0.

Use the Freq column in the Freq role in Fit Y by X and you should get the option for the Agreement Statistic.

When one of the raters always says the same thing (Bob, in this case) Kappa is zero, by definition. You can show this by adding a weight variable and a dummy observation where Bob says N but with a weight of zero.
