Abstract

The authors would like to correct the following erroneous statement: “All scores that were identified as outliers using SPSS (Version 25: quartile ± 1.5∗interquartile range) were replaced by the median for further analyses to ensure the results were not driven by a small number of extreme values (Orr, Sackett, & Dubois, 1991). The use of 1.5∗interquartile range is the default setting in SPSS and the use of this measure is preferable as the mean and SD are greatly affected by outliers (Leys et al., 2013).” In fact, “extreme values” as defined by SPSS were replaced with the median. As such the article should read: “All scores that were identified as extreme values using SPSS (Version 25: quartile ± 3∗interquartile range) were replaced by the median for further analyses to ensure the results were not driven by a small number of extreme values (Orr, Sackett, & Dubois, 1991). The use of 3∗interquartile range is the default setting in SPSS and the use of this measure is preferable as the mean and SD are greatly affected by outliers (Leys et al., 2013).”
