Spss .000

#1
Hi, I've got a report to do for my Quantitative Methods course. We were given a dataset, had to chose our own hypotheses then run tests to find significance.

The problem i'm having is, the majority of my Pearson's Chi-square tests i'm running are telling me there's 0.000 significance. I'm not sure why this is but it doesn't seem right.

(In case anyone was wondering we have only to run either Chi-square, T-test or regression)

I have no idea what i'm doing wrong so any advice would be welcomed.

It's very possible that you didn't do anything wrong. SPSS reports a p-value of 0.000 when it is smaller than 0.001 which can happen if you have a dataset with a decent effect size and/or large enough sample size.

Thank you for your reply.

To be honest, this is part of a sociology course and i'm barely passing. I have a suspicion i'm doing something wrong, I've been sitting here for 6 hours running tests but i'm not entirely sure i'm using the data correctly.
