What is is the meaning of this p-value ?

#1
i am trying to perform cox regression on survival data of tumor patients with the covariate "resection status". Patients had either biopsy (=0), partial resection(=1) or total resection of the tumor (=2).
I have trouble understanding the following: "total resection" (=2) is the reference value so "partial resection"(=1) and "biopsy"(=0) are compared to "total resection" and are assigned a p-value and an HR. WHAT is the meaning of the p-value behind the reference value though (that has nor HR assigned) - I highlighted this value green in the attached file.


The code looks like this:

COXREG KapOStime
/STATUS=Tod(1)
/CONTRAST (Resektion)=Indicator
/METHOD=ENTER Resektion
/CRITERIA=PIN(.05) POUT(.10) ITERATE(20).

Less is more. Stay pure. Stay poor.

No idea, cant really say ive seen someone use an outcome with three groups. In multinomial logistic you get two intercepts.

the orange pvalue is just a test of the model versus an empty model, so your model explains more than an empty model, but what is your model two survivals or not? Do you have a link to where you got your code from?
