Hello

We are running a priori multiple statistical tests on a database of 1000
patients.  We plan to use Bonferroni's correction for repeated analyses.
In one instance, the p value for a chi squared test was "Pr = 0.000". This
test was run with the tabulate command.

In this instance, I'm not certain how many zero's there are to complete
Bonferroni's correction.

How may I find that out?

Tnank you in advance,
Usually if you type -return list- or -ereturn list- after a command you see that values have been returned as scalars or macros, with a lot more precision than what has been displayed. Some commands also include an option for a bonferroni or other adjustment.
