Hallo,

I´ve got a question concerning the interpretation of the Shapiro-Wilk test results.
I don´t know the correct meaning of V, z and Prob>z in German. Could anybody tell me how to identify the normal distribution in the following case:

swilk c_ws6m c_ws2j c_stelle if zugeh==2
Shapiro-Wilk W test for normal data
Variable Obs W V z Prob>z

c_ws6m 87 0.88729 8.290 4.656 0.00000
c_ws2j 87 0.99142 0.631 -1.015 0.84484
c_stelle 87 0.98980 0.750 -0.632 0.73638


Thanks a lot for your support!
