Isn't it a bug if there is a space for p-value and it's blank?
Sometimes this means we haven't found or written an implementation of
the algorithm for calculating it yet. (In this case, I haven't looked.)

Still a bug, right?

But in this case, if I'm not wrong, then the standard hypothesis test applies. So the implementation that calculates the p-value for correlation coefficients (which are Pearson r's) in CORR would apply to both these statistics (which are Pearson r's) in CROSSTABS.

I think John may be saying that this isn't the best approach. He's probably right, but I'm unfamiliar with the issue to which he alludes.

The irony of this ... is that the Internet is
both almost-infinitely expandable, while at the
same time constrained within its own pre-defined
box. And if that makes no sense to you, just
reflect on the existence of Facebook. We have
the vastness of the internet and yet billions
of people decided to spend most of them time
within a horribly designed, fake-news emporium
of a website that sucks every possible piece of
personal information out of you so it can sell it
to others. And they see nothing wrong with that.
