SPSS 1: Getting Started

LOCATION CHANGE: Atlanta Campus, Library North Classroom 1 computer lab (1st floor, near Saxby's coffee shop)

SPSS statistical software is a powerful application that can read and analyze data as well as generate reports and graphs. In this first workshop in our SPSS series, you’ll learn how to enter data and import data from other types of files (such as text and Excel files), define variables (defining and labeling codes, selecting appropriate levels of measurement), manipulate data (select cases and split files), transforming data (such as recoding and computing variables), and run descriptive statistics and simple graphs to prepare for more advanced statistical analyses.

Workshop Topics

  • Navigating SPSS
  • Entering and importing data
  • Defining variables
  • Manipulating and transforming data
  • Running descriptive statistics
  • Generating simple graphs

Prerequisites: Understanding of statistical concepts and procedures, including correlation, null hypothesis testing, t-tests, ANOVA and/or regression. We recommend this course to be taken in conjunction with statistics courses at GSU, or soon after taking a statistics course.

NOTE: This is the first workshop in a two-part series - SPSS 2 is the second.
