SPSS 1: Getting Started
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.
