Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) is a comprehensive and flexible statistical analysis and data management solution produced by IBM and makes statistical data analysis straightforward. SPSS can take data from almost any type of file and use them to generate tabulated reports, charts, and plots of distributions and trends, descriptive statistics, and conduct complex statistical analyses.
WHY THIS SPSS COURSE?
SPSS is a widely used program for statistical analysis in social science. SPSS is a powerful suite of data analytics, reporting and modeling software. It is the data analytics software package of choice for people who need to analyze large amounts of quantitative data and is used as standard by a wide range of users who need to quickly and accurately carry out statistical analysis of that data such as market researchers, health researchers, survey companies, government, education researchers, marketing organizations and data miners. SPSS functionality ranges from simple plots and charts; through to much more sophisticated statistical tests. Although very broadly applicable, SPSS is very well-suited to analyzing survey data. It has a very broad range of applications from the relatively simple like calculating frequencies and creating lists and charts through to the far more advanced like variance analysis, multivariate statistical analysis and cluster analysis. It is also useful in building predictive models.
The goal of the course is to increase knowledge and requisite skills of participants on the use of SPSS and to enable them make the most of this powerful software package while allowing them to work independently with SPSS on their own data and provide a solid foundation for advanced data analysis work.
