About SPSS

SPSS (Statistical Package for the Social Sciences) has now been in development for more than thirty years. Originally developed as a programming language for conducting statistical analysis, it has grown into a complex and powerful application with now uses both a graphical and a syntactical interface and provides various functions for managing, analyzing, and presenting data.
Its statistical capabilities alone range from simple percentages to complex analyses of variance, multiple regressions, and general linear models. SPSS also provides extensive data management functions, along with a complex and powerful programming language.

Course Overview

This foundation course focuses on the following key areas:

  • Exploring the various functions for managing your data
  • Conducting statistical analyses
  • Creating tables and charts
