Are you confused by SPSS?
Do you understand the concepts of statistics but struggle with the computer analysis?
Are you tired of figuring out in hours what should only take you minutes?
Or are you just looking for a straightforward, comprehensive reference for SPSS?
SPSS for Windows Step by Step: A Simple Guide and Reference, 16.0 Update efficiently shows you how to perform the most common data analysis procedures in SPSS. The first part of the book explains the basics of creating and formatting a data set, and includes a chapter on graphs that accommodates the changes in SPSS 16.0. Chapters 6-28 explain, step by step, the most common procedures in the Base System Module and the Advanced and Regression Modules. Each chapter is arranged in three parts:
1. Each “Introduction” explains the procedures that follow at the conceptual level, avoiding excessive detail and excessive emphasis on computation.
2. “Step by Step” boxes and screenshots break down each procedure with clear references to tasks covered in previous chapters.
3. “Outcome” sections explain the output of what you have just performed and define critical terms.
All data sets used in this book are available for download on the companion website, saving you the time of entering data.
