Publisher Comments:

For courses in Introductory Statistics and Research Methods courses using SPSS.

 

Using SPSS guides students through the most basic of SPSS techniques using step-by-step descriptions, presents statistical techniques and instruction on how to conduct statistical analyses, and explains in detail how to avoid all the obstacles common in the study of statistics.

 

The development of easy-to-use statistical software like SPSS has changed the way statistics is being taught and learned. Students can make transformations of variables, create graphs of distributions of variables, and select among statistical analyses all at the click of a button. However, even with these advancements, students sometimes still find statistics to be an arduous task. They continue to be faced with many potential obstacles and they might feel overwhelmed and stressed rather than challenged and excited about the potential for mastering these important skills. Samuel Green and Neil Salkind have written a text to specifically address these issues.

Synopsis:

Will help anyone use SPSS to successfully analyze data, interpret results, and describe findings. This complete introductory guide to SPSS has been thoroughly updated for the software's latest versions  for Windows and Macintosh. It has also been revised throughout for greater accessibility, simplicity, and ease of use. The book provides step-by-step walkthroughs of every basic SPSS and statistical technique, along with tips, examples, exercises, and extensive pedagogical support designed to promote rapid learning. Coverage includes: mastering the SPSS interface; creating and working with data files; defining and creating variables; working with data, charts, and output; univariate descriptive statistics; univariate and multivariate analyses; correlation, regression, and discriminate analysis; scaling and nonparametric procedures; and more. For everyone who wants to master the latest versions of SPSS. SPSS is used in a wide range of markets, including psychology and other areas of scientific research; marketing and surveys; financial services and insurance; education; government; telecommunications; and beyond.
