Summary

Summary

This textbook is a hands-on guide to data analysis using SPSS for Windows, one of the most widely used statistical packages available for the PC. The guide was designed to be used with version 8.0 of SPSS and beyond, although many of the procedures are also applicable to earlier versions of SPSS. Instructions are provided for using the World Wide Web to obtain the data sets to be analyzed. With this guide, students learn how to conduct reasonably sophisticated statistical analyses using SPSS while gaining insight into the nature and purpose of statistical investigation. This self-instructional book is easy to follow since all procedures are outlined in a step-by-step format. The reader is walked through numerous examples that illustrate statistical analyses using the SPSS program. Results produced by SPSS are shown and discussed in each application. Statistical topics range from descriptive statistics through multiple regression, including probability theory. Chapter exercises reinforce the text examples and may be performed for further practice, for homework assignments, or in computer laboratory sessions.
