Cancelled: SPSS I Introduction to SPSS

September 20 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

Modern Languages Building (MLB), Room 2001A

Note: Topic order is subject to change.

This workshop is designed to introduce participants to SPSS. It will cover the fundamentals of SPSS, within-case transformations, data management with multiple files, and basic statistics and graphics. Useful for any scholar engaged in quantitative research.

Fundamentals

This portion introduces SPSS, the menu and the help systems, and the three main types of files used.  It then addresses defining variables, attaching labels, defining missing values, and various ways to enter data into SPSS.  Finally, it covers a brief introduction to obtaining frequency distributions, descriptive statistics, and cross tabulations of variables.

Within-Case Transformations

This portion introduces data management capabilities, including recoding variables (manual and automatic), computing new variables using formulas, and counting occurrences of values within subjects.  Attention then turns to temporary transformations, conditional processing of transformations, and repetitive transformations.

Data Management with Multiple Files

This portion begins with a discussion of subsetting data files by drawing samples, selecting groups and excluding groups from analysis.  Then, the two main methods of merging SPSS data files are covered: adding additional variables and adding additional cases.

Basic Statistical Analysis

The portion includes a brief demonstration of a statistical analysis in SPSS. While not delving deep into statistical theory, we will cover the basics of an analysis, as well as discuss the graphing facilities in SPSS.
