Performing Data Analysis Using IBM SPSS

Book Description

Features easy-to-follow insight and clear guidelines to perform data analysis using SPSS®

Performing Data Analysis Using IBM SPSS® uniquely addresses the presented statistical procedures with an example problem, detailed analysis, and the related data sets. Data entry procedures, variable naming, and step-by-step instructions for all analyses are provided in addition to IBM SPSS point-and-click methods, including details on how to view and manipulate output.

Designed as a user’s guide for students and other interested readers to perform statistical data analysis with IBM SPSS, this book addresses the needs, level of sophistication, and interest in introductory statistical methodology on the part of readers in social and behavioral science, business, health-related, and programs. Each chapter of Performing Data Analysis Using IBM SPSS covers a particular statistical procedure and offers the following: an example problem or analysis goal, together with a data set; IBM SPSS analysis with step-by-step analysis setup and accompanying screen shots; and IBM SPSS output with screen shots and narrative on how to read or interpret the results of the analysis.

The book provides in-depth chapter coverage of:

  • IBM SPSS statistical output
  • Descriptive procedures
  • Score assumption evaluations
  • Bivariate correlation
  • Regressing (predicting) quantitative and categorical variables
  • Survival analysis
  • t Test
  • Multivariate group differences
  • Multidimensional scaling
  • Cluster analysis
  • Nonparametric procedures for frequency data

Performing Data Analysis Using IBM SPSS is an excellent text for upper-undergraduate and graduate-level students in courses on social, behavioral, and health sciences as well as secondary education, research , and statistics. Also an excellent reference, the book is ideal for professionals and researchers in the social, behavioral, and health sciences; applied statisticians; and practitioners working in industry.
