SPSS is a popular package for data analysis and graphics. This workshop shows you how to run the most widely used statistics and graphics in SPSS, as well as how to interpret the output. Topics include: exploring your data to find errors, extreme values and sparse categories; examining the distributions of continuous variables; measuring the strength of association between two continuous variables; comparing two groups on categorical and continuous variables and where to go to learn more. The hands-on lab session will employ the easy-to-use version for Microsoft Windows, but the menus are almost identical on Macintosh and UNIX. Participants should have a basic knowledge of statistics. You may bring your own laptop if you wish.
