Introduction to SPSS

This workshop will provide an introduction to the use of SPSS through the point-and-click features and the use of syntax (programming language). The workshop is designed for beginners and for intermediate users who need a refresher in the use of the software; no programming knowledge and/or experience is expected. We will start with data entry and an overview of importing data from other software. Then we will cover multiple examples regarding data manipulation and data cleaning procedures. Afterwards we will cover examples of descriptives and data analysis. Some of the data analyses that we will cover are: chi-square, t-tests, and regression.
