After providing a brief overview of SPSS and basic statistical concepts, the book covers: " Descriptive statistics " t-tests, chi-square tests and ANOVA " Correlation analysis " Multiple and logistics regression " Factor analysis and testing scale reliability " Advanced data handling Illustrated with simple, practical problems, and with the help of screen shots, this book outlines the steps for solving statistical problems using SPSS. Even though the illustrations are based on version 14.0 of SPSS, users of the earlier versions (10, 11, 12, 13) will find the book equally useful.
