This text offers a short, quick, easy-to-use reference to the major concepts behind SPSS-X, its routines and its functions. The carefully arranged sequence of topics helps students to learn SPSS-X in a logical, non-threatening way, with clear definitions of terms and functions within the program. There are two unique chapters - on using the microcomputer version of SPSS/PC+ and on analysing census data tapes. An analysis of happiness (using data from the NORC 1984 General Society Survey) is used to illustrate the various procedures and to provide coherence. Included is a suggested research project (on people and their happiness level) to give students experience in analysis, from data collection to final product. The book contains extensive problems, examples, exercises and sample output displays. Appendices on special advanced topics, include the differences between SPSS and SPSS-X, and the SPSS system file. It has a logical, clear presentation, and glossary and answers to problems. No computer familiarity or prior knowledge of SPSS-X is assumed and only a minimal knowledge of statistics is required. This book should be of interest to first year undergraduate and diploma students taking courses in social research methods or social statistics where SPSS-X is used.
