The second edition of this popular guide demonstrates the process of entering and analyzing data using the latest version of SPSS (12.0), and is also appropriate for those using earlier versions of SPSS. The book is easy to follow because all procedures are outlined in a step-by-step format designed for the novice user. Students are introduced to the rationale of statistical tests and detailed explanations of results are given through clearly annotated examples of SPSS output. Topics covered range from descriptive statistics through multiple regression analysis. In addition, this guide includes topics not typically covered in other books such as probability theory, interaction effects in analysis of variance, factor analysis, and scale reliability. Chapter exercises reinforce the text examples and may be performed for further practice, for homework assignments, or in computer laboratory sessions.

This book can be used in two ways: as a stand-alone manual for students wishing to learn data analysis techniques using SPSS for Windows, or in research and statistics courses to be used with a basic statistics text. The book provides hands-on experience with actual data sets, helps students choose appropriate statistical tests, illustrates the meaning of results, and provides exercises to be completed for further practice or as homework assignments.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From a review:

THE AMERICAN STATISTICIAN

"The authors write well, and most concepts are explained clearly.

From the reviews of the second edition:

"It is a clearly written guide, suitable for undergraduates or maybe Masters level students with no prior experience of statistical analysis. The basic, important and necessary areas, such as probability, sampling, regression and analysis of variance are included, with enough detail (and reproduction of SPSS dialogue boxes and windows for up to version 13) to make the whole thing easy to follow." (Amanda Root, Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Vol. 169 (4), 2006)
