Researcher Development Programme (RDP): SPSS 2 – Intermediate

SPSS 2 – Intermediate

Monday 23 March 2020, 10:00-12:00

This session will cover the performance of basic descriptive statistical analyses using SPSS, including an introduction to the generation of both tables and graphs for presenting data. Colleagues will also be shown how to transform variables from raw data into more appropriate forms for summaries. For example, whilst it may be important to record exact ages for a sample of people, it can also be useful to be able display data for age categories. This is where the ability to transform a variable would be important. Finally, the session will include instruction on how to use filters in order to analyse different sections of a database separately. This can be very important when working with a large set of data.
