SPSS is the data analysis package of choice for people wanting to analyze quantitative data. However, most practitioners find dealing with quantitative data quite daunting. Although most practitioners are quite comfortable with qualitative research methods and analysis, they tend to shy away from using quantitative statistics. However, the ability to perform quantitative data analysis is increasingly becoming an important skill to possess. Actually most people’s fear of statistics is unfounded. The advent of computer software programmes such as SPSS that can be used to analyze data, has meant that people do not have to know or learn mathematical formulae in order to be able to perform quantitative statistical analysis. Nowadays, all needs to know is the most appropriate analysis to perform on their data and obtain the information they need to know.
This is a hands-on session where tips and tricks are given to students to help them use the SPSS software to analyze quantitative data effectively.
