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 analyses, 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 analyses. Nowadays, all one needs to know is the appropriate analyses to perform on their data and how to do it so they can 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 (including questionnaire) effectively.

This workshop is for you if you are involved in analyzing data within your organization. If you are involved in quantitative consumer research, you will benefit by learning new quantitative data analysis skills.
