Saturday 3rd June 2017 from 8:30AM-5:00PM

Data Capital International announces one day training in data analysis using Statistical Package of Social Scientists (SPSS) scheduled for 3rd June 2017. SPSS is a widely used program for statistical analysis in social science. It is also used by market researchers, health researchers, survey companies, government, education researchers, marketing organizations, data miners, and others. In addition to statistical analysis, data management (case selection, file reshaping, creating derived data) and data documentation (a metadata dictionary was stored in the data file) are features of the base software.


The package manages Descriptive statistics: Cross tabulation, Frequencies, Descriptives, Explore, Descriptive Ratio Statistics; Bivariatestatistics: Means, t-test, ANOVA, Correlation (bivariate, partial, distances),  Nonparametric tests; Prediction for numerical outcomes: Linear regression; Prediction for identifying groups: Factor analysis and cluster analysis (two-step, K-means, hierarchical) etc.

The command syntax programming of SPSS gives it the benefits of reproducibility, simplifying repetitive tasks, and handling complex data manipulations and analyses.  SPSS provides an opportunity for effective data management. It makes data analysis quicker because the program knows the location of the cases and variables. SPSS key capabilities include data management, statistical analysis, graphics, simulations, regression, and custom programming. It’s much easier and better than SAS and Eviews for deeper analysis and presentation of results.
