SPSS 16.0 is a comprehensive system for analyzing data. SPSS can take data from almost anytype of
le and use them to generate tabulated reports, charts and plots of distributions and trends,descriptive statistics, and complex statistical analyses.This manual, the
SPSS Base 16.0 User’s Guide
, documents the graphical user interface of SPSS. Examples using the statistical procedures found in SPSS Base 16.0 are provided in theHelp system, installed with the software. Algorithms used in the statistical procedures are provided in PDF form and are available from the Help menu.In addition, beneath the menus and dialog boxes, SPSS uses a command language. Someextended features of the system can be accessed only via command syntax. (Those features arenot available in the Student Version.) Detailed command syntax reference information is availablein two forms: integrated into the overall Help system and as a separate document in PDF form inthe
SPSS 16.0 Command Syntax Reference
, also available from the Help menu.
The following options are available as add-on enhancements to the full (not Student Version)SPSS Base system:
SPSS Regression Models™
provides techniques for analyzing data that do not
t traditionallinear statistical models. It includes procedures for probit analysis, logistic regression, weightestimation, two-stage least-squares regression, and general nonlinear regression.
SPSS Advanced Models™
focuses on techniques often used in sophisticated experimental and biomedical research. It includes procedures for general linear models (GLM), linear mixedmodels, generalized linear models (GZLM), generalized estimating equations (GEE), variancecomponents analysis, loglinear analysis, actuarial life tables, Kaplan-Meier survival analysis, and basic and extended Cox regression.
creates a variety of presentation-quality tabular reports, including complexstub-and-banner tables and displays of multiple-response data.
performs comprehensive forecasting and time series analyses with multiplecurve-
tting models, smoothing models, and methods for estimating autoregressive functions.
performs optimal scaling procedures, including correspondence analysis.
provides a realistic way to measure how individual product attributes affectconsumer and citizen preferences. With SPSS Conjoint, you can easily measure the trade-off effect of each product attribute in the context of a set of product attributes—as consumers dowhen making purchasing decisions.
