9780131995277: SPSS 14.0 Statistical Procedures Companion

The SPSS 14.0 Statistical Procedures Companion covers many of the more advanced statistical procedures in SPSS, which are not discussed in the SPSS 14.0 Guide to Data Analysis.  This book is intended as the continuation of the GDA.  The audience is no longer the beginning student but is instead the data analyst, either an advanced student or a professional. The Companion offers practical suggestions and emphasizes topics that arise when analyzing real data for presentations, reports, and dissertations, instead of the pristine data of homework assignments.  A data CD is included with this book.

From the Back Cover:

Data CD-ROM included.

The SPSS® 11.0 Guide to Data Analysis is a friendly introduction to both data analysis and SPSS, the world's leading desktop statistical software package. Easy-to-understand explanations and in-depth content make this guide both an excellent supplement to other statistics texts and a superb primary text for any introductory data analysis course. With the SPSS® 11.0 Guide to Data Analysis, you get a jump-start on describing data, testing hypotheses, and examining relationships using SPSS.

For SPSS 11.0, author Marija Norusis incorporates a wealth of new data, including the General Social Survey for 2000 and studies of Internet usage, opinions of the criminal justice system, marathon running times, library patronage, and the importance of manners. These new data files are supplied with the book and are used throughout the examples and expanded chapter exercises. This unique combination of examples, exercises, and contemporary data gives you hands-on experience in analyzing data and makes learning about data analysis and statistical software relevant, unintimidating, and even fun!

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

The goal of this book is to provide an unintimidating introduction to data analysis and to SPSS. This edition has been substantially revised to incorporate new data files that focus on topics that interest today's students—in particular, the role of the Internet in society. The book can be used either as a supplementary text or as a primary text in an introductory course in data analysis. It is designed for use with SPSS 11.0, including the Student Version.

Data Files

Since the best way to learn about data analysis is to actually do it, this book uses real data to solve a variety of problems. Data from the General Social Survey are used to determine who uses the Internet, and for how long, each week. Data from the Impact of the Internet on Library Use study allows students to examine the role of the Internet on traditional institutions, such as libraries. Data from the Stanford Institute for the Quantitative Study of Society allows students to investigate the effect of the Internet on socialization. But of course there's more to life than the Internet. Completion times from the Chicago marathon, opinions of the criminal justice system, and an ABC survey of manners are also analyzed. The variety of data files used should make this book appealing to a broad range of students and teachers. The data files used in the chapters and in the exercises are included with this book.

Using This Book

This book is divided into four parts: "Getting Started with SPSS," "Describing Data," "Testing Hypotheses," and "Examining Relationships." Each chapter presents a problem and introduces statistical techniques useful for solving it. Detailed descriptions of the SPSS procedures used are also provided. Each chapter also contains extensive exercises that use the data files described above, as well as others. Instructors can choose exercises that best suit the interests and sophistication of their students. Solutions to even-numbered statistical concepts exercises are in Appendix F.
