SPSS for Windows Step by Step: A Simple Guide and Reference 12.0 Update efficiently shows you how to perform the most common data analysis procedures in SPSS. It is brief but comprehensive. The first part of the book explains the basics of creating and formatting a data set, and a chapter on graphs to accommodate the changes in SPSS 12.0. Chapters 6-28 explain, step-by-step, the most common procedures in the Base System Module and the Advanced and Regression Modules; each chapter is arranged in three parts: "Introduction" explains the following procedure at the general, conceptual level, avoiding excessive detail and excessive emphasis on computation. "Step by Step" boxes and screen shots break down each procedure with clear references to tasks covered in previous chapters. "Outcome" explains the output of what you have just performed and defines critical terms. All data sets used in this book are available for download on the companion website: http://www.ablongman.com/george5e, saving you the time of entering data.
