Advanced Statistical Analysis Using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS)

Training Course on Advanced Statistical Analysis Using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS)

INTRODUCTION
SPSS means Statistical Package for the Social Sciences, and it is appropriate for complex statistical data analysis of social science data. SPSS software allows for thorough data management in terms of organizing and managing data and also offers the user a lot of control. Other benefits of the software in data analysis includes it is good in data screening and cleaning, Better organization of the output in a separate window with the data editor window which avoid any data being deleted. This 5 days course intend to equip participants with advanced techniques using SPSS software.
