SPSS (Statistical Package for the Social Sciences) is a professional statistical analysis software package.
As you probably already know, statistical methods like linear regression, t-test and ANOVA, involve complex formulas and calculations. The company that developed SPSS software employs high level statisticians that work with software developers to implement these complex formulas and calculations.
SPSS software has been in existence for many years and has a very good reputation for the integrity of the calculations. In fact, it is so well known, that faculty are often reassured that the statistical calculations for the dissertation were performed using SPSS.
Although SPSS has a graphical user interface (i.e. it is easy to point and click your way through the software), students often find the number of options that need to be specified for each analysis overwhelming. Specifying the correct options is essential to performing the right analysis.
Beyond that, the other challenge is learning how to properly interpret and report the results of the SPSS output. Many of my clients wish they had avoided the lost time and frustration they encountered trying to learn how to use SPSS to analyze the data by themselves.
The best way to get the benefit of a properly done SPSS analysis without investing your time and frustration in the SPSS learning curve is to get SPSS help from an experienced statistical consultant who is an expert in the use of SPSS software.
As a fully qualified statistician , I have performed thousands of data analyses using SPSS for doctoral students and other researchers in the fields of education, organizational management and leadership, psychology, health sciences, and many other areas.
When you hire me to handle the statistical considerations for your dissertation, I carefully determine the appropriate statistical tests for your research and I use the SPSS software to perform the statistical analyses of your data. I provide a detailed written report that demonstrates how to interpret and report all of the SPSS tables and graphs resulting from the analysis. I also provide ongoing statistics help as needed, to ensure that you fully understand all of the statistics that I used for your study.
