Описание: A new edition of the internationally successful, user-friendly guide that takes students and researchers through the often daunting process of analysing research data with the widely-used SPSS software package. Fully revised and updated for SPSS Version 15, it features new material on graphs and examples from a wide range of disciplines.

The SPSS Survival Manual throws a lifeline to students and researchers grappling with the SPSS data analysis software.

In this fully revised edition of her bestselling text, Julie Pallant guides you through the entire research process, helping you choose the right data analysis technique for your project. From the formulation of research questions, to the design of the study and analysis of data, to reporting the results, Julie discusses basic and advanced statistical techniques. She outlines each technique clearly, with step-by-step procedures for performing the analysis, a detailed guide to interpreting SPSS output and an example of how to present the results in a report.

For both beginners and experienced SPSS users in psychology, education, business, sociology, health and related disciplines, the SPSS Survival Manual is an essential guide. Illustrated with screen grabs, examples of output and tips, it is supported by a website with sample data and guidelines on report writing.

In this third edition all chapters have been updated to accommodate changes to SPSS procedures, screens and output. A new flowchart is included for SPSS procedures, and factor analysis procedures have been streamlined. It includes extra examples and material on syntax. Additional datafiles are available on the book's support website.
