SPSS is an integrated set of analysis tools and modules for the whole analysis process from questionnaire design and improvement, data collection and data cleaning to organizing, graphing, presenting and analyzing data. Using SPSS , you can analyze, find relations among factors, predict effect of factors on each other with confidence and based on the results you can make better decisions.SPSS provides a professional tool for instructors to teach statistics and decision making effectively. SPSS provides professional analytics tools for a wide range of subjects in Colleges and Universities such as social sciences, management, economics, mathematics and statistics, tourism, education, engineering and many others.
Why SPSS is better than Microsoft Excel
- It is much easier to use SPSS because it has been designed for statistical analysis.
- SPSS is more powerful than Excel because of more analytics tools available in the package.
- SPSS has better design when it comes to data entry, organizing data and analytical graphs.
- Pivot tables is SPSS are more flexible and more powerful than in Excel.
- SPSS has almost 99% of statistical tests in the packages built in the software plus some management tools such as factor reduction, quality control tools,categorical data analysis and random data creator based on required probability distributions.
- SPSS has better presentation of results and that helps a lot in interpretation and report writing.
