BASIC SPSS SKILLS

SPSS - Statistical Package for the Social Sciences

Definition:

SPSS is a computer program used for survey
authoring and deployment, data mining, text
analytics, statistical analysis, and collaboration and
deployment. (Wikipedia)

BASIC SPSS SKILLS – INPUT DATA

Go to Dr.Vincent’s website and download the data
file: www.hkbu.edu.hk/~vwschow
(Lecture notes – ISEM3120 – Data set 1 & Sample
Questionnaire)

Input Data
Open SPSS (close the excel file first)
 Open an existing data source – OK
 Select your data file (in case of excel file, you need to
change the “File of type” to Excel (*.xls,*.xlsx,*.xlsm))
 Another way to open data:
File – Open – Data

BASIC SPSS SKILLS –
COMPUTE MEAN & STANDARD DEVIATION

Mean – the sum of the values divided by the
number of values.
Example: Compute the Mean of Factor 2 (Q14-Q18)
1. Transform – Compute Variable
2. Give a name for target variable: MN_F2
3. Function group: All
4. Functions and special variables: Mean (double click)
5. We get the formula of Mean in Numeric Expression: MEAN(?,?)
6. Select Q14-Q18 to replace the “?” in the formula, Qs should be
separated with a “,”
7. Click OK
8. Then we can see the mean of Factor2 (MN_F2) in the last
column of the data file.

BASIC SPSS SKILLS –
COMPUTE MEAN & STANDARD DEVIATION

Standard Deviation – shows how much variation
exists from the average (mean value).
Example: Compute the Standard Deviation of Factor 2 (Q14-Q18)
1. Transform – Compute Variable
2. Give a name for target variable: SD_F2
3. Function group: All
4. Functions and special variables: Sd (double click)
5. We get the formula of Mean in Numeric Expression: SD(?,?)
6. Select Q14-Q18 to replace the “?” in the formula, Qs should be
separated with a “,”
7. Click OK
8. Then we can see the Standard Deviation of Factor2 (SD_F2) in
the last column of the data file.

Another way to compute Mean & Std. Deviation






Analyze – Descriptive Statistics – Frequencies
Select the variables you would like to compute, in this
case, Q14 – Q18
Click Statistics
Check “Mean” and “Std. deviation”, and click Continue
Click OK
Then you can see the result in the output window

BASIC SPSS SKILLS –
PLOT PIE CHART & HISTOGRAM

Pie chart



Graphs – Legacy Dialogues – Pie
Select “Summaries of groups of cases”, click Define
Drag the variable you want to plot pie chart into
“Define slices by”
Click OK
Then you can see the pie chart in the output window


Graphs – Legacy Dialogues – Histogram
Select the variable
Check “display normal curve”
Click OK
Then you can see the histogram in the output window

BASIC SPSS SKILLS –
RUN A REGRESSION MODEL

Y = aX1 + bX2
Y: Dependent variable
 X1, X2: Independent variable
 a, b: coefficient

10
BASIC SPSS SKILLS –
RUN A REGRESSION MODEL
Example:
 Run a regression modeling with Factor2 (F2),
Factor4 (F4) and Overall User Satisfaction (OUS)






Compute the Mean value of F2, F4, and OUS :
MN_F2, MN_F4, MN_OUS
Analyze – Regression – Linear
Put MN_OUS into Dependent
Put MN_F2 and MN_F4 into Independent
Read the result: R2, β, Sig.
