SPSS stands for Statistical Package for the Social Sciences. SPSS is a statistical and data management package for analysts and researchers. It provides you with a broad range of capabilities for the entire analytical process. SPSS is a full-range package that provides all levels of statistical analysis, data manipulation, graphical representation and report writing, among other features. With SPSS, you can generate decision-making information quickly using powerful statistics, understand and effectively present your results with high-quality tabular and graphical output, and share your results with others using a variety of reporting methods, including secure web publishing. Results from your data analysis enable you to make smarter decisions more quickly by uncovering key facts, patterns, and trends. SPSS is available for Windows and Mac OSX. Programs and data created and used in SPSS can be transported and used in SPSS running on other platforms, though some modifications may need to be made in programs written under one version and used under a different version.

We have licensed the following SPSS modules: SPSS Premium (Windows and Mac 10.6 and up) plus AMOS for Windows (only)
