IBM SPSS Statistics Syntax I (0G406G)
Who should attend
This intermediate course is for
- Those who want to learn the basic skills of SPSS Statistics syntax for use in repetitive production tasks.
- Those who are responsible for using and maintaining SPSS syntax jobs developed by others.
You should have:
- On the job experience running SPSS Statistics using the graphical user interface (dialog boxes) or completion of the Introduction to SPSS Statistics course.
- Familiarity with basic SPSS operations for reading and saving data, variable definition, compute and recode data transformations, frequencies and crosstabs, editing and saving results.
Syntax is the command language that gives instructions to SPSS Statistics on how to modify, manage, and analyze your data. Syntax programs can be used to automate repetitive tasks and perform additional options that are not available in the dialog boxes. You will learn the rules of SPSS syntax, how to generate syntax from the dialog boxes, modify and optimize its use. The approach of the course will be that the dialog boxes and syntax are complementary.
