The new edition highlights the differences between the versions and now includes coverage of reliability measures, partial correlations, and using statistics for scale constructions. Comprehensive in coverage, the book reviews advanced statistical material such as ANCOVA, factor analysis, logistic regression, and discriminant analysis as well as issues related to research design, data entry, data handling, data manipulation and modification in SPSS; how to calculate basic statistical procedures using SPSS; tests of difference for two sample designs, tests of correlation, and tests for nominal and categorical data; and tests for experiments involving complex designs or for data obtained using surveys. Each statistical test features a brief description, an example of typical or actual research that might be analyzed using the test, and step-by-step instructions on how to perform the test using SPSS. Numerous screenshots and detailed descriptions of the steps required to perform the test, are included. Annotated examples of SPSS output help the reader understand and report the results of their analyses. Information on how to insert output into a text document is also included. The data used in the examples is found in an appendix and on a book specific Web site.

Each chapter demonstrates statistical procedures and provides exer cises that reinforce the text examples and can be performed for further practice. Chapter 1 of this guide describes how to start the SPSS program and how to open data files. Chapters 2 through 16 give descriptions of statistical procedures which assume that a data file has been opened. This manual describes basic de scriptive statistics through multiple regression analysis, with three chapters (7-9) that discuss probability theory. Simple definitions of statistical concepts are pro vided for each procedure.

A greatly expanded and heavily revised second edition, this popular guide provides instructions and clear examples for running analyses of variance (ANOVA) and several other related statistical tests of significance with SPSS. No other guide offers the program statements required for the more advanced tests in analysis of variance. All of the programs in the book can be run using any version of SPSS, including versions 11 and 11.5. A table at the end of the preface indicates where each type of analysis (e.g., simple comparisons) can be found for each type of design (e.g., mixed two-factor design). Providing comprehensive coverage of the basic and advanced topics in ANOVA, this is the only book available that provides extensive coverage of SPSS syntax, including the commands and subcommands that tell SPSS what to do, as well as the pull-down menu point-and-click method (PAC). Detailed explanation of the syntax, including what is necessary, desired, and optional helps ensure that users can validate the analysis being performed. The book features the output of each design along with a complete explanation of the related printout. The new edition was reorganized to provide all analysis related to one design type in the same chapter. It now features expanded coverage of analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) and mixed designs, new chapters on designs with random factors, multivariate designs, syntax used in PAC, and all new examples of output with complete explanations. The new edition is accompanied by a CD-ROM with all of the book's data sets, as well as exercises for each chapter. This book is ideal for readers familiar with the basic concepts of the ANOVA technique including both practicing researchers and data analysts, as well as advanced students learning analysis of variance.
