Introduction to IBM SPSS

SPSS is widely covered due to its straightforward and English-like command language and impressively thorough user manual. SPSS is considered and accepted as an extremely powerful tool for manipulating and deciphering survey data. 

SPSS is used by market researchers, health researchers, survey companies, government entities, education researchers, marketing organisations, data miners, and many more for processing and analysing survey data.

 Major Benefits:

  •  SPSS offers reliable and fast answers.
  • It has very dynamic and useful tables and graphs
  • Better user interface compared to other software.
  • Provides feedback in decision making.
  • Various types of complex statistical tests are available as a built-in feature.
  • Higher Job opportunities.

Popular Career Opportunities:

  • Data Analyst
  • Thesis Analysis
  • Research Analyst
  • Data scientist


The course is designed to provide students with transferable skills, to understand the uses of SPSS, as a tool to summarise and aid in the interpretation of research findings.

On completing this course students will:

  • Be comfortable using SPSS as a data analysis tool.
  • Understand how to work with SPSS.
  • Learn to use new features of SPSS on their own.
  • Acquire information (samples).
  • Enter and reorganise information within SPSS.
  • Effectively summarise research finds using SPSS through the use of appropriate indexes and tables.
  • Able to choose charts to successfully highlight their research results.
  • Able to understand and interpret charts.
  • Understand the basic principles behind inferential statistics.
  • Carry out inferential statistical analysis using SPSS.
  • Integrate information and build models.
  • Edit SPSS output.
  • Use SPSS output to produce scientifically sound research reports.
